Freire, Astander and Astilleros de Mallorca study an innovative electricity supply system thanks to the exploitation of green hydrogen
The project is supported by SOERMAR, the Technology Centre Foundation
Three Spanish shipyards, -C.N.P. Freire, Astilleros de Santander and Astilleros de Mallorca-, are carrying out a feasibility study to develop an innovative electricity supply system thanks to the exploitation of green hydrogen. With the support of the Technology Centre Foundation SOERMAR the shipyards are already working on the advanced conceptual design of a hydrogen production and storage package that will feed a fuel cell for power generation. Un planteamiento completamente disruptivo que cuenta con el respaldo de la Dirección General de Industria y de la Pequeña y Mediana Empresa del Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Turismo, explica el Clúster Marítimo de Cantabria.
If the findings of this study materialize, the participating shipyards would cover part of their energy demand with clean energy produced from a renewable, cheap and unlimited source. In fact, it would facilitate decision-making to improve their electrical efficiency and help reduce their environmental footprint. In this way, its desire and commitment to comply with the environmental premises set out in the 2030 Agenda of the European Union is demonstrated, says the Cluster.
