Genevos Unveils Next-Generation Marine Fuel Cell for Sustainable Shipping

Genevos, a pioneer in hydrogen fuel cell technology for the maritime industry, has announced the launch of its advanced marine fuel cell, the HPM-250. This release marks a significant step in Genevos’s strategic development, driven by the growing accessibility of green hydrogen, stricter emissions regulations, and increased environmental concerns about underwater noise affecting marine life.

The HPM-250, a 250 kW power system, is designed to meet the demands of the maritime sector, including cargo ships, offshore workboats, and coastal ferries, which require energy-intensive and prolonged offshore operations. Recognizing the importance of sustainability, Genevos has developed this plug-and-play solution to simplify integration for shipbuilders and OEMs while ensuring safety and compliance with marine certification standards.

Awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) by Bureau Veritas (BV), the HPM-250 is on track for Type Approval in 2025. This modular system offers high scalability and redundancy, operates without vibration, and meets zero-emission standards, reducing maintenance needs and enhancing the lifespan of maritime vessels.

As a key player in various flagship projects, Genevos’s new marine fuel cell system demonstrates how hydrogen technology can mitigate the environmental footprint of commercial maritime operations. The HPM-250 is well-positioned to support the transition to low-carbon fuel options in the sector, particularly as large-scale green hydrogen production is expected to ramp up from 2025, improving hydrogen availability at major ports.

The HPM-250 not only meets emission reduction targets but also provides a scalable solution that is adaptable for long-range and deep-sea applications. It is compatible with methanol and other e-fuel reformers, which can produce purified hydrogen gas, offering efficient power conversion that surpasses traditional combustion methods.
