Electrochemical technology specialist Ceres joined its consortium partners in Portsmouth today (May 24th) for the conclusion of Phase One of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC).
The competition is part of a £23m investment made by the UK Government in 2021 to accelerate development, design, and manufacture of zero-emission vessels in British shipyards by 2025.
Ceres’ solution involves integrating its solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology in megawatt (MW) class cruise ship applications to lower emissions in the maritime sector.
The consortium – comprised of Ceres, GE Power Conversion, MSC Cruise Management UK, and Lloyd’s Register – has confirmed the feasibility of using a 10MW fuel cell power installation to replace diesel-fuelled generators on large vessels.
