Oct 15 2020


The ultimate goal is to achieve a full-scale engine of 10 MW, Odfjell tells ShippingWatch.

"The fuel cell technology is very promising. The key point for commercial use within shipping and offshore will be price, lifetime costs and the engine technology's service life. When we build ships, they typically need to be operational for approximately 25 years" .
Harald Fotland, COO, Odfjell
