Final Conference and Press Q & A
On the occasion of the established worldwide leading exhibition for the shipping industry, the SMM, the summarized results of the research and lighthouse project e4ships, which has been funded by the Federal Government, will be presented to the public for the fi rst time. Further, in a press Q & A, questions and perspectives of fuel cells in the maritime sector are discussed with high ranking politicians, as the Parliamentary State Secretary Norbert Barthle (BMVI) and Senator Frank Horch from the City of Hamburg as well as industry representatives and maritime experts.

e4ships - fuel cells in marine applications
In order to meet stricter regulations, the emissions of seagoing vessels, above all in harbours, need to be decreased strongly in future. The advantages of generating power via fuel cells onboard ships are twofold: the emission of toxic pollutants is reduced and the efficiency of the facilities is improved. Thus they present an attractive alternative to conventional ship aggregates, and can contribute considerably to decreasing harmful emissions.
The project e4ships aims to improve significantly the energy supply onboard large vessels. To realise this, the use of PEM and high-temperature fuel cells is being planned; these should enable a considerable reduction in emissions and fuel use.
In addition to the technical implantation on different vessel types, another important challenge is to derive technical standards for all system types and performance classes. Moreover, better high-performance energy supply systems need to be planned for the future.
