General – Hydrogen-Powered
Windcat Workboats announced an additional order of six hydrogen-powered vessels by 2024.
The six additional hydrogen-powered vessels include four vessels of the MK3.5H2 series, two of which will be delivered in 2022 and two in 2023. The next vessel which will be delivered in this series is intended for the German offshore-market and will be operated by our joint-venture partner FRS Windcat. The other two vessels will be of the new MK5 series, 27-metre vessels with double the hydrogen capacity of the MK3.5H2 series.
CMB.TECH and Windcat Workboats are working together to further optimise engine capacities with the aim of increasing the percentage of hydrogen used in their dual fuel design. The long-term plan is to develop the technology and infrastructure to eventually enable a mono-fuel option through the internal combustion engine (ICE).
