Sustainable HYdrogen powered Shipping

sHYpS aims at supporting the decarbonisation of the shipping industry, by leveraging on previous and on-going work and investment made by the consortium members. The project will develop a novel LH2 swappable storage solution, which can be adapted to multiple types of vessels and speed up achieving IMO’s target for 2030 and 2050.

The shipping industry is facing one of the most demanding challenges ever: to find the way to achieve zero-emission navigation. The time to achieve such goal is very short: the next big deadline imposed by the IMO is to reduce the total annual GHG emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050.

Hydrogen is one of few zero-emission solutions that is very promising, but the technology necessary to use it on board is not completely ready. To combine the tight application times and the technological gap, sHYpS is centered around the idea of a swappable storage system for the liquid hydrogen, based on new c-type ISO containers. This solution can enable a full zero emission ship platform in the needed time.
