Condor H2 brings more than 40 partners together to enable emission-free inland and near-shore shipping on hydrogen, using an innovative system of special ‘tanktainers’.
Modular, scalable and affordable
Condor H2 will provide fuel-cells with a battery pack as well as hydrogen storage on a pay-per-use basis to enable zero-emission shipping with limited up-front investments for ship owners. The hydrogen will be delivered in ‘tanktainers’ which can be easily loaded on board and quickly swapped when empty, allowing maximum flexibility for longer journeys.
A RH2INE zero-emission shipping project
The project is part of the RH2INE network, a cooperation between ports, regional governments and market parties along the Rhine corridor, ranging from Belgium and the Netherlands up to Switzerland. Condor H2 brings together 6 ports and more than 40 partners, spanning the entire value chain from hydrogen suppliers and distributors to technology providers and shipowners.
Reduction of 100,000 tons per year
The consortium aims to have the first vessels sailing in 2025 and to enable 50 emission-free vessels by 2030. This would contribute to a CO2 reduction of 100,000 tons per year.
