Nedstack Fuel Cell Technology, a Dutch provider of hydrogen fuel cell solutions, has received an Approval in Principle (AiP) from Bureau Veritas (BV) for its PemGen 600 containerised fuel cell system, which the company says represents a major milestone in advancing clean and sustainable power generation in the maritime industry.
The PemGen 600 fuel cell system, powered by hydrogen, is specifically engineered to deliver efficient and reliable energy while operating without emissions. It is characterised by the following:
- The system provides a robust and sustainable energy solution for marine vessels, ensuring a reliable power supply. The system has been based on proven technology and over two decades of experience in the industrial application of LT-PEM fuel cell technology.
- The system utilises hydrogen as fuel and has no harmful emissions, contributing to the decarbonisation efforts of the maritime industry.
- The Nedstack safety concept has a proven track record and is based on a good ventilation, high dilution philosophy. A range of projects adopting this philosophy have already been delivered in maritime and industry.
Nedstack CCO Jogchum Bruinsma said: “We are extremely proud to receive Approval in Principle from Bureau Veritas for our PemGen 600 fuel cell system design. This recognition highlights our commitment to delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for the maritime sector. We believe that hydrogen fuel cell technology has tremendous potential to revolutionise power generation in the industry, and this approval marks a significant step towards realising that vision.”
The BV AiP validates the compliance of the PemGen fuel cell system design with BV’s NR467 – Classification Rules for fuel cell power systems on board ships. Nedstack Fuel Cell Technology will continue to collaborate closely with BV throughout the classification and certification process to ensure the highest standards of safety and performance.
