A Seanergy division will join the Safecraft Project Consortium to retrofit a ship to use hydrogen as the main energy source. In December of last year, the European Commission founded the project and committed $10 million to the $13.5 million cost. The Safecraft consortium includes a dozen shipping, engineering, and research organizations committed to demonstrate the safety and viability of Sustainable Alternative Fuels (SAFs). Hydrogen will be the main source of electric power generation and will also help with propulsion.
Hydrogen ships are coming. Hydrogen ships (including submarines) have been around for decades, but are becoming more common place in recent years. The MF Hydra, for example, became the first hydrogen-powered ferry in 2021. China has launched a hydrogen ship in 2022 and is developing more. Kawasaki has been approved to develop an engine that will run on hydrogen for use on carriers. Other vessels such as yachts and speedboats use hydrogen fuel cells to provide electricity. Seanergy is the first Greek-based shipping company to form a partnership with Safecraft.
