Proton Motor supplies Fincantieri with new fuel cell system HyShip 72

Maritime mobility of the future navigates with emission-free hydrogen fuel cell drive on board: The Bavarian hydrogen fuel cell specialist Proton Motor Fuel Cell is now successfully delivering its high-tech innovation HyShip 72. For the largest European shipbuilding group Fincantieri S.p.A., based in Trieste, two fully redundant HyShip 72 product designs were primarily adapted for the power supply of the electric powertrain and other consumers of the “ZEUS” ship (Zero Emission Ultimate Ship).

The hydrogen-powered propulsion solution is equipped with Proton Motor fuel cells, a battery system as well as a metal hydride hydrogen storage system. This eco-friendly H2 hybrid arrangement is the main power supply for the zero-emission navigation. The waste heat can also be used thermally, as intended for ZEUS, to extract the hydrogen from the metal hydrate. The core of a singular HyShip 72 are two integrated Proton Motor stack modules PM 400-120.
