For the world's first emission-free drone ship with hydrogen propulsion, Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH was commissioned with the development of a fuel cell. In partnership with the "University of Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute", the project of the London-based company ACUA Ocean is intended for monitoring and protecting marine assets and offshore infrastructure.
Funding grants of GBP 1.05 million through the call for "Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition" from UK Department of Transport are positioning Great Britain at the forefront of green technologies and maritime decarbonisation. The renowned magazine Marine Technology Reporter has put the innovation on its front cover for its 100th edition. Proton Motor congratulates ACUA Ocean on the great article about the introduction of hydrogen in the maritime sector.
