On 1 January 2021 the European project e-SHyIPS ("Ecosystemic knowledge in Standards for Hydrogen Implementation on Passenger Ship") was launched, which involves 7 European countries working together to define the new guidelines for an effective introduction of hydrogen in maritime passenger transport sector, and to boost its adoption within the global and EU strategy for a clean and sustainable environment, towards the accomplishment of a zero-emission navigation scenario. Proton Motor is proud to be partner of the new maritime project e-SHyIPS.

Through an ecosystem approach, where all the main stakeholders from maritime and hydrogen sectors, research and industry will be involved, the e-SHyIPS project will integrate theoretical pre-normative research activities on standards with simulation and laboratory experiments, in order to provide the needed knowledge to design an appropriate certification process and spot future standardization activities to enhance the EU normative and regulatory landscape.
