Hydrogen Fueling for Ships

Shipping accounts for significant global emissions.* Replacing conventional ships in the sea with ships fueled with clean hydrogen or clean hydrogen-based ammonia can reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.

Air Products is the leading supplier of hydrogen globally with decades of experience designing and implementing hydrogen fueling systems, including for decarbonized shipping. We’re here to support your decarbonization needs

Why do we need hydrogen-powered ships?

In heavy applications such as shipping that require the ability for long-range travel and quick refueling times, hydrogen becomes a more efficient option than battery electric power.
