TECO 2030 launches new concept Power Barge; containerized fuel cells
19 September 2022
TECO 2030 has launched a new product concept for its containerized fuel cells, the TECO 2030 Power Barge. The solution comprises TECO 2030 fuel cell modules, batteries, power electronics, safety- and automation systems, hydrogen storage, and a refueling solution.
The concept forms a scalable multimegawatt solution for electricity production for shore power from hydrogen. The TECO 2030 Fuel Cell Generator is a complete hydrogen-powered genset that can replace both on- and offshore fossil fueled generators for shore power solutions, strengthening of local grids, emergency generators for data centers and more.
The concept allows major benefits in terms of increased safety, reduced operational costs, reduced land area use, increased flexibility while also eliminating harmful emissions.
The floating and mobile solution for shore power in locations with insufficient electrical grid and for ships at anchor will become a game changer in reducing and eliminating harmful emissions along our coastlines and in ports. Fuel Cells can be used for almost any application and infrastructure solutions where power generation is needed.—Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030
Overall, the concept is in line with the European Commission’s proposal launched 14 September 2022 to make available more than €5 billion for European transport infrastructure projects. The funding will support projects across all EU Member States along the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) a network of rail, inland waterways, ports, and roads that connect Europe.
