Hanwha Aerospace, Hanwha Ocean to develop hydrogen fuel cells for ships

Hanwha Aerospace and Hanwha Ocean, both affiliated with Hanwha Group, Korea’s seventh-largest business group, will jointly develop hydrogen fuel cells for ships as part of a government-led green energy project.

Hanwha Aerospace was selected by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy to conduct a research and development project for 200 kW-class hydrogen fuel cell power packs for ships.

The initiative aims to enter the global eco-friendly ship market by combining the technologies of the aerospace company and the shipbuilder.

Previously, the two companies jointly developed an MWh-class energy storage system (ESS) that can be applied to large ships such as liquefied natural gas carriers (LNGC) and super-large crude oil carriers (VLCCs).

We plan to expand the technology secured through the development of hydrogen fuel cells for aviation to the marine field. We will develop a world-class hydrogen fuel cell for ships with clean marine technology synergy with Hanwha Ocean and provide a carbon-free ship solution.

—Moon Seung-hak, head of Hanhwa Aerospace Electric Promotion System

We plan to solidify our position as a leader in the global eco-friendly ship market by launching a large-capacity high-efficiency and high-durability hydrogen fuel battery developed through this project and a carbon-free large-scale ship that is applied to Hanwh-Aerospace’s MWh-class ESS.

—Kim Hyung-seok, director of Hanwha Ocean Product Strategic Technology



Solid oxide fuel cells in the megawatt class running LNG could do wonders to lower the costs the pollution and slow global warming in the next decade whether we do it remains to be seen


Yes SJC .This should work well as a stopgap until Small Modular Nuclear Reactors are ready for primetime .Then we can ditch the fossil fuels.
