TECO 2030, BLOM Maritime and Samskip receive ENOVA grant to retrofit Samskip LNG Vessel with fuel cells and hydrogen fuel

TECO 2030 together with BLOM Maritime and Samskip have received a grant for a pre-project aiming to retrofit Samskip’s vessel Kvitnos with TECO 2030 fuel cells and hydrogen fuel.

This project aims to reduce emissions from this LNG-fueled vessel, which currently operates on a weekly multipurpose service from Rotterdam, The Netherlands and along most of the Norwegian coastline to Hammerfest.

The goal of the project is to prepare for an investment decision to retrofit Kvitnos. The project also aims to facilitate long-term hydrogen fuel supply contracts due to the vessel’s fixed route.


Blom Maritime will support naval architects, piping engineers and structural engineers to produce the documentation needed to obtain preliminary approval of the fuel cell and hydrogen solution. Blom Maritime has its main expertise in engineering for retrofitting solutions, a great strength for this project.

Samskip is a multimodal logistics company, offering transport services by land, sea, rail and air around the world. The group has an annual turnover of €900 million, and currently has offices in 24 countries and a network covering 35 countries. Samskip has already one hydrogen-powered container vessel under construction in the SeaShuttle project. This new retrofit project with Kvitnos may become Samskip’s second hydrogen project.
