As part of the study, both hydrogen and hydrogen derived fuels will be studied for its integration into shipping and to develop a supply chain for it.

Longitude’s role is to lead the study and provide technical expertise related to maritime applications of hydrogen.

The study is being executed in collaboration with shipping, energy regulatory and financial expertise from other study team members consisting of experts from the Rebel Group and Equitable Maritime Consulting.

Jacob Genauer, Managing Director of Longitude Engineering’s Singapore operation, said, “It is exciting to support a national energy company in developing a roadmap to utilise domestic renewable energy resources to reduce the carbon footprint of its domestic shipping fleet.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Asian Development Bank and Pertamina on this project.”

North American Hydrogen Summit

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
