Hydrogen - ship-based solution - LOHC

Client: Gasnor / Schedule: 2020

As a part of the ‘Grønt Skipsfartsprogram’ REINERTSEN New Energy has executed a study for Gasnor to investigate the possibility of using LOHC (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier) as an energy carrier for hydrogen on board a bulk ship. The purpose of the overall project is to develop emission free fuel for ship use. 

The study was based on using the LOHC dehydrogenation technology provided by Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies GmbH based in Erlangen, Germany.

The study defined the technical requirements for integration of a LOHC system on board a bulk ship with a typical electric power requirement of 1.0 MWe.

The scope covered:

Alternatives with 2 and 3 MWe units was also discussed.
