China´s first 500kw hydrogen fuel powered ship starts operation

Beijing, Mar 22 (Prensa Latina) China's first service ship powered by a 500-kilowatt hydrogen fuel cell has been put into operation in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, according to China Three Gorges Corporation.

The service ship, Three Gorges hydrogen ship No.1, uses homegrown hydrogen fuel cells and a lithium battery system and will be used for transportation, patrol and emergency in the Three Gorges reservoir area.

The vessel’s maximum speed reaches 28 kilometers per hour, and it has a maximum cruise range of 200 kilometers. It also makes less noise and is more cost-efficient compared with traditional oil-fueled ships.

The ship has been certified by the China Classification Society, according to Wang Zhen, director of the system integration office at China State Shipbuilding Corporation.

The China State Shipbuilding Corporation and China Yangtze Power Corporation built the ship under the China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG). The construction of the vessel began on May 17, 2022.

The country has rolled out a slew of policies and guidance to accelerate the development of the ship industry fueled by renewable energy, a part of the green effort in achieving China’s goal of achieving carbon peaking in 2030 and carbon neutrality in 2050.
