NYK presented its decarbonisation efforts at the International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Power Generation (ICEPAG) this week,
The event – which took place virtually this year from 14 to 16 September – is hosted annually by the University of California, Irvine and the National Fuel Cell Research Center and is attended by US government officials, university researchers, and related companies.
Kazumasa Taruishi, vice president of NYK Energy Transport USA (NETU), presented virtually on the second day of the event on the theme of ‘Hydrogen for Off-Road Transportation and Freight’.
Under the title of ‘Hydrogen Solutions for Oceangoing Vessels’, Taruishi introduced trends in the shipping industry regarding GHG emission reductions, the status of alternative marine fuels for ships, and the NYK Group’s efforts to promote decarbonisation.
Earlier this month, NYK announced that it is participating in a demonstration project to support the commercialisation of ships using fuel cells, and it is also working with IHI Power Systems and ClassNK to develop the world’s first ammonia-fueled tugboat.
