Project: HyDIME (Hydrogen Diesel Injection in a Marine Environment)

Timescale: 2018 – 2020

Funder: Innovate UK

Funding: £430,332

Project overview: HyDIME is focussed on the use of hydrogen as a fuel in marine transport and will see the design and integration of a hydrogen/diesel dual fuel conversion system on a commercial ferry operating between Kirkwall and Shapinsay. The project will also gain the necessary marine licences and regulatory approvals for hydrogen to be used as a fuel in a marine environment which will have a significant impact on future hydrogen marine projects across the rest of the UK.

Partners:

  • Ferguson Marine (lead partner)
  • ULEMCo
  • Lloyd’s Register
  • HSSMI
  • Orkney Islands Council

EMEC’s role: The project will use the hydrogen produced by EMEC on the ferry which will power the auxiliary systems of the vessel
