The Maritime Classification Company Lloyd’s Register awarded the principal approval (AiP) of methanol to the e1 Marine hydrogen generator. For e1 Marine AiP is an important step and demonstrates the compliance of the technology with several maritime regulations.

The company hopes the AiP will enable the generator to demonstrate its capabilities in several maritime sectors, including ports and tugboats, and offshore and deep-sea vessels. Lloyd’s Registry also confirmed that the technology could receive final approval for inland waterways.

By using e1 Marine’s hydrogen generation technology, fuel cell hydrogen can be safely and cost-effectively generated from methanol and water. It can then be delivered wherever needed. The hydrogen output from fuel cells meets current and relevant ISO standards and is also very suitable for use with fuel cells to generate electricity or to supplement the standard fuel of a conventional engine.

“The maritime industry faces a one-generation challenge in managing the way it uses propulsion energy as part of the global energy transition to net zero carbon,” said Robert Schluter, Managing Director, e1 Marine. “Using e1 Marine technology, with methanol providing a safe and efficient hydrogen transfer medium, allows clean zero-emission fuel cell solutions to be made. With the M-Series Methanol Hydrogen Generator, we make hydrogen a viable fuel option for the marine industry for many different applications.

“Ensuring principled approval from Lloyd’s Register underscores the viability of our technology. It also provides valuable credentials in support of our pilot program so that we can demonstrate how our solution can contribute to reducing carbon emissions from shipping.

“This approval in principle is an important step towards reducing carbon emissions from energy sources for ship operations, helping to shift the experience gained in this technology on land to a potentially wide variety of marine applications,” said Mark Darley, Marine and Offshore. Director, Lloyd’s Register. “We look forward to helping e1 Marine with their technological advances to support the global marine energy transition.”

The development of the system was carried out in cooperation with Element 1 Corp, Ardmore Shipping Corporation and Maritime Partners. E1 Marine hopes to provide a viable path to green energy.
