TECO 2030 has launched a new product concept for its containerized fuel cells, the TECO 2030 Power Barge.
The TECO2030 Power Barge is a concept for a floating zero-emission power supply for powering ships at berth and at anchor in ports with hydrogen infrastructure.
The solution comprises TECO 2030 fuel cell modules, batteries, power electronics, safety- and automation systems, hydrogen storage, and a refuelling solution. The concept forms a scalable multimegawatt solution for electricity production for shore power from hydrogen.
The concept allows major benefits in terms of increased safety, reduced operational costs, reduced land area use, and increased flexibility while also eliminating harmful emissions.
Overall, the concept is in line with the European Commission’s proposal launched on September 14th, 2022, to make over 5 billion euros available for European transport infrastructure projects. The funding will support projects across all EU Member States along the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), a rail network, inland waterways, ports, and roads connecting Europe.
The TECO 2030 Fuel Cell Generator is a complete hydrogen-powered genset that can replace both on- and offshore fossil-fueled generators for shore power solutions, strengthening of local grids, emergency generators for data centres and more.
Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030, said, “The floating and mobile solution for shore power in locations with the insufficient electrical grid and for ships at anchor will become a game changer in reducing and eliminating harmful emissions along our coastlines and in ports.”
