Knowledge for Sustainable Development - Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Technology to Reduce Health and Climate Impacts of Ship Emissions

Joakim Pagels from the University of Lund (ULUND) will present how a novel propulsion system powered by a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) combined with Li-Ion batteries can contribute to reduce health and climate impacts of cruise ship emissions. The presentation will be given at the Knowledge for Sustainable Development Conference (2nd May 2022) in Lund. SOFC fuel cells hybridized by batteries is a technology approach with applications in marine industry that are currently examined by the NAUTILUS project.

On-Board Energy System of the Future

Have you ever heard about the ambitious targets of emissions cuts in maritime sector imposed by IMO and the EU’s Green Deal? Have you ever wondered what will in the future replace heavy fuel oil (HFO) as an energy source for large ships? Do you know what the 21st century propulsion system of a cruise ship should look like?

Challenges of SOFCs System Application in Marine Power Plant

Berend van Veldhuizen from Delft University of Technology (TUD) will present the NAUTILUS project under the Fuel Cells section at the 7th World Maritime Technology Conference 2022 (26th – 28th April 2022) in Denmark.

A Digital Twin Used for Simulation of the Temperature Spread within a Lithium-Ion Battery System

Holistic simulation models running in parallel to a battery system as so-called digital twins have drawn increasing interest of researchers in recent years, especially for large-scale and investment-intensive automotive, marine or stationary systems.
