Renewable Hydrogen for Inland Waterway Emission Reduction

The aim of the RH2IWER project is create a solid basis for the acceleration of hydrogen fuel cell powered inland vessels, a basis on which the shipping industry can significantly reduce their environmental footprint and remove emissions from their entire fleet in the future. Within the project six commercially operated vessels will be demonstrated. These vessels are of varying lengths and types ranging from 86 meters till 135 meters; container, bulk and tanker vessels. Focus will be standardisation of containerised fuel cell and hydrogen solutions.

RH2IWER will run from the 1st of March 2023 till the 31st of August 2027. With a total budget of 20.5 million Euro of which 15 million Euro is funding from the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking.
