The current trend in the seagoing vessels sector involves replacing conventional sources of energy with greener alternatives.
The NAUTILUS project is developing an integrated maritime energy system. The core of this system consists of a highly efficient Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) coupled with a battery, using LNG as fuel for large passenger ships.
The NAUTILUS project is devoted to developing and testing a novel energy system for large passenger ships based on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) hybridized with a battery. SOFC systems have the potential to reduce emissions from seagoing vessels, aligning with the recently updated strategy of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) regarding GHG reduction targets.
Adam Kristensson, from the Department of Physics specializing in Environmental engineering and Climate research at Lund University (ULUND), will present a NAUTILUS-related poster at the Joint TAP and SE Conference, scheduled for September 25 to September 27, 2023, in Gothenburg, Sweden.
