Why is the SOFC Module Tested on the Inclination Pod?

Fuel cell power systems are clearly superior to combustion engines in terms of performance, economy and, not least, ecology. They are significantly more efficient in the utilization of the resources, suitable for usage with various fuels, cleaner in emissions and very quiet in operations. Therefore, are potentially great solution for replacement of internal combustion engines in marine transportation.
