Under the new partnership agreement, SinoHyKey (SHK) will supply the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) – a crucial part of TECO 2030’s hydrogen fuel cell system – to enable decarbonization within the maritime transportation industry.
The duo anticipates that the newly established collaboration will continue if both parties can reach key development milestones successfully.
“SinoHyKey is very excited to partner with TECO 2030 to demonstrate the potential of the hydrogen fuel cell in marine and other heavy-duty applications – not just in Europe but across the globe. SHK MEAs destined for the TECO 2030 project employ a state-of-the-art design that offers superb power density, durability and cost-efficiency,” explained SinoHyKey Technology Company’s CEO, Dr Yuquan Zou.
“I am pleased to announce our supplier agreement with SinoHyKey in Vancouver and looking forward to a great partnership for many years,” said Tore Enger, group CEO of TECO 2030. “Together, we will be able to provide zero-emissions energy solutions to the world.”
TECO 2030 is also working with Shell and several other partners on the HyEkoTank project, which aims to retrofit a product tanker with 2.4MW fuel cells in 2024 to enable zero-emissions operations in port and up to a 100% reduction in emissions. To date, the project has received €5m (US$5.3m) in funding from Horizon Europe.
