Applications Today's maritime applications demand durable, high-performance, and compact systems. Hydrogen at work - safe storage and safe transport. Readily available worldwide, methanol offers far greater hydrogen density for safer, cheaper storage than high-pressure fuel-grade hydrogen. There is no need for expensive, dangerous, high-pressure hydrogen transportation and bunkering. Onboard hydrogen can now be generated using methanol mixed with water - sourced from the very water the vessel sails in. READ MORE Technology Methanol as a Marine fuel Methanol at work – safe storage, safe transport, renewable future. Methanol is an ideal marine transportation fuel. It has a high energy density and is widely available in ports globally. Handling methanol utilizes familiar fuel logistics and safety protocols, and methanol offers safer and cheaper fuel storage than compressed hydrogen. There is no need for expensive, dangerous, high-pressure hydrogen transportation and bunkering. Onboard hydrogen can now be generated using methanol mixed with water – sourced from the very water the vessel sails in. Methanol enriched with water has up to six times the energy density of compressed hydrogen, providing fuel cell power solutions with significantly reduced cost, increased safety, efficiency, and operational range. Methanol has a renewable zero-emission future, just like renewable hydrogen and RNG. Fuel cells are the most energy-efficient device available for extracting power from fuels. The fuel cell is maximally efficient at 60%, thus 37% more efficient than a diesel engine. A fuel cell will directly convert the chemical energy in hydrogen to electricity, with pure water and potentially useful heat as the only byproducts. Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are not only pollution-free, but they can also have more than two times the efficiency of traditional combustion technologies. Marine class fuel cells provide clean zero-emission power with up to a multi-megawatt scale for both prime propulsion and auxiliary power applications. Fuel cells offer marine operators power solutions that meet IMO guidelines – right now. Fuel Cell Power: Clean Zero-Emission Power – (Solves the IMO problem) The missing link to fuel cell power adoption. Hydrogen is challenging and expensive to deliver and store on a ship. It is also difficult, or impossible, to achieve acceptable vessel range from liquified or compressed hydrogen due to onboard storage requirements. These challenges mean that marine operators are facing significant economic, technical, logistical, and range hurdles to introducing hydrogen and fuel cell power technology to their fleet. e1 Marine can solve these challenges. Our methanol to hydrogen generator products are simple, robust, and cost-effective and produce pure fuel cell grade hydrogen anywhere you need it, in real-time, as required by the marine fuel cell power solution. No expensive and volume-intensive high-pressure hydrogen storage is required on the vessel, and the ship is able to achieve target mission ranges before refueling. Solving “The Hydrogen Challenge” for Maritime Applications
- Ports & Terminals | Marine Hydrogen Generators | e1 Marine
Hydrogen on-demand Clean, safe and efficient On-site hydrogen generation provides a bright future as an alternative power source for in-port and terminal electricity needs, as well as a source of hydrogen for on-site refueling. READ MORE Ports & Terminals “Cold ironing” is the practice of a vessel at berth connecting to a source of electricity on the shore to meet their cargo handling and hotel needs. Efforts to reduce vessel port emissions involves requiring ships to shut off diesel engines at berth to reduce the significant emissions produced by diesel engines. Power for hotel and other shiploads is supplied from shore bower (electric grids) or provided by barges or shore-side systems when power is not available at the pier. Grid power is not always available at the quantities required at the pier, and the cost of bringing grid power to the pier can be cost prohibitive and can be upset due to regional blackouts or volatile weather conditions. With growing social, regulatory, and financial demands for greater sustainability, ports are looking to meet their dynamic energy demands in adaptive, flexible, and scalable ways. Cold ironing Hydrogen power for the marine sector: onsite, onboard and on-demand. Learn more about how hydrogen power can work for you. CONTACT US Meeting emission targets With the on-demand production of hydrogen on-site, e1 Marine is solving the traditional hydrogen challenge that comes with expensive and complex transport and storage requirements. On-site hydrogen generators, using methanol as the primary feedstock, can provide as much high quality hydrogen for fuel cells as you need, when you need it. Low cost, flexible, safe and clean. Fuel use and emissions from maritime port sources can be significant. Approximately one-third to one-half of harmful in-port emissions come from vessels auxiliary diesel engines which are run while the vessel is at berth (docked) and requires electrical power for everything from lighting to loading/discharging equipment. While many ports are stating their desire to meet net-zero operations, not many are achieving this goal, or have a clear path to meeting it. Hydrogen matched to fuel cells to produce on-site, on-demand electricity can provide a clear, and realistically attainable path to significant emissions reductions – at the same time as improving power reliability and independence. Clean, Cost Effective and Reliable Shore Power e1 Marine has developed a modularized containerized methanol/fuel cell power solution that can provide zero emission MW scale power, in a flexible mobile container for cold ironing at the pier, on a barge, or lifted onto the vessel itself. Quiet and efficient Fuel cells operating on hydrogen produced from e1 Marine’s methanol to hydrogen generators are a quiet, efficient, environmentally friendly, low or zero emission power source that can readily support port cold ironing applications. Near zero greenhouse gas emissions The e1 Marine system produces zero particulates, zero NOx, zero SOx, and less CO2 than a diesel generator. And if you use renewable methanol, the system produces near zero greenhouse gas emissions. Other Applications With the ability to generate your own electricity in-port you can apply this power to meeting a vast range of applications besides Cold Ironing for berthed ships. Providing electricity for ongoing port operations, BEV vehicles, drayage trucks and powering other port equipment. When the vessels in your fleet return to refuel, our on-site generators make sure high purity fuel-grade e1 Hydrogen is ready and waiting when you need it. On-site hydrogen generation can remove the cost and complexity of expensive electrolyzer production, and remove the issues with manufacturing, transporting, and storing compressed hydrogen. On-Site Hydrogen Refuelling Environmentally Friendly Quiet and reduced emissions with no particulate matter and low CO2 emissions. Lowest delivered cost per kilogram of hydrogen Converts an environmentally friendly, easily handled, readily available, and hydrogen dense feedstock blend of methanol and water into fuel cell grade high-purity hydrogen at the lowest cost per kilogram delivered. Lowest initial cost of equipment An L-Series hydrogen generator can reduce the cost of onsite hydrogen generation by up to 70%. Versatile Solution Scalable hydrogen generation from 50 kg/d to 500 kg/d to allow operators to size the hydrogen produced to meet seasonal needs. Key Advantages For the Refuelling Station Operator Easy Siting, Reliable Operation The compact design with a small footprint allows for flexible installation into existing fuelling locations. Few moving parts means low maintenance and a longer lifetime. Onsite Electricity Production Our technology uses methanol to hydrogen generation to create on-demand electricity. This Methanol-Hydrogen-Electricity pathway provides clean, reliable, economic electricity generation on-site to power your plant and charge battery electric vessels. On-site generation removes reliance on local power grids to provide a secure and offers a reliable electricity source for refrigerated shipping containers and faster vessel recharge turnarounds. Fuel cells have many advantages over diesel engines, including superior fuel efficiency and low maintenance and repair costs. Power output from the fuel cell system can range from 50kW to 2MW, with larger sizes also possible. Methanol is a practical feedstock for the system. It is cheap to produce, available in 88 of the world’s top 100 ports, and has the potential to be 100% renewable. The e1 Marine solution consumes 35% less energy than diesel generators and is thus cost-effective operationally even before considering any new regulations or carbon tax. It can operate on renewable methanol as it becomes available, and when combined with carbon capture (currently under development), it will be a carbon-negative solution.
