Japanese engine manufacturers Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), Yanmar Power Technology, and Japan Engine Corporation have entered into an agreement to form a new joint venture company with the goal of developing hydrogen-fueled engines for marine transport.

The new company will be named HyEng Corporation and will operate out of JEC’s headquarters factory in Akashi City.

The joint venture will also focus on the development of international standards and rules for hydrogen fuel supply systems, integration of hydrogen fuel supply systems, and maintenance and operation of hydrogen fuel engine demonstration facilities.
