UK-based AqualisBraemar LOC Group (ABL Group) has been awarded a research and development (R&D) project to develop a green hydrogen production barge under the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC).

ABL Group, including group company Longitude Engineering, will work as part of a consortium with Green Hydrogen Solutions and Poole Harbour Commissioners on the concept development and feasibility study for a moored barge to generate, store, and provide hydrogen to vessels bunkering at the same port. The port will store hydrogen produced via electrolysis using onshore renewables.

Poole harbour will be used as a case study for demonstrating the environmental and commercial viability of the concept.

The CMDC is funded by the UK Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK.
