South Korea-based aluminium shipbuilder Vinssen has unveiled a new vessel that will feature a hydrogen electric propulsion system.

The prototype, named Hydrogenia, is the first in a planned series of 50 vessels that will be developed by Vinssen in fulfilment of the South Korean government's goal of making low-carbon maritime transport more widespread by 2030.

The vessels will each be powered by a Danfoss Editron electric drivetrain and subsystem.
