Hydrogen fuel cells have the potential to provide emission-free power for marine vessels without the need for backup generators or shore charging facilities and have been deployed in a number of applications since the turn of the century. Now, Japanese firm Yanmar Power Technology Co, has announced it is developing a fuel cell propulsion system for boats, based on Toyota’s automotive technology.
Rapid advances in battery technology are changing the marine industry, but can electric propulsion systems be commercially viable for large vessel types and transoceanic routes?
German marine propulsion systems manufacturer Schottel’s EcoPeller rudderpropeller will be installed in a vessel retrofit project for the first time.

ELMAR seminar and demo boats workshop “Electric driven ships and technologies, ships and boats retrofit possibilities”, Klaipeda (LT), 3 December 2019
The meeting was opened by the representative of Klaipeda University, Mr. Vasilij Djackov, who also presented the findings of the report “Sales and supplier market analysis in Lithuania”.
The international water e-mobility conference took place in Yacht Klub Polski in Szczecin on 16 and 17 October 2019. The conference participants were presented with the outcomes of analyses of sales and supply markets for Germany, Poland and Lithuania (and other Baltic States). It was an opportunity to discuss the market potentials, conditions and niches for e-mobility on water in different countries of the Baltic Sea.
We have a pleasure to present the analysis of the market conditions for the development of the supply-chain of the electric water mobility. The market report constitutes one of the important milestones of ELMAR project, assumed in the project plan. Market analyses for other partner countries – Poland and Lithuania are currently in the process of elaboration.
