Yanmar Power Technology, a subsidiary of Yanmar Holdings, have become the first company in Japan to receive Approval in Principle (AiP) for their ‘Maritime Hydrogen Fuel Cell System’ from Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK), a prominent Japanese maritime association.

The primary objective of this system is to advance the use of zero-emission ships in the maritime sector, effectively eliminating emissions such as CO2, NOX, SOX, PM and others. The design emphasises ease of installation with a configuration that seamlessly integrates key auxiliary components like gas valve units into the system housing. Additionally, the system’s capability for parallel connection of multiple units and its flexibility in adjusting the number of installed modules in its housing allow it to cater to diverse ship output requirements.

Yanmar PT have proposed this new system to a range of vessels, including passenger ships, workboats and cargo ships, that operate in coastal areas with access to hydrogen infrastructure.
