MSC the Swiss based shipping group, Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, and gas firm Snam are collaborating on a feasibility study for a hydrogen-powered cruise ship, which would be the world’s first. In the joint statement released on July 26, the three companies outlined the logistical and technological concerns they will look at over for the next year to see if the project should move forward. 

Hydrogen is being utilized in shipping in order to cut emissions while also encouraging investment to increase production. 

This month, the European Union (EU) unveiled a climate change package that includes a tax on formerly untaxed carbon-heavy transport fuel. 

In transport sectors that are difficult to electrify, hydrogen is seen as having an essential role to play, however, the cost must come down first. 

Every year, maritime travel accounts for 3% of global CO2 emissions. To attain net-zero emission targets, hydrogen can be used, stated Snam CEO Marco Alvera.
