Norway’s Teco 2030 has revealed it is working with Shell on a project to retrofit tankers with hydrogen power.

The Oslo-listed technology company said the programme also involves Swedish shipowner Ektank and classification society DNV, and will focus on fuel cells.

A Teco 2030 spokesman told TradeWinds the retrofit concept is intended for a chemical and product tanker.

However, it can be applied to several vessel types and their needs, he said.
