A UK-based developer of a liquid hydrogen bunkering facility for fuelling zero-emission vessels has won a government grant to help develop a unit for rapid deployment to ports around the world.

Unitrove Innovation has been given a £30,000 ($39,500) Transport Research and Innovation Grant (TRIG), awarded by the UK’s Department for Transport in partnership with Connected Places Catapult.

The funds will be used to help further develop a commercial version of the small-scale portable facility it unveiled at COP26 in Glasgow last November.
