MSC joins Hydrogen Council to improve research and development

MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has joined the Hydrogen Council, a global industry body to foster cross-sector collaboration that will accelerate research and development related to clean hydrogen derived fuels and solutions.

The initiative is part of MSC’s wider approach to decarbonisation, which has already seen it pursue the use of biofuels as a blended fuel and work with others to advance the exploration viability of hydrogen for container shipping.

Bud Darr, Executive Vice President, Maritime Policy & Government Affairs, MSC Group, said, “MSC is actively engaging with a wide range of stakeholders to accelerate the development of clean hydrogen fuels for shipping.

“The future of shipping and decarbonisation will rely on strong partnerships from both the perspective of technology collaboration and procurement.

“There must be a massive injection of energy and capital into R&D efforts to bring alternative fuels and alternative propulsion technologies to the marketplace to decarbonise all industries in the longer term.

“Initiatives such as the Hydrogen Council provide just the right platform to accelerate R&D, as well as to facilitate cross-industry collaboration.

“The future of shipping and decarbonisation will rely on strong partnerships from both the perspective of technology collaboration and procurement.”

The Hydrogen Council is a global CEO-led initiative that brings together leading companies with a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the clean energy transition.

MSC said industry partnerships are needed to accelerate the development of clean hydrogen and fuels derived from it for the benefit of the entire container shipping industry.
