GL approval for MSN H2 storage system...

New Products

It’s for a fuel-cell installation.

JANUARY 2011

Hoogezand, Holland-based MSN (Marine Service Noord), the yacht engine-room installation specialist, has received GL approval for a H2 (hydrogen gas) storage system for a fuel-cell propulsion unit aboard a new passenger vessel.
MSN has built the propulsion installation of the Nemo H2 based on two PEM fuel-cell systems of 35kW. The storage unit consists of six connected synthetic barrels with a total capacity of 1.3m3 (35ft3) and an in-house developed safety flow-control assembly. The use of synthetic barrels reduces weight and prevents a chemical reaction of metal-ions in the fuel cell. These barrels have to be able to resist high pressures. The pressure for the test was 485bar; the working pressure will be 350bar.
