Posted by Michelle Howard

CMB and Tsuneishi Facilities & Craft (TFC) has announced that both companies will work together to build the world's first passenger ferry powered by a dual fuel hydrogen-diesel internal combustion main engine.

After receiving the necessary regulatory approval, the ship will be built at TFC's facilities in Onomichi, Japan and is expected to be delivered in 2021.

By combining TFC's state-of-the-art shipbuilding capabilities and CMB Technologies' extensive knowhow in marine hydrogen systems, both parties hope to build a revolutionary ship that will be a milestone in the journey towards zero carbon emission shipping.

This new development also supports Japan's vision to become a leading hydrogen society by 2050.
