The objective of the HyCruisE project is the development of a novel fuel cell system with integrated LNG/SynGas reformer and the development of the shipbuilding infrastructure.

Based on the modular integration capability of the fuel cell system, a number of these individual systems will be integrated on board a passenger ship to form a large-scale fuel cell system in the multi-megawatt range, and this large-scale fuel cell system will be tested and validated in real-world applications. In the future, the large-scale fuel cell system will cover the entire hotel operation at sea and in the ship’s port in a hybrid energy network.
