HT-PEM fuel cell as an energy system on ocean-going passenger ships

Pa-X-ell 2 focuses on the integration of high-temperature (HT)-PEM fuel cells on ocean-going passenger ships as part of a decentralised energy grid and a hybrid energy system incorporating energy storage. This includes the conceptualisation, development and design of subsystems as well as their test operation and demonstration. For both energy concepts, the development of a new generation of fuel cells and their production processes is necessary. The test operation of the experimental systems on passenger ships is a relevant factor in the development of the sustainable energy concepts.
