ABB TechTalks: Fuel cells for ships – scaling up for wider commercial application

Recorded webinar


Fuel cells are widely considered as one of the most promising solutions for reducing harmful pollutants. Already today, fuel cells can power ships over short distances, and progress is being made to make this technology capable of powering large ocean-going vessels.

Join the conversation with ABB and Ballard Power Systems to find out more on the progress on developing the marine fuel cell as an energy source for ships.


  • Fuel cell technology for ships – from small to large vessels
  • Market drivers
  • Fuel cell application for various vessel types
  • From land-based competence to the high seas
  • Where are we now: fuel cell projects in shipping
  • How fuel cells compare to other low-carbon solutions for ships
