Steel cut for the first green hydrogen container ship

The steel cutting ceremony for the first in a series of two 500-TEU vessels took place at Cochin Shipyard in India.

Once delivered, the 3.2-megawatt fuel cells, 135-metre long duo will serve the Oslo-Rotterdam crossing, sailing on green hydrogen and thus sparing the environment some 25 thousand tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

The pair was ordered by Ocean Infinity, scheduled for delivery in 2025 and operated by Samskip under a long-term charter.

Are Grathen, Regional Director - Norway & Sweden Multimodal, Samskip, highlighted:

[...] The SeaShuttle will provide a great green corridor and it's really inspiring to see the leadership and commitment of our customers who have already booked space on this service. Now we go from planning to building!
