The Basque Maritime Cluster has organized an event at Itsas Museum in Bilbao, to present the results of the strategic projects HYSHORE and H2OCEAN, financed by the Department of Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment of the Basque Government, through the HAZITEK Program.
The HYSHORE and H2OCEAN project consortia have worked for the last three years on the development of different technologies related to hydrogen, and the leaders of both projects BOSLAN and Astilleros de Murueta have made the presentations, along with contributions from the rest of the partners.

Ingeteam has conceptually designed the onboard electrical management and distribution solution, based on a DC distribution system that integrates the different stages of energy conversion that allow renewable sources to be integrated with the ship’s control and propulsion systems.

We congratulate the company H2SITE, part of the project consortium, because it has validated the world’s first on-board ammonia cracking system, generating high-purity hydrogen coupled with a pem fuel cell.

The H2OCEAN project at the Europort fair in Rotterdam (Netherlands), held on November 7, 8, 9 and 10.

The project consortium met on September 14 at the facilities of the Oliver Design company, to continue working on the development of solutions to improve the sustainability and decarbonization of the ship through hydrogen.

The H2OCEAN Project has as its main objective the research into less mature technologies that allow the industries of the Basque Country to position themselves as a place of reference at a national and international level in relation to the sustainable ship of the future based fundamentally on hydrogen technology.

The World Maritime Week Exhibition was held from March 21-23, an event that brought together the entire maritime sector at the Bilbao Exhibition Center. It is a meeting that hosts four international congresses in parallel: naval (Sinaval), fishing (Eurofishing), port (Futureport) and offshore renewable energy. The event had an extensive conference programme, a large section dedicated to networking and an exhibition area in which the Basque Maritime Forum has had its own stand where it has disseminated the different projects in which it participates. The H2OCEAN project has been present at this exhibition, since the FMV stand has acted as an information point for the project, making known the objectives and achievements reached to date to the companies visiting the fair that have shown interest in it.

Last Friday, October 14, a follow-up meeting of the H2OCEAN project was held, in which the consortium of companies and agents of the RVCTI reviewed its progress, and the work plan for the coming months.

During the week of September 6 to 9, the Basque Maritime Forum has participated in the SMM fair in Hamburg together with 29 associated companies, 12 of them as exhibitors.

Some members of the project have been exhibiting at the WindEurope Annual Event 2022 fair, which has been held at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre on April 5, 6 and 7.
