Hydrogen Ferries

On Tuesday 7th April 2020, OREF hosted a very successful online event on the topic of Hydrogen Ferries. In light of the current Covid-19 restrictions, we wanted to ensure continued engagement with our members and also keep the series of presentations we have developed on track.

Over 40 people participated in the event on Hydrogen vessel development globally and more specifically in Orkney. A presentation was delivered by David Hibbert, The marine superintendent at Orkney ferries, who has a wealth of knowledge on Hydrogen shipping and a second presentation was delivered by Trond Stromgren, an Ocean Energy Innovator based in Norway, who gave an update on the situation with regard marine Hydrogen developments in Norway which was also extremely interesting.

Thanks should go to Frances, Stuart and Jen who all helped behind the scenes to pull this event together.

We are in the process of arranging another online event to take place on Tuesday 5th May and will issue full details in due course.
