FPS Maas Sails to Shipyard for Retrofit

By 1st September 2022News, Newsletter

We’ve arrived! It’s now time to make shipping history!

Celebrations are in order this week as our inland vessel, the FPS Maas, made her final voyage on diesel and an internal combustion engine from Belgium to Rotterdam.

The container ship arrived at the Holland Shipyards Group shipyard in Werkendam on Monday. And finally, after years of hard work and preparation, the retrofit to a zero-emission vessel can begin!

Over the coming months, the engine will be removed, and a hydrogen and fuel cell propulsion system will be installed.

   

We proudly share this moment with our dedicated FPS team, project partners: BCTN Network of Inland Terminals, Holland Shipyards Group, Koedood Marine Group, Nedstack Fuel Cell Technology, Kooiman Marine Group, Air Liquide, and all other suppliers and collaborators.

This project is supported by grant funding from the Interreg North Sea Region Programme (Zero Emission Ports North Sea – ZEM Ports NS), Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), Port of Rotterdam and Expertise- en InnovatieCentrum Binnenvaart.
