DCNS, Partners See Future in Hydrogen Fuel

What if, in the near future, fishing boats replaced the diesel engine by a propulsion mode reducing both their energy bills and their polluting emissions, while contributing to the improvement of their crews’ working conditions?

That is the goal of FILHyPyNE, a major naval hydrogen technology project for multi-species fishery backed by the Mission Hydrogène des Pays de la Loire, in association with DCNS.

A project in 3 stages

The stages of the project are intended to validate the technical, economic, environmental and social performance of the hydrogen-fuel cell technology in actual professional operating conditions. In this context, DCNS has committed to the coordination of the propulsion system design studies, the production of the system and its onshore qualification. The group will subsequently be involved in the installation of the system in the fishing boat demonstrator and its qualification in harbour and sea trials. The third stage, coordinated by the fishermen themselves, will consist of a tour of France’s ports to have the demonstrator validated by its future users.

Project basics

The purpose of the FILHyPyNE project is to design a multipurpose 12-metre coastal fishing boat (creelfishing boat, gillnetter, etc.) propelled by a hydrogen-fuel cell system.

The project brings together a cluster of participants and partners from industry, research, education, training, economics and regional development.
