Dear ISHY partners

We want to inform you about the latest ISHY updates

Final Conference ISHY

On Tuesday 21 March the Final Conference ISHY took place in Dordrecht, The
Netherlands. The Final Conference served as an opportunity for the different
partners of ISHY to reflect on the achievements of the Interreg 2 Seas ISHY
project and to celebrate hard work and dedication of all the project partners.
Different partners from France, England, The Netherlands and Belgium
investigated and realized concrete pilots in order to support the low carbon
propulsion of shipping in the 2 seas-region by implementing hydrogen-based

The Final Conference was the culmination of all the hard work of the various
partners. The partner gathered at a boat of Zilvermeeuw for the conference.
The following topics were discussed:

Hydrogen fuel cell systems for maritime applications, by Zepp Solutions;
Multimode hybrid development, by Hybrid Marine;
How are we going to achieve our goal of 75% CO2 reduction?, by
H2 bunkering station in Port Oostende, by Parkwind;
Challenges to overcome to realise Hybrid maritime propulsion integration
for inland and offshore applications, by GeoAqua and YES;
Tools and methods systems developed by the academic partners to
support ports and shipowners to adopt new propulsion systems, by Solent
Followed by a panel discussion and network moment.
Special thanks to the following partners that worked together within a cross
border framework under the impulse of Port Oostende:
Industrial and maritime partners: Zilvermeeuw, Hybrid Marine, Zepp
Solutions, Lloyds Register and Parkwind
Regional development and port authorities: Port Oostende, Impuls
Knowledge institutions: Solent University, Waterstofnet, TU Delft,
Polytechnical University Hauts-de-France and Vives

ISHY (Implementation of Ship Hybridisation) aims at the development, testing and validation of technical
tools and business models for the implementation of hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell technologies in vessels
and ports, in order to increase the adoption of low carbon technology in the shipping and port sectors.
Therefore, existing vessels will be retrofitted, new vessels will be built as well as appropriate bunkering
