Genevos, a leader in the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell power systems in the maritime sector becomes a third consecutive trade show award winner, defending its title to the Hydrogen Breakthrough Technology of the Year Award since 2023, and following victory of the Propulsion System of the Year Award alongside collaborator Transfluid, in 2022.

Hosted by the Electric & Hybrid Marine Expo Europe, this eighth edition of the Marine Awards featured a live ceremony that honoured the world’s finest engineers, innovations and products in the electric and hybrid marine arena.

The awards were officiated by a judging panel that boasts some of the world’s leading marine journalists, industry experts and academics, the Electric & Hybrid Marine Awards are among the most sought-after accolades within the marine industry.

Genevos Launches High Power Solution for Clean Maritime1This year Genevos was recognised for their recently launched HPM-250, a high-power 250 kW modular fuel cell power system deployed to meet the growing demands of zero emission coastal and offshore vessels. This development falls in line with the increasing availability of green hydrogen, the strong advances in emissions regulations, and the building environmental pressure to reduce underwater noise, vibration and pollution for the protection of marine life.

The HPM-250 responds directly to fleet requirements of emissions reduction and high reliability by offering a modular, scalable solution for vessels. For longer-range, deep-sea applications, the power module is compatible with methanol and other e-fuel reformers capable of outputting purified hydrogen gas, whilst offering power conversion at higher efficiencies than combustion, thereby reducing operational costs.

Rebecca Sharp, CEO and cofounder of Genevos commented: “As a young company developing disruptive hydrogen power solutions we are honoured to be recognised for our pioneering innovations and for demonstrating how marine fuel cells can significantly reduce the impact of commercial operations across the maritime sector.”
