Hanwha Aerospaces Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Ships Receive AIP Certification

Hanwha Aerospace has achieved a significant milestone in the maritime industry by obtaining Approval In Principle (AIP) certification for its hydrogen fuel cells for ships from the Korean Register of Shipping.

The announcement was made on the 3rd, following a certification ceremony held on May 30 at the Pangyo R&D Center. The event was attended by key figures, including Moon Seung-hak, head of Hanwha Aerospace’s Electric Propulsion System Division, and Kim Dae-heon, head of the Korean Register of Shipping’s Research Division.

AIP is a crucial certification procedure that verifies the stability of technology application and compliance with international regulations from the basic design stage when manufacturing ships and materials with new technology.

This certification ensures that the technology is feasible and safe for further development and implementation. With the acquisition of AIP certification, Hanwha Aerospace has certified the stability of its hydrogen fuel cells, which are based on polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC).

Moon Seung-hak expressed the company’s commitment to leading marine decarbonization efforts. “We will take the lead in marine decarbonization through continuous research and development (R&D) to respond to the expanding market for carbon-free fuels such as hydrogen,” he stated
