Proton Power Systems plc (AIM: PPS), the designer, developer and producer of fuel cells and fuel cell electric hybrid systems with a zero-carbon footprint, announces that it has agreed with Fincantieri, one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups, to provide a 38 kW fourth-generation fuel cell, to validate it as a pilot project for one of their vessels.

The order includes a feasibility study for the integration into the first ship and other potential collaborations.

Dr. Nahab, CEO of Proton, commented: “This is excellent news, with Proton having been the world’s first fuel cell system provider that has powered a ferry in Hamburg for 6 years between 2009 and 2014 with a 50 kW fuel cell system, this is a great opportunity to enter the maritime market at the shipbuilding stage.”
