Collaborative and Knowledge-building Project


Develop technology, models and analyses of powertrains, infrastructure, security and sustainability, to enable a 50 % emissions reduction from fishing and aquaculture vessels by 2030

Collaborative and Knowledge-building Project

Expected results

  • Skills, models and tools for the development of safe, durable and reliable hydrogen-hybrid systems with optimal energy efficiency
  • A comprehensive plan for hydrogen bunkering and battery charging infrastructure along the Norwegian coastline
  • Map out the market potential, societal risk and environmental consequences of the green transition in the fishery and aquaculture industry

About the collaborative and knowledge-building project

The collaborative and knowledge-building project KSP ZeroKyst will employ an interdisciplinary and holistic methodology to find ways to phase in hydrogen-electric coastal vessels, to reach the goal of 50 % emissions reduction by 2030. It will also develop knowledge that will put Norway at the forefront of technology development.

The work will be disseminated through the active involvement of reference groups, and will cover five scientific work packages:

  • Technology and expertise for reliable hydrogen-electric powertrain
  • Bunkering and charging solutions at sea
  • Comprehensive energy infrastructure on shore
  • Analysis of environmental consequences, security and preparedness
  • Market potential in the future's zero-emission coastline

Subproject lead

The collaborative and knowledge-building project is led by SINTEF, a world-leading research institute with expertise in the fields of maritime technology and energy supply.
