FTXT provides hydrogen power system solutions! The main drawings of China's first offshore hydrogen-powered traffic boat have passed CCS review
Font size

Recently, the main design drawings of "Lihu Lake Future", the first hydrogen-powered vessel in China, have formally passed the review and approval procedure of the China Classification Society (CCS) Wuhan Specification Research Institute. Additional marks will also be awarded to the vessel such as CCS "fuel cell-powered 1", "coastal seagoing vessel " and "high-speed vessel".

The vessel is developed and designed by the Marine Engineering College of Dalian Maritime University, Haida Qingneng Ship (Dalian) Co., Ltd., and the Ship Power carbon neutrality International Joint Research Center. FTXT Energy provided hydrogen power system solutions and customized product development.  After completion and delivery, it will become the first hydrogen powered marine vessel and aluminum alloy ship to be classified into CCS in China.

The 20.5 meters long and 5.2 meters wide "Lihu Lake Future" traffic boat with an all-aluminum alloy structure and a rated crew capacity of 20, is equipped with FTXT two sets of 110kW marine hydrogen fuel cell systems as the main power source. At present, FTXT’s marine fuel cell system has completed the CCS technical data review and got the CCS system approval. The highest efficiency of the system is 58.8% with an output voltage of 450 V ~ 750V, and the protection level of the shell is IP67. The vessel has characteristics such as corrosion resistance, high humidity resistance, high reliability, and other performance advantages when operating in inland waters and marine environments.  More importantly, it has independent intellectual property rights of the whole system, and 100% of components and parts are made in China. Compared with other mainstream products, the comprehensive performance index of the vessel reaches the leading level.

The core modules of the fuel cell system are designed in accordance with the vessel development and design standards and relevant test requirements and are made of highly corrosion-resistant and humidity-resistant stagnant materials. It adopts a "superposition" design, which has the advantages of high integration, high energy-efficient, low noise, no emission, etc. At the same time, it meets IEC 62283 explosion-proof safety requirements and can operate under the condition of multi-angle pitch and tilt. By adopting an adaptive control algorithm, this vessel can respond to real-time environmental requirements and intelligent control. Platform-based and modular product development can be expanded to a variety of vessel types such as yachts, ferries, high-speed vessels, crew traffic vessels, pilot boats, mooring operation vessels, anchoring operation vessels, etc.
