ABB Marine issued a video, focusing on the use of diesel engine in the shipping industry, which is an efficient way of converting fuel energy into mechanical energy and propulsion, but now could be replaced by other technology solutions, such as battery and fuel cell systems.

The threats that the traditional diesel engine confronts are the new regulations that are aligned with the climate change, as well as the new innovative solutions that are adopted by the industry.

Batteries are replacing engines or are used as auxiliary systems and their cost and performance is improving continuously, driving a wider adoption onboard. Fuel cells, a chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen producing energy, will come to play an increasingly important role, as it reaches up to 70% efficiency.
