The HYDROTUG 1 consists of two BeHydro V12 dual fuel medium speed engines that can run on both hydrogen and traditional fuel. With this innovation, Port of Antwerp-Bruges strives to integrate the most environmentally-friendly technologies available. The HYDROTUG 1 can store 415kg of compressed hydrogen in 6 stillages installed on deck and eliminates the emission's equivalent of 350 cars.
The HYDROTUG 1 is part of an integrated greening programme for the Port of Antwerp-Bruges fleet and is being deployed as an important step in the transition to a climate-neutral port by 2050. With the HYDROTUG 1, CMB.TECH confirms its international pioneering role in the transition to ships powered by environmentally friendly fuel.
