Overview

Background & Policy context

The key barriers for the implementation of hydrogen in the inland waterway transport (IWT) sector are the lack of HRS and the scarcity of hydrogen-powered vessels. Without the necessary refuelling infrastructure, companies are reluctant to invest in such vessels.

Objectives

The overall objective of the Action is therefore to stimulate HRS infrastructure through a supply chain based intervention (costs and benefit assessment) and kick-start investments in hydrogen-supply infrastructure.

Methodology

These are to be achieved through four specific objectives:

  • assessing the scenarios and framework conditions related to safety and regulatory requirements (Activity 1)
  • designing the optimal layout and assessing its costs and benefits (Activity 2)
  • assessing the optimal locations in the ports of Rotterdam, Duisburg and Neuss/Düsseldorf/Köln (Activity 3)
  • disseminating the results for the rollout of HRS and feeding them into alternative fuel policy and plans (Activity 4)

Project management (Activity 5) is included to deliver the Action on time and within budget.
