Torqeedo is collaborating with Proton Motor Fuel Cell to integrate hydrogen fuel cell charging into Torqeedo’s electric propulsion systems.

The German companies will work together on a marine hydrogen hybrid building kit integrating Torqeedo’s Deep Blue battery-electric drive systems and Proton Motor’s fuel cell technology, Torqeedo said in a statement. The project received funding from the Bavarian government for 2021 through 2024.

“The hydrogen-electric Deep Blue Hybrid system will provide a practical and cost-effective solution that will allow for fast fueling, overcome speed and range limitations, and will meet the most restrictive emission requirements on environmentally sensitive waterways or in urban areas,” said Jochen Czabke, senior vice president product development and global service for Torqeedo.

The system will provide propulsion power ranges from 50 to 200 kW and fuel cell power of 30 to 120 kW, and will have flexible options for hydrogen storage, the statement said.
