Event: MarRI-UK Hydrogen Highway project – automatic berthing and mooring processes test demonstration

You are invited to join MarRI-UK on the 20th of March, 2024 to view a test demonstration by the University of Strathclyde which will showcase the offshore hydrogen transportation solution as part of our Hydrogen Highway project led by the Port of London Authority (PLA) in collaboration with O.S. Energy.


As part of the DfT funded Hydrogen Highway project led by PLA, part of the work is to present a viable solution for the future roadmap of maritime hydrogen transportation. Building upon the findings of WP3-Hydrogen Production System, which proposed containerised compressed hydrogen transportation via container ships, O.S Energy has designed an 80-meter-long autonomous container ship capable of carrying 120 standard TEU containers.

The Demonstration

During the demonstration, attendees will have the opportunity to observe detailed models of both the offshore platform and the transporting container ship. These models are representative of the innovative design elements incorporated into the full-scale platform and ship, including the modularized design of the offshore hydrogen system, ship propulsion system, and ship autonomous system. Notably, the demonstration will feature the implementation of automatic berthing and mooring operations within the wave tank of the Kelvin Hydrodynamic Laboratory.

How to Attend

The test demonstration shall take place on the morning of the 20th of March 2024 and will be held at the Kelvin Hyrodynamic Laboratory. If you would wish to attend please get in contact with us via info@marri-uk.org to secure a ticket for what will be a very exciting morning.
