About Us

Our mission is to decarbonize the shipping industry. Since replacing ships isn't as straightforward as other transportation modes, we aim to assist the current fleet in reducing its reliance on fossil fuels. Our hydrogen plugin represents the initial step towards hydrogen-powered shipping and is ready for use as early as tomorrow!
