Therefore,  FPS Rijn and FPS Waal will join FPS Maas on the same journey to become zero-emissions vessels.

Previously, FPS replaced the existing internal combustion engines with hydrogen fuel cell technology on its vessel Maas. The retrofit process also included removing both the main engine and gearbox and installing a new modular propulsion system.

This will be used as a reference for other similar inland container vessels, the company said.

The 110-metre vessel recently received a recommendation from Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR) to use hydrogen.
