CMB and Tsuneishi join forces to build a hydrogen-powered ferry


By combining TFCís state-of-the-art shipbuilding capabilities and CMB Technologiesí extensive knowhow in marine hydrogen systems, both parties hope to build a revolutionary ship that will be a milestone in the journey towards zero carbon emission shipping.

This new development also supports Japanís vision to become a leading hydrogen society by 2050. After receiving the necessary regulatory approval, the ship will be built at TFCís facilities in Onomichi, Japan and is expected to be delivered in 2021.

Tsuneishi Facilities & Craft Co., Ltd. is engaged in the building and repair of aluminium alloy vessels, general construction, and lifeboat maintenance and inspection. In our pursuit of safety and comfort for marine traffic and lifestyles through these businesses, we challenge ourselves to take on new initiatives that will enable people to live pleasantly, in a manner that gives them a sense of reassurance toward the future.
