The Port of Antwerp ordered the construction of a tugboat powered by hydrogen. The ship, called «Hydrotug» will be the first of its kind to operate in the world. The ship will burn hydrogen in combination with diesel in engines that comply with the Euro V standard of the European Union, leading to «ultra-low» emissions. The tugboat will be built by the Compagnie Maritime Belge (CMB), a pioneer in the field of hydrogen energy for maritime transport.
