CMB and Tsuneishi are no strangers to one another. Previously, the two companies worked together to develop HydroBingo. This next-generation 80-passenger ferry uses hydrogen as fuel for marine propulsion and has been powering across Japan’s inland seas since the beginning of 2021.
Now, through their new business alliance, CMB and TSUNEISHI aim to develop hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2ICE) technology for the Japanese industrial and marine market. Over the years, CMB has built extensive knowhow in this field, successfully launching various practical applications using dual fuel and monofuel hydrogen engines. This includes the world’s first dual fuel hydrogen diesel engine by BeHydro, a joint venture with Flanders-based engine builder ABC Engines.
