CEN Workshop E-Shyips on ‘Pre-normative plan for H2 applications to passenger ships - Guidelines for H2 passenger ships from the early stage of design’

The goal of this CEN/WS is the development of a CWA which provides a set of design and installation recommendations for the arrangement and installation of propulsion systems, using hydrogen as fuel, on passenger ships. 

No new safety requirements will be defined in the CWA, but these recommendations can be used for a risk assessment, leveraging on existing standards (e.g. HAZOP, HAZID, FMECA), to be applicable already from the early design phases and discriminating based on the presence of passengers on board. These recommendations can be useful for a risk assessment (to be carried out in a second stage), but the risk assessment is not the focus of this CWA.


The document leverages on the results of the experiments carried out within the EU e-SHyIPS project.


Ultimately the document is expected to benefit the industry also in terms of knowledge sharing and policy makers for the update of relevant documents.


The proposer of this CEN Workshop is the E-shyips project funded by Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (now Clean Hydrogen Partnership) under Grant agreement n. 101007226.


Potential interested stakeholders to be involved in this CEN Workshop are: academic and research bodies, maritime and hydrogen industry, non-governmental organizations and standardization bodies.


The virtual kick-off meeting will be held on July 17th 2024. People interested to participate in the kick-off meeting can register using the form below.


All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft Project Plan using the commenting form below, to the Workshop secretary, Fabrizio TACCA, at fabrizio.tacca@uni.com by July 14th 2024
