The Transship II project is the largest retrofit of its kind to-date and will see the Prince Madog retrofitted with a hydrogen electric hybrid propulsion system that will enable zero to low emission operation by 2025.
Martin Nuernberg, Managing Director of O.S. Energy (UK), said, "OS Energy is thrilled to be leading this ground-breaking project assembling a strong consortium of industry leading innovators to push the boundaries of traditional maritime propulsion systems and paving the way for a cleaner and more sustainable future for the shipping industry.
"The Transship II project is a testament to our commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility and will demonstrate the potential of green technology application in the maritime industry."
The retrofit work, which will take up to two years, is set to begin in April. Once complete, the Prince Madog will receive hydrogen from the Holyhead Hydrogen Hub on Anglesey, North Wales.
