The SAFeCRAFT project is a 48-month initiative involving 11 partners aimed at integrating and validating Sustainable Alternative Fuels (SAFs) in maritime transport. Coordinated by HYDRUS and including NTUA among its experienced consortium, the project demonstrates SAF technologies addressing fuel distribution, storage, handling, and power conversion. SAFs will be demonstrated physically on a 180,000 DWT Capesize Bulk Carrier, covering all aspects of SAF usage, including fuel distribution, bunkering, storage, handling, and power conversion with a minimum power output of 1.5MW, using H2 stored in either gaseous (CGH2) or liquid (LH2) form. This involves installing a hydrogen generator set (GenSet) to convert stored hydrogen into electrical power for propulsion and auxiliary systems, with comprehensive safety assessments and continuous performance monitoring. Additionally, detailed desktop simulation studies will assess alternative SAF technologies in various maritime scenarios for four different types of oceangoing and short sea shipping vessels, both in newbuilding and retrofit cases. The project emphasizes environmental compliance, risk assessments, and regulatory proposals to support SAF adoption, aiming to achieve FuelEU Maritime 2040 targets by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting SAF usage through robust dissemination and exploitation strategies.
