Quayside power generator wins Orcelle Award
We are excited to announce the winner of Orcelle Award 2021 - Element Resources.
"I’m very happy to announce Element Resources as the winner of the 2021 Orcelle Award at The Ocean Exchange. Element Resources have a solution concept for generating green power on the quayside for vessels at berth, says VP Global Sustainability, Roger Strevens.
The concept involves a containerised hydrogen fuel cell stack that would provide ports with a way to avoid grid power infrastructure and availability issues.
Like so many innovators, Element Resources still have significant hurdles to clear before becoming market-ready, but the core of what they are doing has a huge potential and the $100,000 Orcelle Award could provide them that vital boost needed to fulfill their potential.
