LEMURIA is an innovative floating energy and transportation infrastructure designed to convert seawater into green hydrogen, providing a sustainable refueling option for next-generation ships. This floating hydrogen station will play a pivotal role in reducing emissions and dependence on fossil fuels, with Phase 1 (FHP-III) set to launch in six months.
