British Start-Up Attempts To Bring Steam Power Back To Shipping

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Splash 247.

These are the introductory p[aragraphs.

A British start-up called Steamology is trying to bring steam power back to shipping. However, the key difference for this 21st century invention is that instead of steam generated by burning coal, Steamology’s steam is generated by burning pure oxygen and hydrogen, split from water.

The company has just won UK government innovation funding of £400,000 ($496,000) to trial the technology initially for trains but with a longer term view of getting it onboard ships.

There’s also a good graphic, which explains how the technology works.
