Collaboration is also a key aspect of Yanmar's efforts. Yanmar Power Technology Co., Ltd. has joined forces with Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and Japan Engine Corporation to develop hydrogen engine technology specifically for marine applications. This partnership showcases Yanmar's commitment to pushing boundaries and driving sustainable change.

On World Ocean Day and beyond, Yanmar remains dedicated to its mission of protecting and preserving our oceans. Through ongoing innovation, collaboration, and sustainable practices, Yanmar is leading the way towards a healthier and more sustainable marine environment.
