    Hydrogen fuel cell-based ship propulsion is one of the approaches to reduce greenhouse gases
    emissions from maritime transportation. For such propulsion to be feasible, production and
    transportation modes of hydrogen need to be sustainable in addition to efficient operation of fuel
    cells. Although life cycle assessments and well-to-wake approaches have been used to evaluate
    the performance of hydrogen fuel cells, there is a need for holistic performance framework that
    also incorporates safety in addition to technical, economic and environmental considerations. In
    order to address this, a framework to holistically assess the overall performance of hydrogen fuel
    cell-based ship propulsion is proposed here. The approach proposed in this paper can aid in
    evaluating the performance of hydrogen based marine transportation in addition to identifying
    optimal implementation options.
