Abstract : The invention relates to a fuel cell system for providing electrical energy for an underwater vehicle. A fuel cell module is placed within a containment vessel and hydrogen and oxygen are supplied from tanks placed outside the containment vessel. The hydrogen and oxygen are passed through a fuel cell module to generate electricity for an underwater vehicle. The oxygen flowing from the fuel cell module is vented overboard and the hydrogen-product water flowing from the hydrogen reaction chamber is condensed and the water is separated from the hydrogen and stored in the hydrogen tank.
