World’s first hydrogen-powered drone ship for marine conservation with Proton Motor fuel cell
The world’s first zero-emission hydrogen-powered drone ship will be unveiled today at the World Climate Change Conference(www.ukcop26.org) in Glasgow. London-based ACUA Ocean has commissioned Proton Motor to develop a fuel cell. In 2009, for example, the cleantech specialist produced the climate-neutral propulsion solution for the first fuel cell passenger ferry in the Port of Hamburg. On the hydrogen wave, it has also already delivered an order to Europe’s largest shipbuilding group from Trieste and will publish a.s.a.p. details of a new H2 hybrid system for marine applications.
In partnership with the University of Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, the ACUA Ocean project is designed to monitor and protect marine assets and offshore infrastructure. Funding grants of £1.05 million through the UK Department for Transport’s Clean Maritime Demonstration competition position the UK at the forefront of green technologies and maritime decarbonisation.
