A complete and turnkey implemetation
Hylias (HYdrogen for Land, Integrated renewables And Sea), is a hydrogen-electric passenger vessel.
It is the first hydrogen-electric vessel of this power in France.
It will sail between the fifty islands in the Gulf of Morbihan, which are currently served by conventional oil-fired boats in the Natural Park area.
It is a pusher craft equipped with batteries and a fuel cell (500kW/3300 kWh of hydrogen per day) that sails on the stretch of the river Seine.
This boat is “zero emission” and silent and can move barges of up to 2800 tonnes between the eleven Parisian ports of the group specialising in building materials.
Its aim is to make the transport of materials (concrete, sand and other gravel) more ecological.
Race for Water is a huge solar boat with a hydrogen production unit on board.
It is powered by renewable energy, starting with photovoltaic solar energy. This energy provides 62% of the boat’s energy consumption. When the sun is not shining, the wind and hydrogen take over.
The hydrogen produced and stored on the boat is used to power the engine and drive the propeller thanks to a fuel cell.
Swiss Hydrogen – 2018
GreenHarbour is a zero-emission cold ironing barge. It supplies electric power to ships in harbour (at berth or at anchor), thanks to its shipboard supply of green hydrogen, coupled with a multi-MW FC (fuel cell) system.
It also provides several optional port services (collection of blackwater and greywater, scrubber waste, etc.).
The electric shuttle Navibus Passeur Erdre allows pedestrians and cyclists to cross the river Erdre.
In order to offer a quality service to passengers, the boat needed to be renewed. Semitan seized this opportunity to experiment with hydrogen propulsion on an electric river boat in public service certified to carry passengers.
The ambition is to demonstrate the interest of hydrogen in the modernisation of French river transport.
