- SWITCH Maritime and All American Marine announce the launch and operational trials of the Sea Change
- Sea Change, a hydrogen fuel cell-powered, electric-drive ferry, will operate in the California Bay Area and be the first hydrogen fuel cell vessel in the US
All American Marine Inc. (AAM) and the vessel owner SWITCH Maritime (SWITCH) are pleased to announce the launch and operational trials of Sea Change, a 70-foot, 75-passenger zero-emissions, hydrogen fuel cell-powered, an electric-drive ferry that will operate in the California Bay Area says an article on Businesswire.
Hydrogen fuel cell vessel
This will be the first hydrogen fuel cell vessel in the US, representing a monumental step in the US maritime industry’s transition to a sustainable future. The ferry was developed and constructed to demonstrate a pathway to commercialization for zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell marine technologies.
Zero-carbon ship technology
While still working on permitting hydrogen fuel systems for maritime vessels with the US Coast Guard, the completed ferry will exhibit the viability of this zero-carbon ship propulsion technology for the commercial and regulatory communities.
