Next generation zero emission hydrogen vessels unveiled


Designs for $100mn (£75mn) zero emissions autonomous hydrogen vessels have been unveiled by Attollo.

On 9 December, it detailed concepts for three vessels – United Hope, United Destiny and Untied Progress – that will set sail from 2030 and form part of its research and development mission, Project Zero. The ships use hydrogen fuel cells, benefitting from onboard renewable power generation and built-in, state-of-the-art technology from computer vision to AI.

The three vessels are also designed for optimum working conditions, ensuring staff remain health, happy and productive while on board. Smart, ergonomic environments ensure noise and vibrations can be minimised, with personalised cabin settings allowing crew to alter light, sound and temperature, allowing them to get a good night of sleep.

Further facilities on board include a high-tech gym with virtual classes, yoga studios, saunas, a cinema, a games room and an atrium for socialising and optimising natural light. Advanced sensors, a 3D printing capability and hydroponics further increase the ability of the vessels to operate independently.
