$100 million ‘next generation’ zero emission hydrogen vessels
British marine operator Attollo has unveiled designs for $100 million zero emissions autonomous hydrogen vessels fitted with ultramodern technology and crew facilities. The futuristic concepts are part of a multi-generational Research & Development mission known as ‘Project Zero’ – with the vessels named after the three pillars of the project: Hope, Destiny and Progress.
Project Zero’s autonomous ships utilise zero emission hydrogen fuel cells, benefitting from onboard renewable power generation (solar and wind power) and built-in state-of-the-art technology from computer vision to AI.
All three vessels – United Hope, United Destiny and United Progress – are designed for optimum working conditions, ensuring staff remain healthy, happy, and productive whilst on board. Vessels are set to hit waters by 2030.
Attollo’s vessel design has been funded with help of government support and assistance from V&A Dundee ‘Design Accelerator’ for low carbon technologies. CENEX transport consultancy conducted vital research into the zero-emissions propulsion technologies.
