At the end of 2020, Enviu’s THRUST program came together with partners Flying Fish, Zepp.Solutions and Watertaxi Rotterdam to from the SWIM consortium. Together, they plan to build the world’s first hydrogen powered water taxi.
The maritime industry has an enormous emissions footprint. This needs to change to save our planet. Our THRUST program has the ambitious dream of a zero-footprint maritime industry fuelled by hydrogen.
There’s just one problem, hydrogen infrastructure is limited because there are no vessels that use it, and regulations must be modified to meet the needs of hydrogen projects that don’t exist… Yet.
Together with their SWIM consortium partners, THRUST IS building this vessel through which they will make the case for hydrogen, overcoming the chicken-and-egg problem that plagues the fuel. They’re demonstrating that a zero-emission maritime future isn’t just ambitious, but possible!
