First Hydrogen Ferry to Cruise Waters of New York Harbor
Large ships are generally not very eco-friendly. Even though they transport several people at a time, they emit tons of emissions, given that they usually run on marine diesel oil or bunker fuel, which is the cheapest and dirtiest fuel oil available.
But now tourists in NYC visiting the Statue of Liberty can go check out the famous NYC hot spot while going completely green. A new four-way hybrid ferry, that uses a combination of diesel, hydrogen, solar and wind power, to generate 1,400 horsepower will transport visitors to The Statue Of Liberty starting next April.
The 600 passenger Hornblower Hybrid will typically be propelled by hydrogen fuel cells, but there will also be a back-up diesel engine on board for “additional energy needs.”
