Feasibility study to remove major obstacles to zero-emission hovercraft operations

The ZEHPHyr (Zero Emission Hydrogen Powered Hovercraft) project is part of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2 (CMDC2), funded by the Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Innovate UK. ZEHPHyr is an 8-month feasibility study which aims to de-risk the key barriers to zero-emission hovercraft operations. These barriers include operational barriers (socio-economics, crew training, regulations, life cycle impact), technical barriers (hydrogen-based propulsion system) and availability of hydrogen infrastructure (production, storage, distribution, bunkering, integration with wider infrastructure/mobility). Aquatera Atlántico provided project management support to Aquatera Ltd.
