21m Catamaran Passenger Ferry

IC17212

The United States’ first hydrogen fuel cell powered ferry is on its way, proving that airborne ship pollution can be eliminated while retaining vessel range and speed. The vessel, named "Sea Change", produces zero emissions with its only by-product being water and will be operating in the San Francisco Bay area.

This project was supported by the "California Climate Investments" (CCI) program.
