Hydrogen Ferry in San Francisco - A First

  Green Zero Emissions Commuting                                             Source:  Sea Change Green Waves of Energy in San Francisco Bay In a first of its kind in global public transportation, a hydrogen powered ferry is being prepared to launch on San Francisco Bay this summer.  The Sea Change ferry is totally propelled by hydrogen fuel cells and emits only water and heat. Unlike the rest of the maritime industry of tankers, ocean liners, pleasure boats, tugs and more that spew noxious diesel fuel pollution, the hydrogen ferry is totally emissions free and does not pollute the environment.  The developers say it is clean, efficient and makes sense economically on scale - meaning it has the potential to be a profitable and growing commercial business operation.  Non-Polluting Maritime Operations  The Sea Change is the beginning of green waves of energy on the water.  The ferry is 70 feet long, can accommodate 75 passengers and will make multiple stops along the San Francisco waterfr

US' 1st Hydrogen Ferry - Big Sea Change

  Sea Change: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Ferry For San Francisco Bay                   Source:  All American Marine & SWITCH Maritime US Maritime Industry Starts to Transition from Fossil Fuels to Clean Propulsion The US' first hydrogen fuel cell ferry has just been launched.  The 70 foot Sea Change is a 75 passenger, electric ferry powered by hydrogen fuel cells that will carry passengers on San Francisco Bay.  It was built by All American Marine as a prototype that can be used to develop zero emissions, hydrogen vessels for use in the US and abroad.  The launch of Sea Change is important because it represents a big step by the US maritime industry to transition from highly polluting fossil fuels to cleaner methods of propulsion in the water. Expected to Be Operational in 2021 Sea Change is currently undergoing sea trials.  It should be fully operational and start ferrying passengers across San Francisco Bay later this year.  All American Marine, a Bellingham, Washington-based shipyar
