Big Sea Change - Hydrogen Ferries

  Sea Change: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Ferry For San Francisco Bay                                           Source:  All American Marine 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 shipy
