Mediterranean and Caribbean passenger ferry operator Baleària will be building its first electric passenger and cargo ferry for the Ibiza-Formentera route, it said at the FITUR tourism exhibition on Wednesday (19 January).
The vessel, which will also function as a test laboratory for the use of green hydrogen, is being built at the Armón de Vigo shipyard; it will improve air quality in the ports and surroundings, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% compared to the rest of the ships that operate this route.
“This ship represents an important leap and for us it has an emotional component, since despite being small and simple, it aspires to be the most sustainable of the fleet, as it is electric and incorporates hydrogen technology on an experimental basis,” highlighted the President of Baleària Adolfo Utor.
Green Hydrogen Laboratory
A 100 KW compressed hydrogen fuel cell, amongst the largest capacity currently in existence, will be installed on the ferry to carry out a pilot trial to power electrical consumption on board.
“Our goal is to use this ship as a small-scale test laboratory to learn about this fuel and apply this knowledge in the long term, when a more mature and stable storage system than the current compressed hydrogen is expected to be available,” said Utor.
Baleària is a participant of the European Green Hysland project, whose objective is to turn Mallorca into the first green hydrogen hub in southwestern Europe.
