ACTA Hidro Hydrogen Boat Launched at Star European Championship

It may not be a Coast Guard cutter, Navy frigate or one of the many large powerboats used by drug runners in the Florida keys or off the coast of California, but this week the ACTA Hidro hydrogen boat was launched at the Star European Championship in Viareggio, Italy (the Tuscany region).

The Star European Championship is a serious sailing competition that the ACTA Hidro had no part in. The ACTA Hidro was simply being shown as a demonstration of the company’s latest hydrogen technology.

In February 2010 I had talked about ACTA creating a hydrogen generator and fuel cell for marine applications. The ACTA Hidro is a demonstration of this technology for the recreational boating marketplace.

A full commercial launch of the hydrogen-powered marine vessel is expected at the Genoa Boat Show in October 2010. Check out the Italian video of this unique vessel.
