HYDROGEN ON BOARD

IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE, FOR YOU

ALL THE ENERGY YOU WANT NOW AVAILABLE

Energy always available, without noise, smells and vibrations and with zero environmental impact.

Only substances released: oxygen and distilled water.

Developed by H2Boat, Energy Pack makes use of a hydrogen system to accumulate energy for both engine and on-board utilities

THE ADVANTAGES OF HYDROGEN: ENTER THE BLUE FUTURE

VITAL COMFORT

The production, storage and use of hydrogen to generate electricity takes place in absolute silence, without any vibration or emission of smelling or polluting substances.

All the energy you need without any side effects.

On-board well-being guaranteed.

SAFE

Hydrogen is stored at low pressure.

In the event of breakage or accidents, the atoms are slowly released into the environment and dispersed in the air, without the risk of explosions or fires.

IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE

The system is available in five distinct versions, from 1 to 60 kW, specially fitted with a modular design to deliver the amount of energy you need.

The Energy Packs arrive on site ready to be installed in the engine room, just like any onboard accessory.

ZERO-IMPACT ENERGY PRODUCTION

The Energy Packs by H2boat can be integrated into a hybrid system using energy from fossil sources or work only with renewable sources to leave no trace of their passage, without CO2 or other greenhouse gas emissions.

FROM WATER TO WATER

An electrolyzer, powered by the electricity produced from a renewable source (idrogeneratore, (hydro-generator, photovoltaic panel or wind generator), splits water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Oxygen is released into the air, while hydrogen is stored, at low pressure, inside metal hydrides (MH), which act as a sort of sponge for this chemical element.

This way, all the hydrogen we need is efficiently stored and immediately available to operate the engine or on-board utilities

SPACE-EFFICIENT

No batteries needed.

Contrary to battery accumulators, MH systems take up very little space, are totalmente riciclabili, totally recyclable, do not require expensive parts, processing and disposal.

Moreover, their capacity is guaranteed over time.

When it is necessary to have electricity, just activate the fuel cell. It will draw hydrogen from MH and transform it into electric current to start the electric motor.

H2Boat’s launch product is the Energy Pack, a storage system specially designed for the enegry produced from renewable sources, ideal for sailing boats.

The H2Boat Energy Pack uses hydrogen as an energy vector to make recreational boats, especially sailboats, autonomous in terms of on-board electricity.

The system consists of three parts: a fuel cell,, capable of producing electricity by consuming hydrogen; a metal hydride storage, capable of storing large quantities of hydrogen safely, at low temperature and low pressure;an electrolyzer, capable of producing hydrogen from water using the excess energy produced by any renewable sources installed on board during navigation or from a power supply on the quay.

nikyta h2BOAT

H2Boat has patented a system to integrate the MH in the keel of a sailboat or in the bilge ballast of a motor yacht, thus exploiting their weight and preserving comfort on board.

The technology was applied on a sailing Phoenix 24, H2boat Nikyta.
The Energy Pack prototype was installed in her compact internal space.

After some sea trials, Nikyta will make a tour of Italy from Ventimiglia to Trieste using only hydrogen as a means of energy storage.

In the meantime, it is possible to visit Nikyta and see the works completed firsthand. Genoa Boat Show from October 1-6 2020 at booth SY16 (Marina Sailing World Square)
