BLUEFISH ZCC zero emission vessel       Unmanned zero emission vessel development platform


INNOVATION - The Bluefish ZCC platform is enabling research for unmanned zero emission yachts. This concept vessel is based on a stable SWASH hull design proposed for development in the UK under license from patent GB2511731. A design like this uses no diesel fuel in normal operation to monitor the oceans autonomously at relatively high speeds of 7-10 knots continuous average, 24/7 and 365 days a year. This is only possible with the unique energy harvesting (wind and solar) system. This vessel could pay for itself in bunker costs every 10 years. Fuel for thought for fleet operators looking for ways to save money and clean up their act!
