Incat a shipbuilding company based in Tasmania, Australia, is making waves in the maritime industry with its upcoming delivery of the world’s largest and longest, lightweight, zero-emissions ferry.
Electric ships emit zero emissions and significantly reduce the amount of pollution in the air and water.
Why do we need electric ships?
In April 2020, the New Zealand government provided NZ $27 million to fund 75% of the construction of two 200-passenger electric ferries to operate in Auckland.
Last year in August, the chairman and the Managing director of Cochin Shipyard Limited commented on the Pilot project of the production of a Hydrogen- fueled electric ship that is expected to roll out somewhere between March and April 2023.
