In a bold attempt to cut down exhaust emissions to zero, a new canal cruise boat Nemo H2 has joined the fleet operated by Rederij Lovers, Amsterdam. The canal boat is similar to conventionally powered boats with panoramic windows but is of course, silent and produces zero emissions. Main propulsion is provided by a single 75 kW Voith azimuth electric thruster in the stern, with an 11 kW electric bow thruster in the bow. Electric power is produced from twin 30 kW PEM fuel cells with a 70 kWh Li-phosphate battery. The fuel cells run on hydrogen stored in six cylinders at a pressure of 35 MPa with a total capacity of 24 kg of gas. Maximum speed is 8.6 kts and autonomy at a mean speed of seven kts is nine hours.

Every two years there is a High Speed Boat Operations conference (HSBO 2010) with the participants covering a wide area of expertise from manufacturers, naval architects, operators and the medical profession – all concerned with high speed vessels. Improvements to hull design and engine performance permits these craft to go at ever increasing speeds. There has been much recent research on the subject of injuries and shock mitigation concerned with the operation of high speed craft. Adopting the traditional standing can result in broken bones or spinal injuries. A better solution, assuming good visibility is the use of special seats with built in shock absorbers.
