Energy Observer Developments (EODev) introduces its REXH2onboard HYNOVA Yachts’ first prototype
Energy Observer Developments (EODev) will present at the next Cannes Yachting Festival from September 8 to 13, 2020 its REXH2 (Range Extender Hydrogen) solution, integrated for the first time in a vessel other than Energy Observer: a 40-foot open boat developed with HYNOVA Yachts, the first production electro-hydrogen tender to be launched on the market.
The REXH2 is a modular solution developed around Toyota’s latest-generation fuel cell, making silent maritime and river mobility without emissions of CO2 and fine particles possible. EODev’s tailor-made application ensures the propulsion and/or operation of on-board systems using hydrogen. It has been tested in real conditions aboard Energy Observer over more than 7,000 nautical miles.
The HYNOVA 40 is a 12m boat designed by Chloé Zaied, founder and managing director of HYNOVA Yachts, which can be used as a day-boat or superyacht tender. With a capacity of 12 passengers, it is the first pleasure boat equipped with the REXH2, a zero-emissions, silent, and hydrogen-electric hybrid technology intended to be manufactured in series.
