The Zero Cat will use a hydrogen generator to produce hydrogen from methanol on board. The system will benefit from green power produced by the yacht’s solar power system, with solar cells built into the yacht’s entire bodywork. The fuel cell system will generate clean energy with zero emissions. The energy will be used for both the electric propulsion and hotel loads.
