Starting this week in Monaco, EODev is presenting, in collaboration with the Hynova shipyard, its mass-produced electro-hydrogen boat.
“[The] 12m tender will enable visits by sea to the natural park of the Calanques de Cassis, a protected zone forbidden to diesel engines,” said Jérémie Lagarrigue, EODev CEO.
“It is a preview, taking place on September 22 and 23, because of the cancellations of the Cannes and Monaco boat shows, to show the integration of our technology on the boat that will displayed on the terrace of the third floor of the Yacht Club de Monaco.”
“By the end of the year, once the test period is over and the certification is completed, we will be able to invite the public to discover it and try it.”
“This will be followed by the participation in the Tech4Islands competition organised by French Polynesia to develop on-site solutions contributing to carbon-free energy autonomy. EODev is among the 12 finalists.”
Meanwhile, Energy Observer Developments (EODev) has presented its land-based hydrogen power generator and maritime range extender in operation on the industrial site of its partner and manufacturer Eneria.
The products developed by the French start-up meet the objectives of France’s hydrogen plan, unveiled by the French government last week.
The GEH2® hydrogen power generator can produce 80,000 watts of electricity continuously with no pollution, CO2 or fine particle emissions.
Assembled and tested by Eneria, with a footprint of barely four cubic meters and a limited weight, the GEH2® is equipped with the latest generation of Toyota fuel cell (PAC) and is the most compact and most efficient hydrogen power generator on the market in terms of power delivered, EODev said.
The development carried out by EODev’s teams allows to reach powers up to 2MVA when the generators are stacked.
This modularity makes the GEH2® the ideal vector for customised hydrogen solutions for autonomous energy supply.
After working on the project for many months, EODev’s engineers were thrilled to see it in action.
Romain Jallon, Director of Operations and one of the “serial inventors” making up the team, said, “The energy transition is right here in front of us. All the ingredients are there, the technologies are working, reliable, mature, and are becoming economically viable.”
“Now, to speed up that process, the only thing we need to do is to accelerate the deployment, and to make sure that the early adopters we meet, become most users. That’s what is happening today.”
