H2-Industries and Nobiskrug, the German boat builder, are collaborating on an all-electric yacht using LOHC (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier), with an expected completion date in the first quarter of 2019. Once finished, the vessel is expected to have a range of 1,000 nautical miles with a cruising speed of 10 knots per hour. H2-Industries CEO and founder Michael Stusch answered some questions about the new yacht for CleanTechnica . What length and weight will the yacht be? 29m (90ft) and 90 tons. What is the price? $9 million USD. Can you explain what LOHC (Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier) is? The LOHC technology is based on Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers, an oil-like organic substance that binds hydrogen chemically. The LOHC storage tank is loaded with the produced hydrogen and can be stored or transported at ambient temperature and pressure. To recover the energy, the LOHC storage tank is unloaded and the hydrogen, which is once again gaseous, can be used by a fuel cell. How will it be sto red onboard? In multiple tanks where one tank is always empty to separate the LOHC+ from the LOHC-. What is the cost of the fuel? The costs depend on the power […]
