A HYDROGEN-fuel catamaran built by Cheetah Marine has demonstrated the potential of zero CO2 technology in the marine industry.

The 9.95m catamaran, designed and built at Cheetah’s workshops on the Isle of Wight features a Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine (HICE). The Honda outboard works in the same way as traditional petrol engine except it burns hydrogen and produces harmless water vapour as the only emission.
