Inocel showcases its hydrogen boat at the Energy Boat Challenge in Monaco

Mike Horn was on the Rock to present the Poséidon: an ultra-high-performance zero-emission boat. It was unveiled as part of the Energy Boat Challenge.

He wanted to do the Dakar Rally in a hydrogen buggy. This project eventually led to the creation of Inocel (a manufacturer of high-power fuel cells) and a project for sport. At the finish line, the adventurer became the honorary captain of a very high-performance boat, named Poséidon. The boat features an Inocel hydrogen fuel cell. This laboratory boat, a runabout designed by Tullio Abatte, retains all the characteristics of its internal combustion counterpart: same speed, power, weight, recharge time and range. The difference is that there are no carbon emissions or noise pollution.

This innovative boat has been developed in partnership with GEKO, which are experts in integrating hydrogen solutions into propulsion chains. Fitted with Inocel fuel cells – “unique in terms of their power, efficiency, compactness and responsiveness, with no equivalent on the market”, says the manufacturer – the Poséidon considerably reduces the need for batteries. This marks a paradigm shift in hydrogen mobility.

Designed to match the performance of internal combustion engines without compromise, this racing boat embodies the future of carbon-free maritime transport, combining exceptional performance with respect for the environment.
