Autodesk Involved in Hydrogen Equipped Vessel

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Icelandic Hydrogen used Autodesk Inventor software from Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK), to design a complete on-board hydrogen energy system that powers the auxiliary engine for one of Iceland's largest whale-watching vessels, enabling it to generate the electricity on board with clean, sustainable energy rather than oil. For its example of how ships can reduce their environmental impact, the Iceland-based hydrogen fuel cell company has been named the Autodesk Inventor of the Month for October 2009.

Most shipping vessels are propelled exclusively by oil. Since hydrogen can be made from water alone -- and water vapor is its only by-product when burned -- hydrogen fuel cells represent a more environmentally friendly option than traditional combustion engines.

As part of the SMART-H2 project managed by the public-private company Icelandic New Energy Ltd, Icelandic Hydrogen developed its hydrogen energy system for The Elding -- a 130-ton, 150-passenger ship that serves as the flagship vessel for Iceland's largest whale-watching operation.
