What is deemed the world’s first passenger ship powered by hydrogen fuel cells has quietly been plying the waters of Germany’s city of Hamburg now since 2009. The result of a collaborative project between the European Union and a coalition of other partners public and private to develop cleaner small cruise ships for navigating rivers in Europe, the FCS Alsterwasser is said to now have clocked about 1900 hours, or over 7000 miles, since it has been in service. The ship, reported Maritime Propulsion (hat tip to Green Optimistic), is owned by ATG (Alster-Touristik GmbH) and used to take up to 100 passengers on the river Alster and the “inner-city waterways” of Hamburg, where it is based.
