MASK Architects presents the 85-meter hydrogen-powered ONYX H2-BO 85, a superyacht that combines luxury and eco-consciousness – thereby making it a testament to what’s possible when innovation and environmental responsibility converge.
“This groundbreaking vessel ingeniously combines hydrogen production through electrolysis with hydroelectric turbines, providing a unique solution for sustainable power generation during short cruising distances while minimizing environmental impact,” explains MASK Architects.
Τhis superyacht will harness the energy-efficient process of electrolysis through hydroelectric turbines, creating “zero-emissions,” and reducing the yacht’s ecological footprint during sailing.
Her hydroelectric turbines efficiently capture the kinetic energy of the surrounding water to create clean energy by generating and storing hydrogen onboard.
This eliminates the need for large fuel reserves and provides easily accessible energy during low-speed sailing or anchoring.
ONYX H2-BO 85’s interior combines opulent and lavish lounge areas to create an aura of refined sophistication.
Renowned interior designers have painstakingly curated every detail, combining sumptuous materials, cutting-edge technology, and sustainable elements to create an ambiance that is both inviting and eco-conscious.
The hydrogen gas from this process forms at the negative electrode, known as the cathode, and is separated from the oxygen gas at the positive electrode, known as the anode.
The hydrogen is then stored in suitable containers or tanks.
As hydrogen is a highly flammable gas, safety measures such as adequate ventilation, leak detection systems, and safety protocols have been put into place to ensure the hydrogen is handled and stored safely.
The produced hydrogen can then be used as a fuel source for various purposes on the yacht, such as powering engines, generators, or fuel cells.
It can also be stored as a backup power source.
