Ponant touts new ship design with zero environmental impact

Tuesday, 02 Aug, 2022 0

PONANT is working on a new eco-design cruise ship that it says will have no impact on the environment when sailing.

It will be the line’s 14th ship.

The aim is for a ship that can combine several non-fossil fuel energy sources, including wind propulsion, by integrating ‘technological bricks.’

The scope of work is expected to be ready by the end of 2022

The goal is to have the ship up and running by 2025.

“We’ve been working on a new whole life cycle concept ship to reduce ecological footprint. We’re assessing all the potential impacts,” said Mathieu Petiteau, New Building and R&D Director.

“A total new generation ship needs to be designed and we intend to deliver it.”

New biofuels are being assessed for the ship, like green hydrogen, as well as the possibilities for wind and water propulsion.

PONANT is contributing to various European research projects to develop and test these technologies.
