The H2 Clipper is a highly disruptive transportation technology designed to operate in the presently unaddressed market space between cargo shipping and air freight. It is the product of applying 21st Century advances in materials, engineering practices and computers to provide freight delivery in two days or less anywhere on the planet at an operating cost that is 70% lower than conventional air freighters and with delivery speed that is 7X to 10X faster than by ship.
The H2 Clipper utilizes the latest in hydrogen fuel cell electric propulsion and modern safety technologies, in conjunction with 100% renewable hydrogen to maintain neutral buoyancy for delivering payloads of over 200 tons (185 metric tonnes) with vertical take-off and landing. This comprehensively patented technology is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the rapidly emerging green hydrogen economy and to assist a broad range of industries, governments and humanitarian causes that require long-haul transport of goods and material to fulfill their respective climate pledge to rapid de-carbonization.
The H2 Clipper is also ideal for rapid, cost-efficient delivery of green hydrogen. Developing a vibrant hydrogen economy requires cost efficient ways to transport large quantities of hydrogen and to dynamically scale as emerging production capacity and market demand for hydrogen respectively grow over the next 30 years. The H2 Clipper is uniquely suited to addressing these needs. It can transport massive quantities of liquified or gaseous hydrogen at a cost per kg that is far lower than traditional truck transport; and is able to scale up through making additional daily trips until the recurring volume of hydrogen being transported justifies investing in the fixed cost of a pipeline or establishing a dedicated supertanker route, at which time the H2 Clipper can simply shift its services to another emerging production site and/or destination.
Using the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform, and assisted by our design services partner, XD Innovation (XDI), H2 Clipper has now completed the research and concept design phases. This work has been performed with entirely private funding. Technical details respecting the innovative design, engineering and operating characteristics, detailed financial forecasts and other non-public information concerning the Company are available to qualified investors and prospective strategic allies under a written non-disclosure agreement.
