Fuel-Cell Ferry Moved to AAM Yard


Wilton, Connecticut-based SW/TCH Maritime has switched fabrication of the hydrogen fuel-cell powered ferry Water-Go-Round from the Bay Ship & Yacht yard at Alameda, California to the All American Marine (AAM) yard at Bellingham, Washington following a number of construction delays, with the uncompleted 70-foot aluminum vessel moved between the two facilities by barge.

SW/TCH, which is funding completion of the vessel with private capital after the California Air Resources Board invested $3 million to help launche the project, has not announced an entry-to-service date for the experimental craft yet.
