doesn't sound very practical 

Aqua's technology system will rely on two 28-ton vacuum isolated tanks, which are to be stored at temperatures as low as -253 C.
The liquified hydrogen is converted into electrical energy by proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells.
a lot bull$hit when they say a ship is "launched" 
but actually mean "a proposal has been released"

Buying hydrogen is nearly as hard as plutonium in New Zealand at present. Hopefully that changes soon.

think big

 

turn taranaki into a natural gas - hydrogen conversion plant

 

source product can also be methane burps + farts from cows! - but how to capture it

 

https://en.wikipedia...ogen_production

 

what could possibly go wrong

 

The core Think Big projects included the construction of the Mobil synthetic-petrol plant at Motunui, the complementary expansion of the oil refinery at Marsden Point near Whangarei, and the building of a stand-alone plant at Waitara to produce methanol for export. Motunui converted natural gas from the off-shore Maui field to methanol, which it then converted to petrol on-site. Declining oil prices rendered this process uneconomic and saw a reduction in the production of synthetic fuel, however the industry still remained at large due to prior investment. New Zealand would abandon the manufacturing of synthetic petrol in February 1997, allowing the plant to switch the focus to methanol.[3].

I'm thinking whoever designed that grew up watching Star Trek...

Once again, hydrogen is not an energy supply but an energy storage medium.

Absolutely BP, like a battery or a tank of diesel.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
