Supporting a consortium of Dutch companies and knowledge institutes, HyFly has contributed to the development of a hydrogen propulsion system for a fast Rib (Rigid hull Inflatable Boat) withe the objective of creating a clean coach boat for sailors. As sailing is a clean sport, the Dutch Sailing Federation as well as the International Sailing Federation have set the goal to only use zero emission support boats from 2030.

A test setup of the propulsion system, including an Intelligent Energy FCM801 Fuel Cell System, was presented in Scheveningen, and the aim is to have a full scale hydrogen powered Rib available for the World Sailing Championships in 2022 which will be held in Scheveningen.
