Harnessing the sun, the wind and the sea with E/S Orcelle

May 9, 2011

The E/S Orcelle does not release any emissions into the atmosphere or into the ocean. It uses renewable energy sources and fuel cells to generate the energy required to power the vessel. Its highly advanced design provides optimum cargo capacity to transport cars and other goods around the world more efficiently.

The E/S Orcelle represents our vision for zero-emission car carrying. The idea combines fuel cells, wind, solar and wave power to propel the vessel, that will need no oil or ballast water. A car-carrier like this will never be built in its entirety but we hope to see some of the elements in future generation of vessels.

The E/S Orcelle is named after the Irrawaddy dolphin, or Orcelle in French. WWF, the global conservation organisation includes the dolphin, which resembles the beluga whale, among the world's critically endangered species. The abbreviation, E/S, stands for Environmentally sound Ship.
