NYK unveiled a new concept of ship without emissions called NYK Super Eco Ship 2050. The shipping company reported that the power needed to operate the ship has been reduced by 70% by remodeling the hull to reduce water friction, reduce weight , introduce fuel cells for electric propulsion and rely on other highly efficient propulsion devices. Also, instead of using fossil fuels, the ship would be powered by solar energy and hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources, all of which would lead to a reduction in CO2 by 100% and, therefore, would result in a vessel of zero emissions. The concept vessel has been designed as a ro-ro vessel in cooperation with MTI and Elomatic, an engineering and consulting company based in Finland.
