  Is this hydrogen-powered vessel the superyacht of the future? Aqua, a new cutting-edge vessel concept, looks set to propel the superyacht industry into a more eco-friendly direction. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Created in collaboration with Lateral Naval Architects, Aqua measures 112 meters and will be powered entirely by liquid hydrogen and fuel-cell technology -- which essentially means water will be its only emission.

The hydrogen fuel cell is a thing of interest for the US government and its agencies. Following US Army collaboration with General Motors on the Chevy Colorado ZH2 fuel cell pickup, it appears there's more intrigue around the alternative powertrain.

This Tuesday, the US Department of Energy and the US Army revealed a new collaborative effort to develop a purpose-built disaster relief vehicle with a fuel cell powertrain. While fuel cells offer their own benefits in the form of zero emissions, the Army and DoE underscored a few other important points.

A fuel cell vehicle (FCV) or fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) is a type of electric vehicle which uses a fuel cell , instead of a battery, or in combination with a battery or supercapacitor

Fuel cells can provide a source of power, heat and even water for up to 72 hours. In the middle of a disaster zone, such benefits could revolutionize the way emergency crews and first responders tackle a situation. The US pointed to recent California wildfires and Hurricane Dorian's aftermath in the Bahamas as two examples where this kind of vehicle would serve well.

While the collaborative effort is new, the DoE has focused on hydrogen fuel cells longer. The department previously rolled out its [email protected] Initiative, which focuses on creating reliable and affordable hydrogen production, transport and storage. Hydrogen powers fuel cells, which in turn creates electricity like an electric car. The added benefits as a power station of sorts come with the territory, which the Army was very interested in to improve situations in the battlefield. Fuel cells also produce a faint heat signature, which can make the vehicles far less detectable during more covert operations compared to an internal-combustion engine.

Watch an Olympian run in a bubble full of hydrogen car emissions

  Watch an Olympian run in a bubble full of hydrogen car emissions Earlier this year, Hyundai launched the Nexo: a hydrogen fuel cell-powered SUV that only emits water and oxygen. Even though the vehicle promises an environmentally friendly transportation option, its adoption is hampered by the lack of proper fuel cell infrastructure. So, how does one advertise a clean vehicle with a pretty severe limitation? Apparently, by getting an Olympic swimmer to run inside a bubble attached to a Nexo's exhaust toHyundai España's YouTube page has posted a commercial (spotted by Motor1) showing Olympic swimmer and brand ambassador Mireia Belmonte running on a treadmill inside a sealed bubble. The video clearly shows that a Nexo's exhaust is connected to the structure.

While no photos of specific details of the truck were provided, the fuel cell emergency vehicle does have an appropriate name: H2Rescue. The Army Corps of Engineers along with various partners will begin issuing a requests for proposals this fall before work starts getting underway. Pictured above is GM's Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure (SURUS), which the automaker debuted as a potential fuel cell platform of the future. Perhaps we'll see the automaker take another crack at a fuel cell emergency vehicle.

Following engineering and development, H2Rescue will go through a feasibility study. The DoE and Army also plan for a joint demonstration to make sure and showcase how an emissions-free emergency vehicle isn't only eco-conscious, but better suits those who work in the field.
