On 09-11-2012 I paid homage to those who had lost their lives 11 years earlier on the Eastern part of the U. S. due to terrorist attacks. I also stated that I was looking forward to the building of the European Hydrogen Highway system and the European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012. The EU H2 road tour is now approximately 2/3 completed.
The European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012 is currently in England visiting Bristol, Swindon and London. Bristol is home to the Hydrogenesis which is the UK’s first hydrogen powered ferryboat. The official launch of the 12 person H2 ferryboat will be later this month.
According to the Managing Director of Auriga Energy Ltd., Jas Singh, “The innovative and ground breaking Hydrogenesis ferry will bring a new era of quiet and emission free operations to the Bristol Harbour and add to Bristol’s industrial heritage. This showcase is an exciting glimpse into the future of hydrogen powered integrated road and marine transport with Bristol at the leading edge.”
To date, the EU Hydrogen Road Tour 2012 has traveled to Hamburg, Hannover, Bolzano, Paris and Cardiff. After the short stint in Great Britain, the final leg of the journey will be to Copenhagen where the Tour members will celebrate the successful event.
