The “Navibus Jules Vernes 2” is now on daily duty, in Nantes, France. Carrying passengers between the two shores on the Erdre river, this boat is a silent and fully zero emission solution. Symbio designed the complete propulsion system, thanks to two redundant fuel cell systems of its own developed by the team in Grenoble. The boat is fully operational, always on, and needs refueling only once a week at the hydrogen refueling station on the river’s bank.
