Hydrogen fluvial shuttle in Nantes

For the first time, a fluvial hydrogen shuttle runs in France. Your stay in Nantes at the Sure Hotel by Best Western Nantes Saint-Herblain may give you the opportunity to connect the Petit-Port Facultés fluvial station to the district of Port-Boyer.

The Navibus on the Erdre

The boat of more than 10 meters long, named Jules-Verne 2, is accessible to passengers only in the afternoon. This navibus is the link between the Petit-Port Facultés fluvial station and the district of Port-Boyer, on the other side of the Erdre.

The Navibus is accessible for disabled people and allows the transport of 16 passengers as well as 6 places for bicycles. The capacity should increase to 25 people thereafter. The Jules Verne 2 is able of reaching the speed of 10 km/h, but will in practice be limited to 8 km/h. A sufficient speed to make the crossing in 2 minutes and save a lot of time.

The Navibus is equipped with electric motors which convert hydrogen stored on board into electricity, which allows it to navigate perfectly quiet and clean, without CO2 emissions. In winter, the heat of the pile will also heat the pilot's cabin!

Produced by Navalu shipyards on behalf of Semitan, it took about 5 years to concretize this unique project in France, to experiment with a new technology unpublished.

From the autumn of 2018, the Jules-Verne 2 will definitely replace the current electric-powered catamaran, the Seagull, which for 20 years has still been the link between Port-Boyer and the universities.
