First Flying Boat Powered By Hydrogen Launched In UAE

SeaBubbles unveiled X-Pearl as the UAE’s first flying boat powered by hydrogen at the Dubai International Boat Show.The new boat represents the future of green mobility by combining the sensations of flying and sailing for zero-wave, zero-noise, and zero-emission navigation.

Its hydrogen fuel cell generates the supply of electricity for the internal systems and propulsion pods and a battery pack supports it during flight to balance power needs. This hybridization has the advantage of emitting only water and aims at relying on renewable energy sources.
