Japanese NGO Peace Boat has commissioned Spanish naval architecture firm Oliver Design to build a high-range eco-friendly cruise ship. The Ecoship cruise liner will feature all the latest innovations in renewable energy use and is destined to become a benchmark for sustainability in maritime transport.
Peace Boat has signed a letter of intent with the Finnish shipbuilding company Arctech Helsinki Shipyard Inc., in order to construct the Ecoship, the world’s greenest cruise ship. The agreement was announced during Nor-Shipping Conference, on May 30th.
Peace Boat has announced it will be showcasing its plans for Ecoship, a unique future-proof concept cruise vessel, at Nor-Shipping 2017 exhibition Hall A, dedicated to the new industry concept of Disruptive Sustainability. The Japanese-based organization works to promote peace, human rights, sustainable development and respect for the environment.
Dr. Amory Lovins talks about the energy-efficient technologies which will be implemented on the Peace Boat Ecoship project, and shares his hopes for the future of the ‘energy revolution.
The design for the world’s “greenest” cruise ship has been finalised, and its maiden voyage in 2020 will be announced at COP21.
