The Bluefish ZCC concept is aimed at producing enabling technology for Zero Carbon Cruisers (ZCCs) of the future. ZCC theory is based on a lightweight SWASH hull design that is extremely stable, upon which it is hoped to develop this concept in the UK and in Europe via collaborative research with academia and industry.
The theory is that such a vessel need not use diesel fuel to traverse the oceans at relatively high speed 24/7 and 365 days a year if required. The enabling dual-axis harvesting technology as applied to a SWASH hull is yet to be tried in any form to be able to proceed to a feasibility study and from there to industrial research. Collaborative research will be essential at almost every stage before a prototype might finally hit the oceans.
Broad estimations suggest that a vessel of this design will pay for itself in fuel saved every ten years. The bigger the vessel, the more fuel is saved. With rising bunker prices the economics of operation are favorable, apart from green politics now playing an active role.
