HYNOVA Video Series

Stand for Cannes Show 2021: Jetée 124, Vieux Port

UPDATE: 2nd Video August 2021 

After the 1st interview with Chloé Zaied, Founder of the Hynova Yacht Project, the first Hydrogen powered Yacht, in September 2020 in Monaco, we went to Cannes in Summer 2021, to take the opportunity to test for the first time the Hynova 40 in the water.

We had the chance to witness the refueling process and to interview Chloé during our seatrial.

The silence onboard is stunning as well as the fact there are no exhaust fumes at all. Just the fresh breeze of the sea. fantastic.

I was invited by Chloé Zaied to interview her during the secret launch Event in Monaco end of September 2020. She introduced her amazing project to selected few, including Prince Albert II of Monaco, who congratulated her personally on her achievements.

The HYNOVA 40 is the first fully Hydrogen powered Yacht to go into production. Energy Observer Developments (EO Dev) provides the drivetrain and is one of the official sales Partners.

Currently the European Union and many of its Member States such as France and Germany, are announcing Hydrogen Funding and development programs. On the route to net zero carbon emission goals, Hydrogen plays a key role. 

It was a wonderfully sunny day in Monaco and Chloé took a lot of time to explain to me every detail of her eagerly awaited project.

Please watch the full interview above and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

how does the hydrogen drive train work?


80 kW Fuel cell and two batteries.
2 x 150 kW silent electric engines
Cruising Speed 15 knots
top speed 25 knots 
22.5 Kg of Hydrogen in 3 Tanks

= This is the state of the art drive train

Hynova utilizes a silent electric engine driven by the hydrogen stored on board the vessel as a source of fuel. We have made a short video (1min) to enable you to discover the world of  hydrogen for maritime purposes and discover the technology which surrounds it. The concept of Green Hydrogen consists of generating electricity from a renewable source. This electricity then separates the oxygen from the hydrogen and is then used to fuel the vessel. ​It is the ​hydrogen obtained through the electrolysis of water. ​This is a non-polluting alternative that Hynova will be implementing.
