Watertaxi Rotterdam has expanded its fleet with a hydrogen water taxi. It is the first ship in Europe's largest port to sail on this sustainable energy. The 12-person MSTX 22 was developed by SWIM, a partnership between Watertaxi Rotterdam, maritime innovator Flying Fish and hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer zepp.solutions from Delft, and the Rotterdam venture building studio Enviu. The hydrogen water taxi was christened on 30 August by Mrs Chantal Zeegers, alderman for Climate, Building and Living in Rotterdam.

In addition to the MSTX 22, Watertaxi Rotterdam already has six electric vessels in service.The Port of Rotterdam Authority, Uniper and Shell are already investing heavily in production facilities for green hydrogen on the Maasvlakte. Shell expects to be able to open the first hydrogen factory here in 2023. The Port of Rotterdam Authority and Uniper want to have a second hydrogen factory operational by 2024, also on the Maasvlakte.
