The World's First Electric Flying Ship is All Set to Revolutionize Water Travel!
The world's first electric flying passenger ship, the Candela P-12, has recently completed all tests and is set to enter mass production in preparation for its launch in 2024. This groundbreaking vessel, developed by Candela Technology, has achieved remarkable results during its test flights, showcasing its potential to revolutionize water transportation. With a top speed of 30 knots (35 mph), the Candela P-12 has set a new record for electric passenger vessels. It boasts a range of up to 50 nautical miles, making it the first electric ship capable of covering most coastal transport needs. Furthermore, the ship's minimal wake ensures minimal damage to coastlines, docks, and moored ships, even when operating at full speed. Using computer-guided hydrofoils, the Candela P-12 elevates its hull above water friction, resulting in 80% less energy consumption compared to traditional high-speed vessels. This innovation overcomes the primary challenges faced by electric ships, such as limited range and slow speeds due to excessive energy consumption. The 30-seat Shuttle variant of the Candela P-12 is priced at €1.7 million, matching the cost of similar-sized conventional vessels and offering a more affordable option compared to other electric alternatives. Once in service, the ship is expected to significantly reduce 'fuel' costs by up to 90% compared to diesel vessels. The successful completion of tests and the impending production of the Candela P-12 marks a major milestone in sustainable transportation. With its potential to transform waterways into green highways, this electric flying passenger ship promises to revolutionize how we travel on water, catering to public transport fleets, VIP services, and private customers alike.
