It seems only a few months ago boundary layer announced its $5 million round of funding, but the company is not resting on its laurels. Today the founders told me that it has signed some solid launch partners and is preparing for a large-scale rollout as early as 2025.

The company plans to launch high-speed hydrogen-powered cargo ships called ARGO, the menacing-looking beast at the top of this article. The ships offer emission-free transit alternatives. The company hopes its solutions can compete with regional air freight.

The company’s flagship ARGO will be powered by green liquid hydrogen and fuel cells, which do not contain CO. expel2 During business. This is an attractive feature for companies trying to reduce their climate impact. Reducing dependence on air freight is an important aspect in this regard.

“We recognize that new technologies such as ARGO play an important role in reducing our carbon emissions, especially in hard-to-reduce sectors such as air transportation,” said Marcus LeMaster, global director of Logistics Sustainability at Schneider Electric of part Boundary Layer’s press conference. “As launch partners, we look forward to sharing the [Boundary Layer] as they bring this product to market.”

Ed Kearney, CEO of Boundary Layer Technologies, is betting the company’s future on a huge vision — he believes nearly every Fortune 500 company using air freight in Asia will eventually need the company’s fast container shipping.

“Our recent partnerships mark an important step towards realizing our vision to launch the world’s first fast, zero-emission freight service using hydrofoil container ships. From here on, we are specifically focused on getting our first vessel ready to load containers for our launch partners by the first quarter of 2025,” said Kearney. “In addition to these launch partners, we are also in advanced discussions with many other major companies in the sectors of computer manufacturers, medical device suppliers, consumer electronics and automotive OEMs, which really shows the magnitude of the problems ARGO is already solving worldwide.”

The first vessel will enter service in Asia by 2025 and will have a gross cargo capacity of 200 tons. It will operate at a cruising speed of 40 knots, powered by the company’s proprietary hydrofoil technology. The exact routes for service will be selected in the coming months with their launch partners, but key port cities under consideration include Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo and several Southeast Asian cities.
