Incat Tasmania might have the solution.

Customer Buquebús asked if it was possible to replace the planned LNG powerplant with a battery-electric solution.

 Incat Group Chairman and Founder Robert Clifford said “the customer wants this to happen, Incat wants this to happen, and whilst there are matters to be finalised, I am extremely confident that Incat can deliver this ground-breaking ship. In my experience unless we see something come in from left field, this is a ‘done deal’.”
