The announcement reflects Dubai’s important position as a
global hub for future industries. (Jet) has advanced features and technologies
that enable it to travel quietly on the water at speeds of up to 40 knots. The
luxury boat has a capacity of eight to 12 passengers and is equipped with two
fuel cells and an air conditioner, as well as another cleantech,
environmentally friendly technology that helps reduce carbon emissions.
Commenting on this, Ellen Thibault, founder of Jet Zero-Emission and inventor
of the prototypes of Electric Sea Bubbles in 2016, said: “We are pleased
to announce from Dubai that we are ready to launch Jet. 

He said it would
be the world’s first boat without noise, waves, or tributes and was capable of
flying 80 centimeters above the water. “Dubai is an ideal destination for
innovators and companies from around the world to develop their plans and reach
their desired success, so we have announced (Jet),” he said. “We look
forward to meeting those interested in this amazing flying boat at the 28th International
Climate Summit (COP28),” he said

Which will take place in the United Arab
Emirates. This announcement is a step forward for the cleantech industry and
the startup itself. The startup has also been able to obtain a share of the
required funding of 10 million euros. The cooperation agreement between Jet and
UAE business partners is good news for the future of the environment and clean
energy maritime transport. Jet’s state-of-the-art fuel cell technology is set
for a historic inaugural flight during the November summits in preparation for
the next environmental conference in Dubai. 

According to the agency, Dubai has become an
international leader in developing the clean and renewable energy sector. The city
has also launched the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy (UAE) 2050. Under this
strategy, Dubai aims to generate 75% of its energy needs from clean sources by
2050. The strategy aims to make Dubai a global hub for clean energy and a green
economy. These five pillars consist of a mix of infrastructure, legislation,
funding, capacity building, and eco-friendly energy.
