The SV Réhabitat, "Noah's Ark" for the anthropocene
The SV Réhabitat is a wind and sun-powered cargo vessel refitted to transport a diversity of species safely, comfortably, and reliably. At 200 meters long and 40 meters wide, the vessel sports telescopic rigid sails composed of composite recycled material, automated to rotate and catch the wind for optimal efficiency. The hull design harkens back to traditional vessels used to safely relocate animal cargo. It is a marvel of modern ingenuity imbued with timeless design.
The fully integrated system includes deck-mounted, marine-grade solar panels that supply electricity for onboard lighting, temperature control, and leisure. Hydrogen fuel cell technology transforms seawater into stored energy. Wildlife are contained in comfortable transitional habitats with access to species-appropriate social areas.
