London: A 300-metre yacht with green technology, designed for environmental exploration, will also carry activists and billionaires on luxury trips.

The ship, called Earth 300, was designed by superyacht specialist Ivan Salas Jefferson and his company Iddes Yachts and is almost 300 meters long and 60 meters high and can accommodate 425 people.

Earth 300 is described as a vessel “that will unite science and exploration to confront earth’s greatest challenges,” by Iddes Yacht founder Ivan Salas Jefferson.

The yacht, equipped with 22 state-of-the-art laboratories and a “science sphere” on the aft deck, intends to carry scientists and students for environmental exploration for free. However, it also wants to open some of its luxury suites for wealthy tourists who can rent it for $3 million each for a 10-day journey—helping to make the venture profitable.

Earth 300 claims to be one hundred per cent carbon-free.

Entrepreneur Aaron Olivera, CEO of Earth 300 says he believes the vessel will help raise environmental awareness.

“We wanted the sphere to inspire whoever looks at it to save the planet,” Mr Olivera was quoted by Bloomberg as saying. “Imagine if we could build an object that would galvanize people around the planet.” He calls the ship “The Eiffel Tower of our generation.”

The vessel took six years to build and preapre.

It was designed for emissions-free sailing and will be powered by nuclear technology known as molten salt reactors (MSRs), however, it will at first run on synthetic green fuels until the reactors receive certification.

While the founders intend to provide spacious cabins, balcony and accommodation for staff to the rich, they alo want to provide scientists and explorers with modern technologies to carry out research and gather data using the ship’s equipment.
