Hyke is driving the shift towards zero-emission waterborne mobility and logistics, focusing on making waterborne solutions competitive with traditional land-based alternatives. Our activity is focused on (a) cities and (b) the maritime industries.

  • Cities are undergoing a transformation towards zero-emission, autonomous and shared solutions for mobility and logistics. Hyke helps accelerating this transformation by offering cities and fleet operators a complete zero-emission waterborne transportation solution, consisting of our beautiful all-electric ferries, charging infrastructure, autonomous software and deployment services.
  • The maritime industry is increasingly shifting towards zero-emission and zero-accident technology. Hyke helps boat designers, shipbuilders and operators make this shift by offering a suite of innovative technologies, including situational awareness, autonomous navigation, remote operations, and fleet management technologies.

Our team of engineers and designers are developing cutting edge solutions that improve safety and efficiency, reduce costs and enable new applications. Creating these game-changing solutions requires us to work closely with innovation partners internationally, to secure soft funding from relevant public and private sources, and to ensure continuous development and management of IPR. This will be the job of our new
