The eco friendly world has reached Venice. The Bauer, one of the most prestigious properties in the city, and family-run, has purchased a revolutionary energy-efficient nautical system for its new B MARE shuttle boat. Created by Posidonia Srl and MW Lugano, who claim to be leaders in Europe for their electric propulsion and solar-energy MW line of boats, this electro solar-powered system will allow the B MARE Vaporetto (Bauer of the Sea) to operate with no pollution, no noise and no waves between the Bauer's main hotel near St Mark's Square and the new Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa on Giudecca island, just across the lagoon.
Bauer Hotel chair and CEO Francesca Bortolotto Possati whose family has lived in Venice for generations, dedicates this gift of environmental preservation to the Bauer's worldwide clientele and hopes that the B Mare may lend itself well to being a new water taxi for the future of Venice. Using accumulated solar energy captured through roof panels, the boat can transport 12 passengers at a maximum speed of 9mph with no pollution, no noise and no waves. It is 28 feet long and designed with maximum safety and style.
It is estimated that, with this new electro solar-powered system, the B Mare will be nearly 98% more cost-efficient and 84% more energy-efficient than traditional oil/diesel fuelled water buses and will have zero carbon dioxide emissions.
