The first natural-gas-fuelled ship to sail in the Mediterranean

The Hypatia de Alexandria was the first vessel in the Baleària fleet with dual engines enabling it to run on natural gas. It was delivered to the company in 2019, and became the first natural-gas-powered passenger ship to sail in the Mediterranean. 

The ferry was named after the philosopher Hypatia, a native of Alexandria in Egypt, and a teacher at the city's Neoplatonic school. She excelled in astronomy and mathematics, and improved the design of the ancient astrolabes, instruments for determining the position of the stars, which were widely used in navigation. This Baleària initiative is related to its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG 5 on Gender Equality.
