Elomatic Consulting and Engineering, Monohakobi Technology Institute, Nippon Yusen KK (NYK) Lines Research Institute, and Garroni Design unveiled a concept for a future 8,000 container (TEU) ship named the Super Eco Ship (SES) 2030 in April 2009. The goal of the SES was to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 70% compared to a diesel-powered 8,000 container (TEU) ship.

The SES is powered by LNG fuel cells producing 50MW and 8 lightweight airfoil sails covered with solar panels producing 2.5 MW on average. The entire container area is also covered with solar panels that can be rolled up when loading or unloading the ship producing from 1.6 MW to 9 MW. In addition, the SES can eject microbubbles from under the bow to lubricate the ship and water boundary layer, which reduces the ship's propulsion power requirements by 10%.

The concept design was nominated for the Clean Innovation design award at the Nor-Shipping 2009 exhibition in Oslow, Norway. The Super Eco Ship 2030 will theoretically be available by the year 2030.
