Derecktor Shipyards in Bridgeport, Conn., is converting an existing vessel into what will be a hybrid-powered 600-passenger ferry for New York Harbor.

Hornblower Cruises and Events commissioned the multimillion-dollar vessel and an April launch is expected, according to a report in the Connecticut Post. The Hornblower Hybrid project calls for the vessel to use wind turbines, solar power, hydrogen and diesel fuel.
