First launched back in 2017, Energy Observer aimed to be the first vessel to circumnavigate the globe entirely self-sufficiently, thanks to renewable energies and hydrogen, without emitting any polluting emissions or noise. To be more specific, it’s capable of producing decarbonized hydrogen onboard, thanks to its energy technologies.
It’s powered by renewable solar, wind, with and hydrogen fuel cell technologies to convert seawater into energy. More specifically, it uses three types of solar panels spanning a surface of 130 square meters, two vertical axis wind turbines, a traction kite, two reversible electric motors of hydrogenation, a lithium battery, a desalination machine, electrolyzer, compressor, fuel cell, and 62 kg of hydrogen. It made its first stop in Paris, where it started its mission to raise awareness and offer education on sustainability, led by Jérôme Delafosse, a passionate reporter as well as sea explorer.
