On March 28th, and after 2 months in winter refit, Energy Observer the first hydrogen powered vessel to try and go around the world, resumed its adventure for 8 months, leaving from the old seaport of Marseille, to discover innovations building a cleaner and more sustainable future with its 2018 Mediterranean Tour.

THE VESSEL

Energy Observer is the first hydrogen vessel, aiming the energy autonomy, with zero greenhouse gas emissions or fine particles. This former race boat, an outstanding competitor has been fully transformed into a vessel of the future, powered by electric propulsion thanks to a mix of renewable energies and a hydrogen production system that produces carbon-free hydrogen on board using seawater.
