Energy Observer forges ahead with its planetary Odyssey in the Pacific, first vessel powered with renewables and hydrogen.

Within a very uncertain global health context, Energy Observer has decided to forge ahead with its round the world Odyssey. Indeed, together with their partners, Victorien Erussard and his team are keen to continue delivering a message of optimism across the world.

Among the highlights of the programme: the Galapagos Islands, California and then their first Transpacific passage, which is set to lead them to Tokyo for the Olympic Games.

  • 6 countries, 8 stopovers, one of them at the heart of Tokyo during the Olympic Games
  • A film shoot in the Galapagos Islands, a Unesco biosphere reserve
  • A first Transpacific passage entirely self-sufficient in energy
  • The exploration of this new ‘centre of the universe’ where hydrogen lies at the heart of economic and environmental policies.

And so begins the 5th season of a 7-year Odyssey for Energy Observer, the first vessel powered with renewable energies and hydrogen. Inevitably impacted by the global pandemic, their journey around the world requires the teams to adapt to the multiple local health guidelines. In this way, Energy Observer intends to open up new avenues whilst continuing its exploration of positive energies for a brighter future.
