  • Investors: Accor, Thélem-Assurances, Amfil (Mulliez Group), Delanchy Transports, Accorinvest. Want to raise 2.4 million euros for Project
  • Partnerships with Zodiac and Torqeedo have already been concluded.

At the Solar & Energy Boat Challenge of Monaco, Energy Observer, the first hydrogen ship around the world announces the launch of Energy Observer Developments. 

The ambition of this new phase of the project is to propose disruptive, innovative, optimized and accessible solutions to the different maritime and port communities.

Energy Observer Developments and its partners are positioning themselves as a European leader capable of designing, assembling and distributing zero emission energy systems on an industrial scale. China, Japan, Korea, California and all of Scandinavia are announcing massive investments in the deployment of clean hydrogen, and Energy Observer Developments wants to make an operational contribution to this energy revolution.

After the experimentation, the development

The development of Energy Observer’s innovations is the logical and coherent continuation of this unique project, which is based on two bases: innovate and communicate. After the time of the experiment, world firsts (embedded electrolyser), comes the time of the innovation, the putting into practice, then the development of concrete and accessible hydrogen solutions to the greatest number.

“Innovation makes sense only if it is broadcast, the most extraordinary invention is only interesting if it is shared. “

Energy Observer continues its path as the first French ambassador of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UN and developer of technological pioneers, and will continue more than ever its experiments embedded around the world. But some of its engineers, joined by the best specialists and a solid core of industrial and financial partners, will now work on these developments.

The team of Energy Observer Developments

R & D engineers, offshore racing champions and merchant marine engineers: this learned alchemy of curiosity and experimentation, thirst for performance and marine pragmatism is necessary because we do not cheat with the environment. This is the secret of beautiful stories, passionate but complementary teams, strong and motivated financial and industrial partners to concretely accelerate the energy transition.

The three solutions of Energy Observer Developments

Energy Observer Developments is an expert in the deployment of low-carbon hydrogen ecosystems in all types of territories. An optimized model, creating the proper connection between local producers and land and sea consumers.Set featured image

Three complementary solutions will be proposed:

The H₂ 360 Eco-systems : 360 stations in coastal and port areas that meet the needs of maritime and land transport while pooling hydrogen consumption, with Energy Observer expertise in corrosion, ventilation and managing hydrogen under intense weather conditions.

Energy Designer, the research office for the diversity of renewable energies : thanks to numerous solar, wind, hydrogenation or energy pooling experiments developed on Energy Observer, the team’s engineers have a unique experience in the field of energy field innovation and the mix of available energies according to the stakes and the different applications.

GEH₂, the next-generation hydrogen generator set : the combination of the best skills in marine propulsion and energy storage in difficult environments. The objective is to make reliable, assemble and distribute a hydrogen generator that can replace diesel generators, with particular attention to urgent maritime needs. This new product will have to offer a clean, but also accessible and competitive alternative to internal combustion engines, the use of which will eventually be restricted or prohibited in many maritime or river areas.

Energy Observer base

These three activities are, as they are often at Energy Observer, interdependent and complementary, calling on the best specialists united in a common goal: to offer accessible and realistic energy solutions to as many people as possible.

Thus, Energy Observer gives a precise meaning and a real societal dimension to its commitment as a pioneer and ambassador for hydrogen and renewable energies. From pure technological demonstrator to that of committed economic actor, the course is crossed!
