ENGIE x ENERGY OBSERVER
All round the world, a new path is emerging: a path linked to a profound questioning of our responsibility towards future generations; a path that also encourages out solutions that will bring more harmonious progress. This transformation forms part of the partnership between ENGIE and ENERGY OBSERVER.
Facing the environmental challenges of the 21st century, ENGIE is playing a decisive role in the field of energy. At the heart of a radical transformation of its businesses, the Group has announced projects that embody the tremendous potential of the energy revolution.
ENERGY OBSERVER is the world’s first hydrogen-powered boat, with no greenhouse gas emissions or particulates. A true floating laboratory, it is autonomous in energy and works thanks to a combination of renewable energies feeding a system for producing hydrogen from seawater.
For the past 6 years, Victorien Erussard, an ocean racing yachtsman and French merchant navy officer, and Jérôme Delafosse, a professional deep sea diver and documentary filmmaker, have led this 21st century expedition to explore possible ways of fighting against climate change
After sailing around France in 2017 to ensure the reliability of the vessel’s technologies, ENERGY OBSERVER continued its voyages in the Mediterranean Sea in 2018 before embarking on a tour of Northern Europe this year.
