Energy Observer is the first hydrogen-powered ship to circumnavigate the globe, completing a 6-year, 50-country, 101-stop expedition with zero greenhouse gas emissions and no fine-particle emissions. Its Odyssey for the Future aims to educate, raise awareness and detect innovative solutions for the ecological transition. This mission, led by Victorien Erussard, founder and captain, and Jérôme Delafosse, expedition leader, has made him France’s first ambassador for the Sustainable Development Goals, and he is proud to be leading it to the four corners of the globe.
Energy Observer is the first hydrogen-powered, zero-emission vessel, initiated and developed by Victorien Erussard and a team of engineers and sailors. This electrically-powered vessel of the future runs on a mix of renewable energies and a decarbonized hydrogen production system, via seawater electrolysis: a world first.
