The Energy Observer: Hybrid 100-Foot Catamaran Crossed the Atlantic on Hydrogen Fuel and Solar Power Alone
The Energy Observer, a converted ocean-racing catamaran that runs on a hydrogen fuel cell and solar power, recently completed its first 5,000-nautical mile transatlantic voyage from Brittany, France, to the Cape Verde Islands in Africa to Martinique in the Caribbean.
The five-person crew also made the trip during the Covid-19 lockdown, so she ran in virtual isolation, unable to stop at any ports along the way for the sake of the crew’s health. Perhaps most importantly, she accomplished the voyage with zero carbon emissions.
Energy Observer is the first hydrogen vessel, aiming for 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.
