After travelling more than 4,000 nautical miles this year around Northern Europe, Energy Observer has arrived back in Saint-Malo, France, its home port, for the winter.
The return marks the end of the Odyssey for the future in Europe for the world’s first hydrogen-powered vessel, which has taken the crew from Israel to Spitsbergen via St Petersburg and Venice.
In 2020, Energy Observer will embark on a new Odyssey and the next phase of its round-the-world-tour that will take it west to North Asia.
The mission of this world tour, led by Victorien Erussard and Jérôme Delafosse, is to test the energies of tomorrow under extreme conditions, whilst finding concrete solutions for the planet.
Since its launch in 2017, Energy Observer has travelled more than 18,000 nautical miles. At the end of the six-year Odyssey, Energy Observer will have visited 50 countries, totalling 101 stopovers.
The Energy Observer exhibition will be open on the Quai du Bajoyer in Saint-Malo until 26th October.
