Energy Observer’s Captain and Expedition Leader, Victorien Erussard and Jérôme Delafosse, have been selected to carry the Olympic flame – set to be powered by hydrogen for the first time in the international sporting events history – in Tokyo this summer.

The news was announced today at Energy Observer’s annual press conference in Paris, France, where the team behind the world’s first self-sufficient seagoing vessel powered by hydrogen revealed the boat will journey to Tokyo for the Olympic Games as part of its 2020 programme.
