The Energy Observer has completed more than 4,000 nautical miles before completing its Tour de France in Monaco, arriving on Wednesday, December 13 at Quai Antoine 1er.
This, the first self-sustaining hydrogen ship without the emission of greenhouse gases or fine particles, will welcome the general public at its village until December 21, 2017.
The choice of Monaco for a port visit echoes the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s commitment to innovative projects such as Planet Solar, the Formula E and Solar Impulse championships.
For a week, the crew of Energy Observer will take advantage of this last stop to meet local players whose initiatives are remarkable, while preparing the continuation of the Odyssey for the Future in the Mediterranean and working on the first technological optimisations of the ship.
The exhibition village dedicated to the project is open and free until Thursday, December 21, from 10 am to 6 pm.
The links between the Albert II Foundation of Monaco, the Principality of Monaco and Energy Observer go back to the beginnings of the project, through several meetings during which the Sovereign has always taken a great interest in the project and declared his willingness to welcome the ship for a stage of its World Tour.
This is now done, and this support is in line with the Principality’s commitment to encourage major technological innovation projects, in the service of the fight against global warming.
