World’s First Autonomous Hydrogen Boat Aims to Circle the Globe

Victorien Erussard was racing on his boat across the expanse of an ocean when he suddenly ran out of power. That event prompted the developer to build a revolutionary catamaran that runs entirely on renewable energy.

This July, a ship named “Energy Observer” set out to attempt to successfully circle the globe using only hydrogen, solar power, and wind turbines. Sponsored by Toyota, the ship has traveled over 7,000 nautical miles and will tour the world over a span of 6 years. We wish Erussard and his crew a very successful voyage! We can’t wait to see what he builds next.
