Energy Observer, the world’s first catamaran powered solely by renewable energy and CEA Liten, a research institute that developed the project, have chosen Prysmian Group to supply cables which provide energy generated from renewable sources to the vessel’s motor. 

The partnership was unveiled at the Paris Air Show on June 20.

Featuring a length of 31 meters and a width of 12.80 meters, the catamaran is powered solely by renewables, drawing on 130m2 of solar panels, two vertical wind turbines and a sophisticated system that desalinates water, transforming it into hydrogen through electrolysis.

Energy Observer, which was launched on April 14, 2017, at the Port of Saint Malo, France, has embarked on a six-year trip around the world during which it will visit 101 ports in 50 countries.

The goal of the project is to share with the world a concept of electrical power not in conflict with nature, according to Prysmian.
