HCMC – From June 18 to June 29, residents in HCMC can witness Energy Observer Odyssey, the first hydrogen-powered, zero-emission vessel to be self-sufficient in energy, advocating and serving as a laboratory for ecological transition. HCMC is the 73rd stopover of its round the world odyssey.
On the occasion, the Energy Observer crew will be able to present the ship’s autonomous zero-emission system to several hundred visitors and decision-makers, and as always to many students and school children in collaboration with the French Consulate General in HCMC.
Vietnam is one of the last stopovers of the Energy Observer Odyssey in Southeast Asia, after Singapore and Thailand.
Setting sail from its port of registry of Saint Malo in 2017, Energy Observer has already covered over 50,000 nautical miles, made 72 stopovers, and visited over 40 countries.
Born out of a legendary catamaran, whose many accolades include being the fastest sailboat around the world with Sir Peter Blake, Energy Observer is a laboratory for ecological transition designed to push the envelope concerning zero-emission technologies. From hydrogen to sun, wind, and tidal power, all solutions have been experimented with, tested, and optimized to make clean energies a practical reality accessible to all.
The boat can be viewed but cannot be visited by the public.
