The first energy self-sufficient boat was launched on 14th April 2017 in Saint Malo waters. In July this catamaran, named “Energy Observer” will set out on a tremendous challenge!
The boat has indeed the ambitious project to become the symbol of energy mix management. In a six-year journey around the world, completely autonomously by means of its hydrogen propulsion and renewable energies (wind power and solar energy), the “Solar Impulse” of the seas aims to be at the forefront of a genuine energy revolution.
We are proud to be a supplier for this innovative project. The catamaran hydraulic steering system is supplied by LS. This equipment meets the requirements of such a challenge for smooth, efficient and reliable navigation.
Lecomble & Schmitt wishes fair winds to Energy Observer!
