On the way to Greece
After Tunisia, Israel and Cyprus and nearly 7000 nautical miles traveled, Energy Observer
stopped in Athens, in Greece on June 19 for the twentieth stage of its world tour. The vessel stayed 5 days in the city to introduce the public to the embedded technologies of this first hydrogen ship around the world and to meet the local pioneers of the ecological transition.
It was also the opportunity to take stock of the innovations discovered during the navigations in Greece which is today facing many environmental issues such as pollution, mass tourism and maritime traffic on its shores. Victorian Erussard, founder and captain of Energy Observer, explains that this "Odyssey in the Greek Islands [...] has made it possible to take stock of the incredible potential of renewable energies. For example, sailors have discovered that the island of Tilos, home to 700 inhabitants, will be "soon autonomous thanks to a single wind turbine and solar panels."
