2006 – 2011
The “PlanetSolar” expedition is the first global tour made by a boat powered exclusively by solar energy. The expedition left Monaco on September 27, 2010. Its purpose is to demonstrate the power and efficiency of solar energy and to create a new approach to solar mobility.
The MS Turanor PlanetSolar will sail across all of the oceans and cast anchor in every continent. Boasting close to 537 square metres of photovoltaic modules, the catamaran is the largest solar boat ever built.
