MS Tûranor PlanetSolar Sets World Speed Record for Transatlantic Crossing by Solar Electric Vessel
Date:5/19/2013

s commitment to push the limits of solar technology. After having demonstrated the potential of solar energy by accomplishing the first around the world tour only powered by the sun, PlanetSolar is now touring the world to illustrate the practical applications of such a vessel. In June, the vessel will arrive in the United States, with stops in Miami, New York and Boston. When docking at the ports the ship transforms into an educational platform to share the excitement and the potential of solar power.

A Global Ambassador for Renewable Energy from Switzerland
Switzerland’s MS Tûranor PlanetSolar is the world’s biggest solar ship. Launched in 2010, this first-of-its-kind catamaran runs exclusively on energy from the sun with more than 5,500 sq. feet of its surface covered with panels (photovoltaic cells) which power the electric motors. The ship’s first voyage was nothing but a complete world tour. PlanetSolar traveled for 584 days crossing the Atlantic, the Panama Canal, the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, and other bodies of water with stops in 28 countries.

In 2012, PlanetSolar set five world records for a solar-powered boat verified by Guinness World Records. This included longest journey with the first trip around the world, the fastest crossing of the Atlantic and of the South China Sea, all while only using the power of the sun. The crew relied on energy provided during daylight and maximized the ship’s route and speed depending on sunlight intensity and weather forecasts.

Switzerland’s innovative endeavor is now shared with the world. Acting as a global – and floating – ambassador for renewable energy, PlanetSolar staff and crew educate local communities at each stop of its journey about the practical applications and potential of solar. Fans can
