Powered solely by renewable energies, Energy Observer will be the very first hydrogen-fuelled and energy-autonomous boat, with no greenhouse gas or fine particle emissions. Delta Dore, as a specialist in controlling comfort and energy in all types of buildings, and as a pioneer stakeholder and innovative Breton group, will be taking part in this experiment - thus resulting in a technological and financial partnership.
Delta Dore and Energy Observer: the same taste for challenges... Driven by commitment!
For the last 40 years, Delta Dore has been innovating to put the best of technology to the service of users and their comfort, as well as to ensure energy savings. By joining forces with Energy Observer, the group will be making all its technological know-how available to the teams in charge of this "lab-boat", and at the same time will be expressing the founding values of the company, in place since its creation.
"Energy transition has been a major area of focus for many years. As such, we wish to engage in a development effort that meets the needs of current generations without jeopardising the ability of future generations to meet theirs." Marcel Torrents,President of Delta Dore's Executive Board
All Delta Dore's expertise at the service of sailing
Delta Dore wishes to share its expertise through this partnership. Just like it did in the field of housing through its involvement in the positive energy housing project (COMPEOS), the Group intends to share its know-how and adapt it to sailing, and namely to the Energy Observer boat. The craft will be fitted with Delta Dore products, which will take over the control of lighting and heating, and will monitor consumption and security (alarms) aboard.
Energy Observer, the "lab-boat" committed to protecting the planet
This "floating smart-grid" will sail out from Saint-Malo and will be roaming the seas for 6 years, travelling to 50 different countries. The captain Victorien Erussard and expedition chief Jérôme Delafosse will be making 101 ports of call to showcase - in extreme conditions - the performance of an energy production chain that functions entirely without any greenhouse gas emissions, in preparation for its application in our daily lives.
