PlanetSolar: First Around the World with Solar Energy 2010-2012

CCI was responsible for Marketing & Partnerships

Philosophy: Much more than a world tour - a decisive step into a new future

The surface of MS TÛRANOR PlanetSolar, currently the largest solar boat and the largest mobile solar platform in the world, is over 530 m2. The goal of the first circumnavigation of the world solely by solar energy was to offer future-proof solutions for sustainable living and environmentally responsible mobility concepts.

The PlanetSolar project employed leading-edge technology available on the market. The intention was to demonstrate that by innovative use of existing materials and technology, high-performance solar mobility can be realised today.



The PlanetSolar world tour started in Monaco on the 27th of September 2010. The boat was in: Miami, Cancun (the UN conference on climate change), Colombia , Panama, Galapagos, French Polynesia, Tonga, Australia, the Philippines, Taiwan, China (Hongkong, Shanghai), Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India (Mumbai), Emirates (Abu Dhabi), Jordania, Israel, Egypt, Greece, Italy and Monaco. After 584 days, Tûranor PlanetSolar returned to Monaco on 4 May 2012 after sailing around the globe. For more information visit www.planetsolar.org
