Switzerland’s MS Tûranor PlanetSolar, the World’s Largest Solar Boat, Arrives in New York City
Date:6/18/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

In support of Swiss contributions to scientific research, technological innovation and sustainability, the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York is pleased to welcome the world’s largest solar boat, Switzerland’s MS Tûranor PlanetSolar, to Manhattan. PlanetSolar is in New York City as part of its DeepWater Expedition 2013 tour with scientists on board from the University of Geneva. The catamaran, led by Capitain Gérard d’Aboville, runs exclusively on energy from the sun and eliminates the need for fueled electricity, allowing researchers to collect uncontaminated data along the Gulf Stream with high-tech instruments that track changes in ocean currents and climate. Solar panels cover more than 5,554 square feet of the ship’s surface, visible to the public at North Cove Marina until June 20, 2013.

To celebrate the boat’s presence in New York, the Consulate General of Switzerland is hosting a series of educational events and private visits, in addition to today’s media conference with opening remarks by Sergej Mahnovski, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability, which oversees the City’s comprehensive sustainability initiative, PlaNYC.

“PlanetSolar has become a prominent ambassador for renewable energies. It also embodies Switzerland’s commitment to foster innovation for a more sustainable future, similar to the recent initiatives announced by the City of New York,” says Ambassador François Barras, Consul General of Switzerland in New York. “The ship’s arrival is timely following Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal to protect the city against the effects of climate change.”
