This page originally related to a solar circumnavigation project that is no longer live that dated from 2008 until 2010, partially revamped in 2014 and finally put to rest in 2015. The team at that time were seeking corporate backers, but cancelled the then proposed expedition for lack of interest and the team parted company.
There is an alternative and more advanced vessel in the offing that is likely to be in tank test model form from 2019, but this is only a feasibility exercise should there be sufficient interest at any time in the future to warrant additional time expenditure developing the concept in the interests of furthering low carbon shipping. Please follow the links for a different proposed route for a possible start in 2024-25.
The development team for what would be an ocean awareness campaign will consist of several European companies, to include UK and European academic institutions. Due to the charitable constitution of the lead, Horizon 2020 European funding and other UK government incentives are unlikely to be applicable under existing rules - and in any event would not cover administrative and premises overheads. Crowd funding might then become a viable alternative at some point in time - as would philanthropic donations.
