Association Esprit de Velox
Esprit de Velox has been developing a bio-inspired, Zero-Impact vessel, dedicated to Responsible Research and Preservation Operations, open to Collaborative Intelligence and embedded R&D, available to the Research and Innovation communities, pioneering at sea non-invasive and interdisciplinary Research, understanding and preserving the Earth system, from tropical to polar navigation zones.
The environmental neutrality and energy autonomy of the ship are key assets, which allow clean data and complex works. The vessel is expected to achieve a world’s first, without disturbing the ecological balance and embodying the decarbonisation of maritime transport. The programme is a triple world’s firsts for a >500 UMS vessel, wind main propulsion and Carbon-free Renewable Energy Island grid. Recyclable composites structure.
