Our laboratory vessel also broke its record of 50 000 MN sailed since the beginning of our Odyssey: an emotional moment for our crew!

      Hydrogen: India's decarbonization strategy

      Green hydrogen is at the heart of India's decarbonization strategy. Faced with socio-economic and environmental challenges, India wants 40% of its electricity production to be of non-fossil fuel origin by 2030. And green hydrogen is a key pillar of this strategy.
