Air Liquide is supporting the Energy Observer project, the first boat in the world powered by hydrogen and renewable energies, that is also energy self-sufficient and does not emit any greenhouse gases and fine particles.

The Group shares with the creators of Energy Observer the determination to develop new technologies to support the transition to a low-carbon society and the development of a hydrogen economy.

As a hydrogen pioneer, the Group is convinced that hydrogen is a cornerstone of the energy transition. Being a major player in supplying hydrogen, the Group has developed a unique expertise over the last 60 years and masters the entire hydrogen supply chain: low-carbon and renewable production, storage, liquefaction and distribution.

Air Liquide has also committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, aligning the Group with international efforts to reduce global warming.

Matthieu Giard, Vice President, member of the Executive Committee, supervising Hydrogen activities: “Air Liquide is proud to support this scientific and human adventure. Through the collaboration of our teams with Energy Observer’s and the testing of hydrogen technologies in extreme environments, we will be able to accelerate the development of hydrogen-based solutions and their large-scale applications, in particular in the maritime sector. It is by acting now, as we prepare for the future and develop new models of sustainable mobility, that we will be able to have a positive impact on tomorrow’s society."
