“We are very proud to support the Energy Observer Odyssey and equally keen to invent and disseminate concrete solutions to contain its impact, in marine shipping in particular. From this perspective, the exceptional journey on which Victorien Erussard and Jérôme Delafosse embarked is exemplary, in that it highlights the collective know-how of French scientists, insurers and sailors for this cause that we hold dearly to heart !”

Pierre Blayau, Chairman of CCR
