For the DELANCHY Group, the partnership with Energy Observer seals its ambition to begin the energy transition to transport. It is part of the continuity of the sustainable development approach undertaken in its CSR programme.

Moving forward without waiting for changes in its activities, DELANCHY is also exploring in the field the technologies available in the world of transport and logistics.
The Group is thus building its own « energy mix » by using trucks that comply with the latest standards in force, 100% electric refrigerated trucks in urban areas, and gas and biogas vehicles at various agencies.
Inspired by its commitment to Energy Observer, the DELANCHY Group is also committed to hydrogen solutions with its various partners, notably by testing in 2020 the first hydrogen refrigerated semi-trailer developed by the manufacturer CHEREAU.

The Group is embarking on the adventure after meeting Victorien Erussard and his crew during the sporting and charitable challenges of the Défoi Voile Solitaires en Peloton - ARSEP association.
Main Partner, DELANCHY is also Logistics Partner for the shore teams in the organisation of various events, stopovers and shows.

“Because tomorrow is today. We continue to believe that ecology is an awareness that concerns everyone. The environment is more than ever at the heart of our concerns. We are embarking with Energy Observer to prove that a cleaner and more respectful future for mankind and the planet is possible. This project is in perfect harmony with our desire to develop renewable energies for future generations. #TransportingTheFuture is our watchword and we are convinced we can do it. It is with small streams that large rivers are formed.”
