Preserving the planet has become a global issue, what to do?
Pollution is one of the most important issues of this decade. Protecting the land and the sea is becoming essential to ensure the survival and perpetuation of man and the species that inhabit the earth. But where is the pollution in the Mediterranean Sea and especially can we change our lifestyles to become actors of the energy transition to preserve the planet.
Focus on the pollution of the Mediterranean Sea
In 2018 a feasibility study had been conducted to place the Mediterranean in a Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA). Where ships in the Baltic or North Sea are required to use only fuels containing a maximum of 0.1% sulphur, here the rate rises to 1.5% for passenger ships and 3.5% for container ships. Since 2015 seaZen is already acting to reduce polluting emissions in the Mediterranean with its solar boat rental platform.
100% eco-friendly boats
The fight against air and water pollution is one of the company's important vectors. Our offer of seaZen solar panel boats allows emission-free sailing. Indeed, with solar panels installed on its bimini the catamaran is totally autonomous and does not require additional fuel.
Simple and effective: enjoy comfort with your family
Among the many advantages this vessel offers, one stands out, navigation can be done without a permit. Just a little training and you will be able to pilot it. The moderate cruising pace allows you to enjoy the view of the coastline and to cruise at sea with family or friends in complete comfort.
With the beautiful days approaching, a sea ride seems ideal for a group outing. Our site has everything you need to know and you can book easily.
Can we play a role in the energetic transition?
A few years after 2016 COP 21, expectations are high among the public regarding energy transition.
We have quoted in a previous article examples of solar vehicles, flying, rolling, and floating. But for the success of energy transition goals, the public must be able to find both functionalities and a competitive price for use.
This is why the solar boat appears as a potential candidate in order to prove the success of energy transition. We demonstrate it daily to our customers in Beaulieu sur Mer, between Nice and Monaco.
We also note that the technologies deployed on seaZen are dependent on the progress made in other industries. The solar roof for example, is designed as an aircraft wing and the advances made in the seaZen batteries come mainly from the automotive industry.
But what brings solar boating closer to the automotive and aeronautical industries is the challenge we all have to face to trivialize the electric vehicle. So many of our customers came to us thinking that electric transport is "the future" when it is today a reality.
We believe the seaZen Attitude can contribute to this reality as we operate the solar boat rental safely at an affordable price.
