Another stellar project for Cargolux
After transporting the "Solar Impulse" on two missions in 2013 and 2015, Cargolux is proud to take part in another pioneering solar-powered transport project. The airline will fly a prototype solar-powered boat between Luxembourg and Calgary (Canada), in advance of an Arctic expedition.
The "Solar Arctic" project was initiated by a non-profit organisation which deals with environmental awareness and climate issues. The expedition, to be undertaken by the French navigator Anne Quéméré, is a solo journey in a prototype solar-energy propelled boat across the Northwest Passage that links the Atlantic to the Pacific.
This completely autonomous undertaking is an attempt to complete a 3,500 km trip between the Inuit villages Tuktoyaktuk in northwestern Canada and Pond Inlet on Baffin Island. (ah)
