This huge seacraft is developed by Swiss company PlanetSolar, who wanted to create a vessel which was environmentally friendly and produced zero-emissions. Developed in 2010, the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar is the largest solar-powered boat ever built. Its 500 solar panels can provide 120 kilowatts of energy, allowing the ship to travel around 5 knots.
The boat has now been donated to the Race for Water Foundation, who will now use the ship as a laboratory for scientific missions to raise awareness about alternative energy solutions.
