Attended by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, the latest was launch of the first autonomous green hydrogen pontoon that can fill 30 cylinders and supply eight teams with green hydrogen in preparation for the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge (1-7 July 2024).

Even with limited resources it is now possible to produce green hydrogen," says YCM General Secretary Bernard d'Alessandri.   As the aim is for Monaco to spearhead responsible yachting, YCM unveiled the pontoon attended by officials including Céline Caron-Dagioni, Minister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development; Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior; Armelle Roudaut-Lafon, Director Maritime Affairs; Olivier Wenden, Vice-President of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation; Marco Casiraghi, engineer and instigator of the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge; and Francesco Prazzo, General Manager, SBM Offshore.
