Cargolux sponsors Solar Arctic project

Cargolux is providing transportation for a prototype solar-powered boat, between Luxembourg and Calgary, Canada, ahead of an Arctic expedition.




The Solar Arctic project was initiated by DreamTime, a non-profit organisation that deals with environmental awareness and climate issues.

This expedition, undertaken by French navigator Anne Quéméré, is a solo journey of 3,500 km in a prototype solar-energy propelled boat from Tuktoyaktuk in northwestern Canada, through the Northwest Passage, to Pond Inlet on Baffin Island.

Cargolux is proud of supporting the Solar Arctic project, which, like the Solar Impulse project, is an effort to explore new and innovative paths in the transportation industry”, explains Moa Sigurdardottir, head of corporate communications.

Cargolux has history in supporting solar-powered expeditions. In 2013 and 2015, the all-cargo airline successfully transported the Solar Impulse airplane on two of its missions.

For its first endeavour, the “Across America Tour”, Cargolux brought the aircraft from Payerne in Switzerland to the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Airfield in the USA, from where Solar Impulse flew across the country. For the second, more ambitious “World Tour”, Cargolux ensured the solar airplane was successfully flown from Switzerland to Abu Dhabi.
