The SEAFLOATECH POD® from SEAFLOATECH has been awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, rewarding profitable and sustainable solutions which protect the environment.  


The SEAFLOATECH POD®, an adaptable seabed-to-surface anchoring device, was attributed the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label following an assessment performed by external independent experts and based on verified standards. It is thereby joining the #1000solutions challenge, an initiative by the Solar Impulse Foundation to select solutions that meet high standards in profitability and sustainability and present them to decision-makers to fast-track their implementation.

To receive the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label, the SEAFLOATECH POD® was thoroughly assessed by a pool of independent experts according to 5 criteria covering the three main topics of Feasibility, Environmental and Profitability. All labelled solutions are part of the #1000solutions portfolio that will be presented to decision-makers in business and government by Bertrand Piccard, Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation. The aim of this initiative is to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.


“It is a real honour and the mark of many years’ hard work and dedication from the whole team to have been awarded as one of the #1000solutions of the Solar Impulse Foundation. Bertrand Piccard is a true pioneer, and his vision of the union between ecology and profitability aligns strongly with the ethos behind our SEAFLOATECH solutions. With this label in hand, we are excited by the prospect of our solutions being presented to key players and decision-makers in government and beyond, and the development of SEAFLOATECH as a key solution for a clean economic growth.”
