PlanetSolar: Solar Powered Boat

PlanetSolar, the first solar-powered boat to attempt to travel around the world, arrives at the VivoCity shopping centre waterfront in Singapore.

The 31m by 15m white catamaran was unveiled to the world last year and embarked on a world tour from Monaco in September to promote solar energy for pollution-free shipping.

The Swiss-flagged boat, which was built in Germany and cost £16 million, is topped by 500 square metres of solar panels.
