SV Traveledge is a 74ft Ketch on a crucial mission; to sail around the world researching the devastating effects of plastic pollution. Emily Penn, ocean advocate and eXXpedition Co-Founder came to Gecko Energy to reduce the impact of their vessel.
Proudly we joined forces with Emily’s team to not only design and upgrade the vessels power and storage, but also add communications, data acquisition, add solar and wind and optimise the engine to reduce their demand on fossil fuels.
With the highest safety rating possible MCA Category 0. This means that she is built and equipped to sail anywhere in the world in any conditions. She has sailed round the world. She was specially chosen by the British Army for an expedition to Antarctica in 2001-2002.
A full and comprehensive approach to safety, performance and with an eye for detail, she was designed and completed to ISO standards and beyond. With further upgrades planned, eXXpedition, and their 300 strong team look to acheive net zero emissions in the near future. And we are on hand to help all the way.
