The Turanor PlanetSolar, the first solar-powered boat to travel around the world, arrives in Hong Kong on August 15, 2011. -- PHOTO: AFP HONG KONG (AFP) - There is 'huge potential' to use alternative energy in the shipping industry, the man behind the world's biggest solar boat said on Monday as it arrived in Hong Kong as part of a global voyage. PlanetSolar, a 31 by 15-metre white catamaran, is equipped with more than 500 sq m of solar panelling and can reach a top speed of around 15 knots, equivalent to 25kmh. 'We see there is a huge potential for solar boats,' project founder Raphael Domjan said. 'We have the technology to change and we are optimistic.'
