Porrima is the Roman mythological goddess of the future and protector of women. This solar-powered design boat is equipped with state-of-the-art innovations. The Porrima was launched in 2010 under the name PlanetSolar. Its aim was to demonstrate that it was possible to sail the oceans using renewable energy. This has been a success. The Porrima has a number of technologies such as Skysails, which uses wind power, seawater and solar radiation as fuel for propulsion. Another astonishing development is also making its appearance. What if we were to use the human body as a model for cleaning up our oceans? This is what Dr Emmanuel Roy and Professor Gunter Pauli have patented. The boat will be able to filter and depollute the oceans. This technology is directly inspired by the functioning of the human lungs and vascular system and will, for the first time, remove microplastics from open water bodies. In 2025, the Porrima will be presented at the Osaka World Expo. A true jewel of the future, this ship is a beacon of hope in the ongoing battle against global warming.
