The Energy Observer’s first port of call in Scotland was at Peterhead Harbour – taking in the north east of Scotland as part of its European tour, proving that Hydrogen can fuel the future! The crew of the maverick vessel were met onshore by a HyTrEc2 Toyota Mirai belonging to Aberdeenshire Council.
