Transporter Energy powering against the plastic problem
eXXpedition Around the World
Tuesday 25th June, 2019
With such a large presence of single-use plastic issues in the world’s media, Transporter Energy is delighted to be sponsoring a pioneering movement into raising awareness of these ever-growing devastating problems.
Transporter Energy has embarked on a sponsorship partnership with Emily Penn on her challenging eXXpedition all geared towards raising awareness of the dreadful impacts of single use plastic.
Emily’s eXXpedition is a run of all-female sailing voyages across the world, geared towards raising awareness of, and solutions for, the devastating environmental and health impacts of single-use plastic and toxins in the oceans.
As a company, Transporter Energy is committed to reducing its use of single use plastic to improve and retain the quality of our planet and oceans. Transporter Energy lithium-ion batteries are 100% recyclable and customers can return them free of charge to be recycled and help to preserve the wonderful wildlife for future generations. That’s why, this sponsorship of Emily’s pioneering eXXpedition is naturally a great opportunity and aligns with Transporter Energy and its lithium-ion batteries.
Transporter Energy will be sponsoring Emily’s vessel for the 2019 - 2021 eXXpedition around the world. This vital sponsorship will allow Emily to be completely focussed on the task at hand whilst being confident in the reliability of her boat, thanks to the supreme lithium-ion batteries.
For such an adventurous voyage it is essential that Emily has the highest level and most reliable power source equipment available. The lithium-ion batteries are extremely lightweight at just 13KG, a vital component for such a demanding journey, and also much safer than lead acid batteries with no risk of explosion or overcharging, a potential catastrophic issue out at seas.
Emily is co-founder of eXXpedition which was originally started in 2014 and has been focussed on its mission to raise awareness of single-use plastic and its impact on women’s health ever-since. The eXXpedition around the world voyage is set to run from October 2019 until September 2021 with 30 voyages and 300 women all covering over 38,000 nautical miles; exploring the plastics and toxins in our oceans, along with the overwhelming health impacts they are having.
The team at Transporter Energy is thrilled to be able to support such a vital eXXpedition with its market leading lithium-ion leisure batteries and is looking forward to following the news and findings as the eXXpedition moves through the 38 locations.
