Mole Energy onboard with Foundation Expeditions

Mole Energy is incredibly proud to have supported Ocean Warrior’s Foundation Expeditions. The team included novice explorers, naturalists, citizen scientists and full-time scientists. All were dedicated to climate science through the monitoring of planet pollution, climate and the gathering of vital oceanic data.

Led by explorer Jim McNeill, the Foundation Expeditions set sail for the Svalbard archipelago, in September, on the SV Linden.  They travelled to the extremes where scientists seldom visit and using the lightest of carbon footprints. Jim has worked with the BBC on productions such as Frozen Planet and Natural World series.

Covering between 2,000 and 4,000 nautical miles, the expedition set out to prepare the SV Linden for Ocean Warrior’s Resolute Expedition in 2024.

Resolute Expedition will depart in June 2024 and will go on to survey a 10,000 nautical mile transect each year for the next 10 years. Over that time they will measure, benchmark, monitor and report on changes they discover in the oceans explored.

Lucy said: “Foundation Expedition was incredible. Mole Energy’s support has meant we’ve been able to test some of our scientific equipment and get to grips with this ship to understand exactly what we can do over the next 10 years.”
