Planet Solar, World's Largest Solar Boat MS Turanor

Monday July 27, 2011 I witnessed one of the greatest Filipino Achievement in the world History. Planet Solar, World's Largest Solar Boat named "MS Turanor" in Philippine Navy HQ in Manila Roxas Blvd Bay Area. Welcomed by VP Binay and representatives from Sunpower a US based solar company. 38, 000 Sunpower high-efficient Maxeon Solar Cells. Now it has solar plant in the Philippines that supplies 3 million of solar plates per week shipped all over the world. You may see the video and more pics of MS Turanor at

It has a record in Guinness defined as the fastest solar power boat that circumference the whole world. I visit the boat facility walking beside the VP, diplomats, sun power officials and 4 star coastguard. The escorts and people from Ogilvy was stopping me because I'm on 2nd media batch boat tour. Whew! I feel I'm the President blogger at this time. Marching in fronts of military boarding this biggest solar boat that i was daydreaming off came into reality. Vice President Jejomay Binay said "he's proud to be a member of the Philippine Marines. Also he was amazed on how this big boat managed by 4 foreign crews looking at us beside the boat.

Anyways I meet an old fella Phil Navy Capt Amba (wish your 3 suns gets 4 stars same with my Uncle) on ceremony because we worked before with my Uncle in the US Navy. We talked about the latest retirement of Adm Andamag and the mission we worked with before. Supplying medical and humanitarian mission to Philippine provinces and tragic Leyte landslide. Also with US Navy top gun brave lieutenant Adam Cole of Join the Journey.

Before I end this winners place blog winning journey imagine now how fast technology go? Also how it became more fuel or energy efficient. As well as environment friendly  "no more oil spill" in the name of MS Turanor. Sailing connecting continents using ideal equipment and technology beyond boarders.
