SWISS RE CORPORATE SOLUTIONS AND SOLAR IMPULSE: SHAPING THE FUTURE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

At Swiss Re Corporate Solutions we admire the risk-taking that comes with a pioneering spirit. As a commercial insurer, we are passionate about using our expertise to help others manage complex risks and to insure what others consider uninsurable. We are proud to be the sole insurance provider and official partner of Solar Impulse, an aircraft that can fly day and night on solar power alone, without any fuel.

Round-the-world flight continues

In March 2015, Solar Impulse started the first round-the-world solar flight from Abu Dhabi. The route included stop-overs in Oman, India, Myanmar, China and Japan. By July 2015 Solar Impulse reached Hawaii after crossing the Pacific and breaking the record for longest flight in a solar airplane. Its journey resumed in April this year. It is now attempting to become the first solar plane to circumnavigate the globe.
