This year’s event focuses strongly on the environment, exploring smarter and greener solutions for maritime transport, energy and tech and will also celebrate women’s work in marine science and technology. It will offer delegates many ways to exchange ideas, challenge each other’s views and connect:
A trade fair, including exhibitors from across the world including a notable number from Europe, from public research teams to startups and large industrial groups
B2B meetings and networking events
Most importantly: 30+ plenary sessions and 3 keynote panel discussions all touching on this year’s central theme of green innovations – over 100 hours about the state of R&D and the future of maritime transport
Highlights: a deep dive into sustainable ports, energies & transports
Highly efficient innovative water-based Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) solutions (27th September): cooling needs are increasing and current aircon systems are energy intensive. This session will delve into the potential of SWAC as an effective eco-friendly alternative. What are the challenges facing the integration of this technology and what are the improvements required for a larger scale rollout?
Enabling Net-Zero through 5G at Sea (28th September): continuous connectivity at sea has the potential to create a safer, more secure, and environmentally sustainable global blue economy. This session will explore how increased telecommunications and data transfer at sea can contribute to smarter and low-carbon solutions.
Collaboration across marine cyber & decarbonisation (29th September): will explore how world-leading research and development can be enabled through collaboration, detailing some of the University of Plymouth’s projects including:
What opportunities can hydrogen offer? territorial maritime and port loops for renewable hydrogen, H2 production with MRE energy on port infrastructures for local needs and building hydrogen-powered ships
New Fuels: behaviour in aquatic environments & responses to accidental spills: behaviour & risks of maritime transportation for new fuels (ammonia, low sulphur fuel oils, VLSFO & ULSFO, hydrotreated vegetable oil, liquefied natural gas, etc.), whether used for ship propulsion or distribution plant supply.
