NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN 2023: Workshop Objectives
With safety always front and centre, NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN highlights effective solutions for workboats, ferries, patrol craft, military vessels, SAR, wind farm support, super yachts and unmanned craft. With focus on sub 24m vessels, topics are also relevant for 25m to 100m vessels plus the ports and harbours they operate from. The workshop combines international marine energy expertise with dynamic Q&A sessions. End-users and industry come together to identify viable solutions and technology readiness levels. NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN focusses on viable Hydrogen technology that is available today or in the very near future. The unique knowledge gained from NEXT GEN workshops helps to shape real world decisions, from modifying in-service powertrains to shaping requirements for next generation vessels. Attendees include commercial, government and military organisations, boat builders, engine manufacturers, technology developers, engineers, naval architects, class societies and legislators.
