Maritime transport is currently responsible for more than 3% of global CO2 emissions, and the total emissions of this sector continues to increase and are expected to reach 5% by 2050. Currently, and only in the EU, maritime transport is responsible for the emission of 4 % of greenhouse (GHG) gases. Maritime transport is thus facing a considerable pressure for efficiency and innovative solutions, not only in terms of GHG emissions but also in terms of intelligence and life cycle management.
In order to contribute to a more sustainable, safe, intelligent and managed maritime transport, this project aims to develop a Zero Emissions prototype for passenger transport, equipped with high efficiency navigation systems (i.e., foils) that further reduce its footprint at the same times brings added value in operational and financial perspectives (i.e., less energy consumption for navigation, less charging cycles, increased battery lifespan, increased speed, less time per trip, more trips per day,…).
This project aims to achieve several innovative developments that push further the efficiency and de-risking in the maritime passenger transport industry through the development and adaptation of solutions to the concrete requirements and constraints of the technologies underneath.
This partnership between SMEs and research institutions from Portugal and Norway is extremely important for the interconnection, creation and exploration of added value, by joining complementary competencies to address the specific needs of products aimed for the in global markets.
