One of the R&D themes in the Zero Emission Marine (ZEM) ecosystem focuses on developing automated and optimised operations on fleet and vessel level to increase the efficiency of maritime operations by adapting new intelligent digital technologies. This will result in reductions in fuel consumption and emissions, and increased level of safety, reliability and compliance.
Technologies enabling the usage of green fuels is at the core of one of the research themes in the ZEM ecosystem. We discussed with Kaj Portin, who leads the activities at Wärtsilä to find ways how their engines and systems will be able to flexibly use green fuels in the near future.
Business Finland has granted major funding for the MASCOT partnership project which responds to materials performance challenges presented by the emerging CO2-neutral processes of circular economy and hydrogen technologies and generates the knowledge base essential for their reliability and competitiveness.
A virtual event brought together a diverse group of close to 150 stakeholders who share a mission to develop sustainable technology solutions reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the marine sector by 60% by 2030.
Wärtsilä launches a world-class research, development and innovation project to promote Zero Emission Marine together with nearly 200 operators. Business Finland has granted the project EUR 20 million in funding in the challenge competition for leading companies.
