On 30 and 31 August, the World Maritime University (WMU) invites you to a two-day international seminar in Malmö, Sweden. On the agenda is the decarbonisation of shipping using green technologies.
Argo-Anleg is already working on this topic as part of the EU project Seanergy and will be represented in Malmö by Managing Director Jan Andreas: “I’m looking forward to meeting up again with numerous Seanergy project partners – and of course to discussing this important topic on a larger scale with colleagues from all over the world.”
The UN Climate Change Conference “COP26” gave a clear mandate for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and moving away from the unabated use of fossil fuels. It also underlined the need for global capacity building and cooperation in technological development and implementation to ensure that this challenge can be met on a global scale.
The seminar in Malmö is to bring together representatives of the International Maritime Organization and the EU. The Seanergy project started in October 2021 and includes the consortium partners: World Maritime University, IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, RINA, Fundación Valenciaport, Ennshafen OÖ GmbH, The Diktyo, SL, Δίκτυο ΔΑΦΝΗ / DAFNI Network, Future Proof Shipping, Eco Imagination, ATPERSON, ZER0-E Engineering and Argo-Anleg GmbH.
In addition to the 11 European partners, the World Maritime University (WMU) is also collaborating on the project’s goal of developing a master plan to help ports become emission-free by 2050. This will present solutions to the challenges of the energy transition in ports. The master plan will serve as an information aggregator and will develop guidelines that will enable all port stakeholders, regardless of their geographical context, to assess, plan and implement the necessary activities to transform ports into clean energy hubs.
During the two days of this seminar, we will discuss green technologies and ways to foster global cooperation and capacity building in the field of maritime decarbonisation. On the second day, the seminar will focus on a regional workshop for the Baltic and North Seas, which is part of the Seanergy project activities and aims to gather feedback from relevant port cluster stakeholders to support EU ports and policy makers in decarbonising the sector.
