Infrastructure, vessel & asset efficiency to lower CO2

The efficiency of assets from port infrastructure and equipment to vessel design, retrofitting and means to improve fuel efficiency is estimated to enable > 15% reduction in emissions.

Many innovative solutions are emerging in this space.

Areas we are looking to explore with startups:

  • Alternative energy sources such as kites and other renewable energy sources for ports and vessels
  • Propeller, vessel flow efficiencies

  • Higher output from combustion

  • New vessel designs (including electricity and fuel cell powered vessels)

  • Sensor technology to optimize fuel consumption

  • Operational “behaviour” (fx how captains and key operations personnel are enabled and incentivised to optimize for Co2 reduction)

  • Vessel supply with 3D printing and drones to save time in port (or avoid calling all together)
