ShipZERO 26.5 On the 20th of June in Amsterdam

By: D.Doaa Darwish

On the 20th of June in Amsterdam, we will be hosting some of the most innovative first-movers in the zero-emissions shipping industry to present and discuss cutting-edge technologies and initiatives in the sector.

The programme for ShipZERO 26.5:

09:00 – 12:00 ZESTAs AGM – members and associate members only 

12:00 Networking lunch – everybody welcome!

12:45 ShipZERO26.5: “We’ve Got the Power!”

12:45  Opening Address TBD

13:00 – 14:15 Presentations and discussion

  • Drift Energy – Ben Medland – Meng, CEO Founder – Harvesting Green Hydrogen at Sea – leaving nothing behind but oxygen
  • BLUE Technology – Brian Boserup, CEO and Founder Blue Technology – Combining wind propulsion, power generation, and green hydrogen to achieve true zero emissions on vessel Liberty

14:15 – 15:15 Panel discussion on raising capital for innovation funding. Moderated by Stuart MacDonald – Managing Partner at Bride Valley Partners – the panel will be followed by a Q&A session.

15:15 – 15:45 Tea break

15:45 Roundtable, brainstorming, and open floor discussion

Pin the project on the Navigational Chart to True Zero – all together now!

Suggested discussions points;

  • Finance – How do we overcome the challenge without regulation? Consumer behavior? Are people willing to pay more?
  • How can the legal community accelerate the process by anticipating issues that may arise from new tech and new regulations?
  • Projects – what can we work together on to accelerate the transition?
  • Collaboration for acceleration – how can we leverage our combined momentum?
  • Equipment/technology
  • How can our combined efforts accelerate the development and market availability of ZEST?
  • What’s coming online and how can we work together to accelerate bringing innovation to market?
  • What have we got that’s ready to go?
  • What’s in the pipeline?
  • “ShipZERO27 – Global Solutions” – what’s next?
  • Bringing Cargo owners into the discussion
  • How can we address the global availability of ZES technology and fuels?
  • How can we leverage COP27 to make True Zero a reality?

17:30 – 19:30 Collaboration Cocktails! They are thrilled to be hosting ShipZERO 26.5 at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam, one of the city’s leading venues just minutes from the Central Station – and overlooking the Port of Amsterdam.

ShipZERO venue

This state-of-the-art events space is a natural fit for ZESTAs – an Association made up of change-makers and innovators.

Indeed, one of the reasons for hosting ShipZERO 26.5 at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ is the building’s superb track record on sustainability.

Not only was sustainability front and centre throughout the design and construction phases of this exceptional space, but innovative and intelligent use of tech means energy efficiency is maximized on a daily basis. The shared values and parallels with ZESTAs and our membership is evident

What did ‘Ship ZERO°’ deliver?

‘Ship ZERO°’ laid out a course to true zero-emissions using the waypoints of existing technologies and innovations, combining perspectives and experiences from a wide range of industry stakeholders to plot a course through the stormy seas of regulation, finance, new technological developments, and fuel uncertainty.

The first deliverable was a policy paper which was shared with COP26 delegates. The final deliverable will be a collaborative and interactive navigational chart (‘Charging to True Zero°’), which will be shared with COP26 delegates, shipping and energy industry stakeholders, as well as delivered to the IMO, in both written report and film formats.

The purpose of the ZESTAs is to promote rapid and large-scale uptake of Zero Emissions Ship Technology (ZEST). Zero Emissions mean zero GHG emissions at the point of use on the vessel with minimal upstream impacts.

By combining zero-emission technologies, we achieve zero emissions at a shipboard level faster. With today’s technologies we can achieve fully zero-emissions now, particularly on smaller return to base vessels, and drastically reduce emissions on larger ocean-going vessels with more complicated operational profiles.
