Periscope Partners learn from results generated during the LeanShips project
Since its launch on 1 May 2015, the LeanShips (Low Energy And Near to Zero Emissions Ships) project [https://www.leanships-project.eu/home/] has been investigating the effectiveness and reliability of energy saving and emission reduction technologies at full scale. The project with its 46 partners, including equipment manufacturers, shipyards and shipowners from 12 EU member countries and one associated Member State supports developments that make new and existing vessels more efficient and less polluting.
Periscope Partners, Center for Maritime Technologies and Netherlands Maritime Technology, are also partners in Lean Ships. The final conference for Lean Ships is open to the public will take place at the SS Rotterdam in Rotterdam on 17th of April, 2019. With a total funding of € 15.8 M, seven demonstrators were developed during the four-year project period, including a retrofit strategy for cargo ships, a high-speed diesel engine converted for methanol operation or a new-generation tug with two LNG engines. The developed innovations as well as the current use for fuel and CO2 savings and reduction of air pollutants will be presented at the final conference at the SS Rotterdam.
CMT has invited Periscope partners to attend to learn from the results of this important project.
