CE Delft To Present Preliminary Findings Of EU Wind Propulsion Study

Dagmar Nelissen, Senior researcher and consultant at CE Delft, will present the preliminary findings of the EU DG Clima study ‘Analysis of market potentials and market barriers for wind propulsion technologies for ships’, at next week’s Natural Propulsion Seminar.

This is a significant study which was commissioned with the general objective to provide support to the European Commission to explore how further support can be provided to ensure that wind propulsion technologies are deployed in the shipping sector.

CE Delft has carried out numerous studies on climate policy for maritime shipping, commissioned by national and international government agencies and by organisations like the IMO and the European Commission.

The Natural Propulsion Seminar, May 24, is held as part of BlueWeek, which is an independent, dedicated and free event hosted by the Maritime Research Institute of the Netherlands (MARIN), where the industry, academics and institutions can come together to discuss the latest R&D initiatives, regulations and projects. The schedule also includes seminars on the challenges and innovative solutions for offshore wind and blue technology at sea.

The seminar is free to attend, register here:  http://www.blueforum.org
