|MarRI-UK is not just an organisation, but a network of many different industrial organisations, universities and not-for-profit institutions. Here are a few highlights from our members over the last three months.Ecomar Propulsion Ltd
Ecomar Propulsion are proud to annouce they have demonstrated the feasibility of zero emission offshore survey vessels.
Ecomar Propulsion unveiled ground-breaking results of a research and development project which proves the technical and economic feasibility of achieving zero emission operations in offshore survey and research vessels (OSRVs).
The project which started in January 2023 involved eight partners and investigated innovative ship designs and integration with energy efficient hybrid drive train systems to increase overall ship efficiency resulting in significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and accelerating the transition to zero emission fuels. The results were presented at The Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition final showcase on 16 September at the Department for Transport’s Clean Maritime Day at London International Shipping Week.

£5.4million project aims to develop world’s largest network of electric workboats
The University of Plymouth has strengthened its position at the forefront of clean maritime innovation thanks to a new initiative that will deploy the world’s largest network of electric workboats.
The Zero Emission Network of Workboats (ZENOW) project has received £4.1 million in grant funding from the UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions (UK SHORE) and Innovate UK as part of its Zero Emissions Vessels and Infrastructure competition (ZEVI).
It brings the total funding secured by the project to £5.4 million and marks a step change in zero emission workboat operations, delivering commercial clean maritime technology.To read more, click hereBMT
