Maritime Hydrogen & Fuel Cells, Europe

07 December 2020 - 08 December 2020
09:00 - 14:00
CET (08:00-13:00 GMT)

Realising the potential of hydrogen & fuel cells in the maritime sector

 

To complement the launch of our hugely successful webinar week series, Riviera’s 2020 conference programme has moved online, allowing our global communities to continue to connect, network and gather knowledge whilst remaining safe until our live conference programme returns. Networking is a key element of our virtual conferences with ample opportunity to arrange your meetings, keep on top of your daily routine, and still have some personal time.

 

After the successful launch event in Bergen in 2019, Riviera Maritime Media’s Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Conference will return as a virtual event, bringing together industry leaders who are adopting hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for maritime applications, and driving this dynamic sector with a focus on developments in Europe.

 

Interest in hydrogen and fuel cells as an alternative clean fuel for maritime transport continues to grow exponentially, with many professionals seeing it as the solution to meeting the zero emission targets over the next few decades. This 2-day online event will provide a global overview of the sector, showcase the latest advances in the technology, consider potential applications and provide participants with a better understanding of the long-term benefits of hydrogen and fuel cells.

 

Delegates will include hydrogen fuel cell manufacturers, engine manufacturers, systems integrators, naval architects, vessel owners and operators, industry associations, classification societies, analysts, and industry suppliers.

Following this event, Riviera are hosting a three-day virtual conference on Maritime Hybrid & Electric. Further information can be found here
