Maritime Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Conference, Bergen

09:00 - 18:00
Bergen, Norway

 

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

 

Shortly after the successful launch of our Maritime Hydrogen & Fuel Cells conference in Bergen in 2019, the world was hit by COVID-19 and we moved to delivering our portfolio of European, North American and Asian hybrid and electric events online.

 

We are now delighted to be back in person bringing together industry leaders at this year’s event in Bergen on 19 October 2021.

 

The maritime sector continues to look towards hydrogen and fuel cells as the solution to meeting the zero emission targets over the next few decades. This one-day live event will provide a European 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 two-day live conference on Maritime Hybrid & Electric in Bergen on 20-21 October 2021. Special rates are available for those wishing to attend all 3 days.
