As part of its Green Industrial Revolution, the UK Government has set out a roadmap of activity and investment to support the transition to net zero carbon. The aim is to support difficult-to-decarbonise industries, like shipping, to become greener through research projects for zero-emission vessels.
Expleo’s vision is to develop a range of power and propulsion solutions for all vessel sizes and types, selecting the optimal energy carrier(s)/ fuels and green technology that complements a specific vessels operational profile. The realisation of the problem has brought to light that not one solution fits all.
In this whitepaper, we discuss the challenges and opportunities of a green transformation in the industry. Expleo is investigating alternative energy sources to diesel and diesel-electric propulsion and developing an AI neural network to optimise fuel consumption.
