MSE asked to join KTN Innovation Network on Decarbonising Ports and Harbours

Jonathan Williams, CEO of Marine South East, has been asked to join the KTN Innovation Network on Decarbonising Ports and Harbours as a result of MSE's expertise and growing portfolio of projects in this area.

The Innovation Network aims to convene a community of knowledge to explore the challenge of reducing emissions which lead to global climate change and poor air quality arising from sea faring port activities. The group will be addressing the commitments of the Industry Maritime 2050 plan and the challenges of decarbonising ports and harbours by catalysing cross sector activity.

Marine South East is currently working on a number of relevant projects in this area including:

PESO (Port Energy Systems Optimisation) which is a collaborative project, part funded by Innovate UK. PESO is looking to address port decarbonisation and air quality challenges by integrating novel battery technology into the port energy network.

More information can found at the following link:

ICE: The 'Intelligent Community Energy' project is aiming to design and produce an innovative low-carbon energy system (smart grid) to signficantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of isolated territories, including ports.

FLO-MAR: Funded from MarRI-UK's Clean Maritime Call, this project is looking to assess the feasibility of using innovative flow batteries in vessels to enable zero-emission marine propulsion and auxiliary power. The project will investigate how the design of electric and hybrid ships, from ferries through to tugs and wind farm vessels, can be optimised to accommodate flow batteries and assess the advantages this technology offers in comparison with existing lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen fuel-cells.

CLINSH: Clean Inland Shipping is looking at the technical and socio-economic aspects of the inland waterways transport system. Marine South East is leading the activity focused on shore power to ships. The CLINSH project aims to demonstrate that harmful emissions can be reduced under various scenarios for deployment of onshore power supplies.
