The Motorship Propulsion & Future Fuels

The Motorship’s Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference 2021 will take place from 2-4 November in Copenhagen, Denmark and will cover a range of topics with emphasis on the next steps to 2030 and 2050; and an in-depth analysis of ship operators’ future fuel considerations with sessions featuring expert presentations from a selection of fuel and equipment manufacturers, policy makers, safety experts, shipowners, and class societies.

The 2019 Conference attracted over 150 attendees, including over 30 operators managing a combined fleet in excess of 5,100 ships who met to discuss practical, technical developments in the fields of propulsion technologies and alternative fuels across two conference streams.

Last year's programme included sessions discussing the future applications for hydrogen and ammonia, as well as the fuels which will bridge the gap from 2020 to 2050.

2021 marks the 42nd anniversary of Motorship Conferences, making Propulsion & Emissions the longest running technical conference in the maritime sector. The conference provides senior executives with a meeting place to learn, discuss and share knowledge of the latest developments in efficient propulsion technology and low flashpoint, low carbon fuels. It is a must-attend event for CEOs and technical directors from ship owning/operating and management companies, ship design and ship building senior executives, sector specialists from fuel, equipment and technology suppliers plus senior management and advisers from classification and policy-making organisations.

The conference features strong support and chairmanship from two of the sectors heavy weight associations: BIMCO, whose shipowner members represent more than 60% of global tonnage, and the German shipowner association VDR, headquartered in Hamburg and representing a fleet of 2,324 ships with a combined gross tonnage of 57.5 million.
