The final programme for Propulsion & Future Fuels 2021 is out now. This conference will take place in Hamburg, from 2-4 November.

This year’s programme will focus on energy efficiency existing ship index (EEXI); retrofitting the fleet, and current and future projects during day 1. Then today’s alternative fuels, fuel streams and alternative powering on day 2. This will be followed by a technical visit on board the M/V Copenhagen day 3.

A significant focus for this year’s conference will be Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI), and how you can meet the IMO’s targets, either through retrofitting your fleet or alternative fuel or power. All of these topics and many more will be covered during the 3-day conference.

The conference will offer 2 days of sessions and streams, including informative presentations and panel discussions and audience participation and a technical visit on the final day. Some of the key sessions include:

  • Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)
  • Retrofitting the fleet
  • LNG’s evolution
  • Methanol
  • Ammonia
  • Hydrogen and fuel cells
  • Wind-Assisted propulsion
  • Electrification

Gavin Allwright, Secretary, International Windship Association, who are a supporter of the conference. Gavin will be moderating the wind-assisted propulsion session and will be joined by:

  • Mikael Razola, Project Manager - wPCC Research Project, Wallenius Marine & Sofia Werner, Senior Researcher & Manager Strategic Research Hydrodynamics, SSPA
  • Motoki Sakagami, Marine Engineer - Technical Solution Department, ClassNK
  • Nick Contopoulos, COO, Anemoi

This panel of experts will be discussing how wind-assisted propulsion could be the answer to meeting the IMO’s EEXI by 2030.
