With the rapid electrification of the transport sector and growing need for energy storage systems, the demand for batteries is surging. Elkem is developing a graphite-silicon composite to increase energy storage capacity in batteries.
Westcon’s hybrid battery installations enable diesel engines to function up to 20 per cent more efficiently, thereby reducing operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
STABLE has designed a stabilised platform for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, used for servicing and inspecting offshore wind farms and other offshore installations.
TAG Sensors monitor the condition of temperature-sensitive products throughout storage and delivery, thus reducing food waste and foodborne illness.
The VS1 sensor system by Disruptive Engineering enables cities to resolve safety, congestion and emissions issues.
LNT Marine has developed a simplified, flexible and efficient cargo containment system for LNG, enabling more shipyards to build carriers at reasonable cost.
EasyCrossing is a software and automation platform which supports and connects passengers, vehicles and crew on board ferries. The platform makes loading, transport and unloading more efficient – and ultimately full automated.
Nel Hydrogen’s H2Station refuelling solution dispenses hydrogen at the same capacity as a conventional petrol station, facilitating the transition to a zero-emission transport sector.
Shared autonomous vehicles are a game changer for urban mobility. Applied Autonomy helps cities and transport companies bring autonomous vehicles into their transport systems.
Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine has developed a lighter and greener propulsion unit using carbon fibre material in load carrying parts. The first deliveries have been to superyachts, but the unit is also well suited for passenger vessels and workboats.
New technology enables shuttle tankers to capture VOC emissions and use them as fuel. Teekay will put the tankers into operation in 2020.
Bike sharing has become an essential element in easing pressure on crowded public transport. Urban Sharing has created a simple and sustainable system.
The Norwegian fertiliser company Yara is building an autonomous container ship. The zero-emissions vessel could set the standard for future short sea shipping.
Moving public transport from roads to rivers can benefit crowded cities worldwide. With the zero-emission Urban Water Shuttle™, it can soon become a reality.
A scenic commuter route in North Norway now features a car and passenger ferry running on electric power and biodiesel. Carbon emissions are down 60 per cent.
Large cruise ships produce waste at the same rate as small towns. But new technology from Scanship helps ships to manage their waste – and even turn it into biofuel.
Cargo ships use more communications systems than ever before. Dualog ensures they stay connected to internet, emails and anything else – at all times.
Roughly 130 ferry routes operate year-round in the rugged fjords of Western Norway. The world’s first electric car and passenger ferry, Ampere, went into commercial operation here in 2015.
