The partnership will help progress the principles enshrined in the new EU Fit for 55 policies under the EU Green Deal to achieve zero emission transport sector targets.

The announcement was made jointly by the three collaborators during the signature of an MoU at Nor Shipping 2022. The first major international gathering of maritime and ocean industry leaders since the global pandemic.

The partnership will explore several areas for cooperation including research, innovation, and commercialisation to develop innovative technologies regarding “on board swappable energy sources for ships” aiming to contribute to decarbonisation of the maritime sector and supporting fulfilment of the EU strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy by 2050 – A Clean Planet for All.

It aims to strengthen cooperation in areas to promote and develop on board innovative swappable energy source standards for existing and future battery types, Hydrogen FC, liquid energy sources, and integrated/interchangeable applications supported by digital powertrain integration technologies for next generation boats and ships.

NAVTEK Naval Technologies’ General Manager, Ferhat Acuner said:

“Today’s announcement marks a new era of cooperation with our closest collaborators, in which we commit to using new innovative technologies to develop world-wide new standards for future fossil fuel free, resilient and smart maritime sector for years to come.”

“We are exceptionally proud with our state of art ZEETUG 30, world’s first fully battery power tugboat, that we developed jointly with our invaluable technology partners that won three prestigious international awards”.
