Candela Secures €24M Investment for Foiling Vessels

Candela Secures €24M Investment for Foiling Vessels

The shift to zero emission boats and ships has been hampered by the enormous energy consumption and correspondingly low range of conventional electric boats. Flying on computer-guided underwater wings -- known as hydrofoils -- that reduce energy consumption by 80% compared to conventional planing craft, Candela's vessels soar above the waves in silence with 2-3 times longer endurance than the best conventional electric powerboats.

Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

The cruise industry's first hybrid powered ship is set to debut summer 2023 as part of Royal Caribbean Group's ultra-luxury brand Silversea Cruises. The new class of ships, known as 'Project Evolution,' will operate using a trio of power sources including a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines using liquefied natural gas as the main fuel. This hybrid solution, using fuel cell technology, allows the ship to be free of local emissions while at port.

UK Calls for Zero Global Shipping Emissions by 2050

UK Calls for Zero Global Shipping Emissions by 2050

Marking the start of the greenest London International Shipping Week yet, the UK backs a world-leading absolute zero target for international shipping emissions by 2050, as announced by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps. This target, which would need to be agreed through the International Maritime Organization, would be a significant increase of ambition for the sector, which is currently accountable for 3% of global emissions.
