Dutch look to a floating future

Netherlands project integrates technology, governance and ecology for new perspectives on climate-proof, large-scale floating structures The UN estimates that two out of every five people in the world live within 100km of the coast, and that 90% of megacities worldwide are vulnerable to rising sea levels due to climate change. With nowhere to expand, rapid […]

Research ship enables Royal Navy to test cutting-edge navigation system and new radars

Research ship enables Royal Navy to test cutting-edge navigation system and new radars

The Royal Navy has teamed up with Imperial College London to test a cutting-edge navigation system that could revolutionise warship navigation and is using the prototype of a ‘quantum sensor’ developed by academics at Imperial College London on its experimentation and trials ship Patrick Blackett. According to the Royal Navy, the technology has the potential […]

Lithium-CO2 batteries: the next step?

Lithium-CO2 batteries: the next step?

On paper, Li-CO2 batteries could boast far superior energy density to today’s state-of-the-art battery types – but this nascent technology requires further analysis and development, writes May Chan Lithium-CO2 (Li-CO2) batteries are a relatively new type of battery that uses CO2 as the cathode and lithium as the anode to generate electrical energy. Compared to […]

Industry collaboration is key to cleaner hulls

Industry collaboration is key to cleaner hulls

Catherine Austin, I-Tech AB and International Antifouling Conference moderator Today, marine antifouling coatings play a more important role than ever in shipping’s decarbonisation journey. The adhesion of microbial slimes, macroalgae and hard-shelled organisms such as barnacles on the underwater surfaces of a vessel can significantly increase a vessel’s fuel consumption if operating at a set […]

Methanol a potential naval fuel

Methanol a potential naval fuel

But not without design and operational adaptations Low carbon fuels and pathways to decarbonise shipping have become a major topic of conversation. In the naval sphere, the discussion is only now getting going, but a study by BMT in the UK suggests that, as in the commercial sector, methanol could offer a way forward. In […]
