RoPax 9 / MAY 2019
New challenges and changes
More and more new ships are being delivered with an LNG propulsion system. The first ferry built in China for Rederi AB Gotland, the „Visborg,“ has successfully entered service and RoPax was on board! Also, Balearia has taken delivery of its first LNG fueled ferry, the „Hypatia de Alejandria,“ from Italian shipyard Visentini. Others, such as Grimaldi, continue to rely on evolving exhaust scrubber technology whilst some companies are adopting new approaches to the disposal of plastic waste so as to preserve the marine environment. In addition to these efforts, coastal short sea voyages are increasingly seeing the use of ferries that are partially or entirely powered by electric.
The smart way of funding
With this workshop we will provide North European executives with necessary insight into smart financing, primarily co-financing in the form of funding/ grant of all kind of development and/ or investment projects. We will lift the veil from the variety of potential funding items and sources, generate a clear understanding of mechanisms and tools and pave the way ahead for a more efficient financing strategy.
