March 17 at 13:0015:00

Event Navigation

What if we could swap out massive existing fuel tanks with a small briefcase filled with nuclear power and sail with zero emissions, without bunkering, for 30 years? Is this the future of clean maritime operations?

In this Tech update, NCE Maritime CleanTech invites all cluster partners to find out more about the usage of nuclear in the maritime sector.
