Maritime Hybrid & Electric (incorporating Hydrogen & Fuel Cells), Asia 26 - 27 February 2020

Maritime Hybrid & Electric (incorporating Hydrogen & Fuel Cells), Asia

Achieving significant reductions in fuel consumption, maintenance costs and emissions


In recent years the maritime industry has seen an increasing interest in the development of hybrid-electric vessels. Vessel owners and operators have started exploring the full potential of electric propulsion and how the technology could save fuel, lower emissions and reduce maintenance costs.

This two-day conference will provide attendees with a solid understanding of the technologies involved and how vessel owners and operators can benefit from its use in a number of maritime applications. Discussions will focus on how Asia is currently making inroads into developing and using hybrid-electric technologies.

Riviera has led the maritime industry by being one of the very first organisations to launch a maritime hybrid-electric conference in Bergen Norway in September of 2019. Riviera will now bring its experience to Asia where companies will benefit significantly from the case studies and the technical content that has already proven to be a great success.
