The Europort Masterclasses are jointly organized by Rotterdam Ahoy and Netherlands Maritime Technology.
Naval innovations as source of inspiration
Tuesday 5 November, 14:30 – 18:00, incl. network reception
Today, governments around the world invest increasingly in their naval forces. From surface ships and submarines to smaller drone ships; new solutions that smarten maintenance or increase the safety of personnel. Throughout history, governmental organisations and dedicated defence corporations have been the driving force behind important breakthroughs. Innovations that crossed the boundaries of the naval sector and proved tremendous value for commercial shipping.
Maritime solutions for offshore renewable energy
Wednesday 6 November, 10:00 – 13:30, incl. network lunch
Apart from offshore wind, other sources of renewable energy can be generated offshore. According to the Blue Growth strategy of the European Commission, estimates show that ocean energy, such as wave and tidal energy, could meet up to 10% of the EU’s electricity demand by 2050. In order to generate both wind- and ocean energy in a cost-efficient manner, innovation in ship concepts, design and operations are key.
