Introduction

Passenger comfort and safety, fuel efficiency and sustainability are top of mind in the cruise and ferry market. For operators, energy efficiency is vital to their business. Not only from a cost perspective but also to meet the highest service levels for their guests. And to do so without harming the lifeline of their business: the ocean and river environment.

Why should I attend?

Energy consumption of a ship is a significant contributor to the carbon footprint of cruise and ferry operators. In this Europort Masterclass experts from both cruise and ferry markets, share their perspective on the importance of sustainability for the growth of their industry. Why does the carbon footprint matter to ship owners? And what solutions in terms of propulsion, energy management and route optimization can reduce this?

During the network lunch you will have the opportunity to interact with these experts and other attendees.

Who should attend?

Representatives working in the cruise, ferry and river cruise industry on technical and sustainability affairs. Either working for an operator, shipyard or key supplier. Such as technical and sustainability directors, fleet managers, superintendents, naval architects, project managers, surveyors, purchasers, port authorities.
