Our technology now fully commercialised and is making a real difference to the commercial operations of shipping as well as helping solve the world’s largest existential threat – the climate crisis.

We are seeing a significant update of our technology in the market, demonstrating the flexibility of our design for all vessel types and the significant fuel and emissions savings the technology can make as shipping decarbonises, but also looks to make cost-effective investments.
