We are all set and ready for METS Trade Show, come and visit us on stand 07.330E.
Our Managing Director, Ken Wittamore will be speaking at the E-nnovationLAB on the 19th of November from 2:45-3:15 pm.
“Living with Lithium – selecting and managing lithium-ion batteries”
Selecting, configuring and managing these batteries requires knowledge and care; Ken will provide an insight into exactly what this means.
Also, he will be on the panel for “How green are we a year on?” alongside some extremely high-profile individuals from prominent shipyards.
Ken and the panel of experts will explore how the quest for more sustainable boating has progressed in the last 12 months.
‘How Green is Green in the Leisure Marine World?’ was the theme of a panel discussion that took place at the InnovationLab stage during last year’s METSTRADE Show.
A panel of well qualified technical experts discussed the current situation, peeked into the future, and answered several interesting questions from the audience, about how we compare with other industries on environmental sustainability issues. Subjects covered included; design for disassembly and life cycle assessment, material selection for better recyclability at end-of-life, Green Governance plans across the entire design and build aspects of yacht construction, the status of electric / hybrid propulsion systems, and developments on energy storage solutions.
By definition, all of these disciplines are in developmental phases, and judging by the number of questions that came from the audience last year, there is no doubt that 12 months later, there will be plenty of interest, progress to report on, and a few debatable points to ponder!
