Tuesday 23 January 2024

 


A one-day intensive course which looks at the potential benefits of using alternative fuels in the marine industry – and the reality of where the industry is now, and what practical steps will have to be taken to deliver the energy transition. The pros and cons of all the key alternative fuels will be weighed up, with a detailed focus on production, transportation, storage and delivery.

This is a ground-breaking course on the future of bunkering, so it will have plenty to offer both industry veterans and newcomers.


Delegate Pass: £350


The price of this event includes lunch, refreshments and course materials.
