UK Marine Hydrogen Working Group – COP26

At last week’s meeting of the UK SME Maritime Working Group at the magnificent Woods Quay, our co-chair and technology champion Tim Munn announced the launch of the National Maritime UK Marine Hydrogen Working Group during DSEI and London International Shipping Week 2021

With planning well underway, the group will first meet during the COP26 – UN Climate Change Conference where a panel of leading influencers will participate in a simulcast event between audiences in Glasgow and London.

The working group is aimed at those organisations or professionals that are either already involved in or have a desire to be involved in the Hydrogen economy.

The intention of the group is to assist with the acceleration of decarbonisation by championing the use of hydrogen. To be `the` leading voice towards government and regulatory bodies and ultimately to provide more opportunities to members by making connections.

With leading influencers in the hydrogen space alongside our members, it will be a well-informed working group discussing the technical, regulatory, and financial challenges to vessel design and conversion and infrastructure development.

To register your interest in the group and attend the events contact Tim Munn or Peter Green or e:

Rolls-Royce picks British bidder for marine arm Bergen after Norwegian state veto

Rolls-Royce Holdings has picked a UK government contractor as the preferred bidder for its maritime engine manufacturing arm after an earlier sale to a Russian group was vetoed by Norwegian politicians.

It is understood that Rolls-Royce is racing to finalise the sale of Bergen Engines to Langley Holdings Plc, a Nottinghamshire-based industrial conglomerate, ahead of the FTSE-100 engineering giant’s half-year results this week.

City sources said that Rolls-Royce was in advanced talks with Langley, a relatively low-profile business which nevertheless employs more than 4,000 people.

Global Startup Heat Map reveals UK Maritime Start up as One to Watch

HonuWorx develops Technology for Sustainable Subsea Operations

Conventional maritime operations, including debris and mineral recovery, are not sustainable over the long run. Robotic subsea solutions for inspecting underwater equipment in off-shore energy infrastructure or off-shore aquaculture farms, on the other hand, improve safety and minimize cost in a sustainable manner. To this end, startups and scaleups develop autonomous robotic solutions to facilitate efficient and effective subsea operations.

UK startup HonuWorx develops technology for sustainable subsea operations. The startup offers autonomous subsea robotic solutions that have applications in off-shore energy generation, marine debris recovery, deep-sea mineral recovery, and off-shore aquaculture. Moreover, the startup’s underwater vehicles and autonomous systems enable efficient and sustainable subsea inspection thereby reducing the impact on the marine ecosystem.
