UK SOLAR PIONEERS TO COLLABORATE WITH LEADER IN DECARBONISATION OF GLOBAL SHIPPING SECTOR

The company has agreed with Njord to conduct a proof of concept, followed by a pilot installation, which aims to explore the capabilities of solar tiles in the marine sector.

Through this partnership, the firm’s solar energy generation and management system, designed to capture, store, and manage clean energy at sea, in port, or at anchorage, will be validated.

Grafmarine Directors, Chris Russell, Martin Leigh, and Nigel Marc Roberts have also been in discussions with world-leading organisations to forge new relationships focused on sustainability in the sector, driving their long-term campaign for ‘fully recyclable renewable energy’.

That came after Grafmarine was shortlisted for the Technology and Innovation Award at last year’s Mersey Maritime Industry Awards having also been a finalist in the Clean Maritime Energy Award category of the National Maritime SME Awards, held in London.

“To have been nominated for two such prestigious awards is a great honour, it builds confidence and demonstrates that we are moving in the right direction,” said Martin.

“The feedback we have had to this point has been very positive, the sector has been hugely supportive and the conversations we are having centre on sustainability, not just through our technology but as an industry working to create a lasting circular economy for generations to come.”

He added: “Our target is to become one of the first fully recycled renewable energy products before 2030.
