Waterborne Electrification Adventures

Port House, Antwerp

Event address

Zaha Hadidplein 1
2030 Antwerpen

For 4 years, the SEABAT project (Solutions for largE bAtteries for waterBorne trAnsporT) worked on a full electric marine battery concept.

Electrification is a key technology to reduce maritime emissions. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) wants to reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions from maritime transport by 50% by 2050 compared to 2008, and even pursues efforts towards phasing them out entirely.

However, maritime electric propulsion is not yet mature. Maritime batteries are considerably more expensive than automotive batteries and integrated solutions for ships have not yet started to penetrate the markets.

SEABAT takes the challenge head-on to substantially reduce the costs of large waterborne transport battery systems by developing a full-electric maritime hybrid concept that combines high-energy and high-power storage cells.

During this event will present our findings and look forward to the future. Together, we will navigate the complexities of electrification. 

Participation is free of charge, please register in advance - we have limited space. Registration will close Oct. 31st, 2024.
