Break Out: Damen, Skoon and electric ships: the future of maritime transport! – Damen Shipyards / Skoon Energy B.V.

September 6, 2018, 18:30 - 19:30


Damen Shipyards and Skoon recently teamed up. Today representatives of both companies will take you into the innovative world of full electric shipping: the future of maritime transport! Join a.o. Skoon’s founder Peter Paul van Voorst tot Voorst for this session!

The recently announced partnership between Damen Shipyards and Skoon aims at introducing electric ships on a large scale, this session will focus on the advantage of the partnership, the challenges with full electric ships and concrete examples of how this is becoming reality! Both representatives will be available for questions and ideas from your side.

90% of world transport is done by ships, mostly driven by fossil fuel engines. A sustainable solution for these vessels is necessary. Ships often stay in service for 25-30 years. This means that all current or new-build vessels will have to be converted to create a solution for clean propulsion.

Skoon Energy will manage the infrastructure of swappable batteries through a digital platform, enabling customers to view, order and track their Skoonboxes in real-time. Providing a safe network of reliable batteries, charged with 100% green energy, Skoon will contribute to the transition to clean energy.

Skoon Energy is a start-up with the mission to accelerate the energy transition, starting with maritime transport.
