Green Ship Technology Europe 2017

This year, Green Ship Technology (GST) Europe is co-locating with Shipping2030 Europe. Why? Because digital transformation and greener shipping go hand-in-hand, and as ships become smarter they also become greener, cleaner and more efficient. By combining the two conferences, delegates have access to industry leaders and learn about the ground breaking vision of digital, while also discovering the benefits of green technology for cleaner air, cleaner water and a more sustainable industry.

Green Ship Technology Europe 2017

The conference takes place March 22 – 24. We are an event sponsor and will be exhibiting with our channel partner GEA. On day 1, Christian Blæsbjerg (GEA’s Area Sales Manager – Marine & Energy, Oil & Gas) will be part of a panel discussion titled “Ballast Water Convention Ratification – what’s next for the industry?”.
