Short introduction of the seminar
The use of fuel cells in the maritime sector is currently gaining momentum as seen in the development contract from Norwegian Public Roads Administration for a 2021 fuel cell ferry and the plans from Viking Cruises to develop the first hydrogen cruise ship.
The seminar gathers distinguished speakers from all over the world presenting newest research and development activities focusing on materials, components and system aspects.
- There are some slots available for giving presentations at the seminar. Please contact Dr. Magnus Thomassen ()
A limited number of seats are available to attend the seminar given on a first come – first serv-ed basis. Event is free of charge.
