Cape Horn Engineering proudly participated in the Innovate UK programme, (GBIP) focused on Norway Clean Maritime. A superb action packed agenda for the week explored many exciting opportunities for UK-Norway collaborations, with a focus on developing key partnerships and understanding the infrastructure required to enable the Green Shipping Corridors.
We represented the UK maritime Industry at Nor-Shipping 2023 in Oslo, where the future of shipping and decarbonisation were prime concerns. Many innovations and net-zero emissions power generating solutions were showcased. We were delighted to meet new potential clients and also some of our established customers, and received lots of interest for our CFD services and technology solutions to help accelerate shipping decarbonisation.
“The programme offered a fantastic opportunity to meet with technology developers and ship design companies, to discuss EEXI improvements with Wind Propulsion Technology (WPT) and Energy Saving Devices and to see how we can assist with testing potential solutions for their shipping vessels.
Our advanced simulation workﬂow was also of great interest. This compares the efficiency of WPT and provides accurate CFD analysis of potential savings and full-scale performance predictions to help achieve reduced emission targets. The highly complex simulations can model both the hydrodynamic and aerodynamic effects of the whole ship including its propulsion, simultaneously in a single simulation.
Our renowned experience and expertise to achieve decarbonisation is world class and we are excited to develop these new opportunities”, comments Dr.-Ing. Rodrigo Azcueta.
