Incat: building efficient vessels, environmentally clean transportation solutions using weight saving technology and lightweight construction methods developed over three decades which can be used to produce ships with transport efficiency well above what is on the water today.  The resulting higher efficiency means less energy demand and a simpler transition to alternative fuels and zero emission ships. While electric ships are the future, regardless of the powering & propulsion source used a lightweight ship will always be more efficient to operate.

TECO 2030 accelerates green transition in the heavy-duty application industry by delivering technology that helps reduce environmental and climate impacts. TECO 2030 is developing hydrogen fuel cells that enable ships and other heavy-duty applications become emissions-free. TECO 2030 has its roots in the TECO Maritime Group, a group supplying products along with repair and maintenance services to the international maritime industry since 1994.

TECO 2030 is developing other solutions to help the maritime industry reduce emissions, like exhaust gas cleaning and carbon capture systems for ships, to provide clients a full portfolio of onboard decarbonization technologies. TECO 2030 has a zero-emission vision using its industry experience as a key to achieve successful transitions to a sustainable future for heavy-duty applications.

Cruise & Ferry Review aims to be the best supplier of news and insight into the global passenger shipping industries via a bi-annual print magazine, website and app. Content covers both the cruise and ferry sectors, providing an in-depth look into the areas of building and refurbishment, marine operations, onboard experience, interior design, ports and destinations, and more.

First launched in the early 1990s, Cruise & Ferry Review was acquired by publishers Tudor Rose in 2011, whose investments have transformed the brand into the definitive resource for decision makers in the cruise and ferry industries. Tudor Rose has since created the annual Cruise & Ferry Interiors and Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning publications. The former celebrates the work of the individuals and companies involved in creating interiors onboard today’s passenger ships, while the latter explores how cruise line executives, destination experts, deployment specialists and port authorities create compelling itineraries.
