MarRI-UK announces 1.3m awarded to a consortium led by Port of London Authority to enable Smart Maritime Land Operations for the Maritime Sector
A consortium of 8 organisations (1 Port, 2 SMEs, 3 Higher Education Institute, and 2 Research Technology Organisation) along with other supporting organisations, led by Port of London Authority have been awarded £1.3m as part of the Smart Maritime Land Operations Call, a Maritime Research and Innovation UK (MarRI-UK) initiative supported by the Department for Transport (DfT). The grant will help develop a national hydrogen highway network, integrating land, sea and port.
Robert Courts, Maritime Minister, said:
“If we’re to usher in a cleaner era for British maritime and achieve our world-leading decarbonisation goals, we must pioneer the use of new and innovative technologies at our ports.
Supporting the building of a state-of-the-art hydrogen network will enable us to reduce emissions, create green jobs across the UK and consolidate our position as international leaders in green maritime.”
