This event is hosted and arranged by William Vine, the Group Organiser for Winchester Cafe Scientifique.
Basingstoke IVC science enthusiasts invite you to this talk on a very interesting subject. The subject of this evenings talk is “Setting course for zero-carbon shipping” delivered by Dr Laurie Wright – Southampton Solent University.
WinCafeSci is Online, so if you missed a talk or would like to go over some of it again you can watch here on our YouTube channel.
Your participation provides the motivation to continue. Suggestions for future speakers are welcome.

While shipping is the most efficient mode of transport per distance travelled, if the carbon emissions from the shipping industries were combined this would rank as the sixth biggest country for emissions in the world.? Until recently shipping has been largely absent from discussions on tackling climate change and air pollution. Now, policy makers, operators, owners, and others in the maritime industry are starting to take action.
Solent University is part of a research and innovation collaboration to look at the options for green technology in the maritime industry. The ultimate goal is the introduction of low-carbon shipping technologies in a very conservative sector. This project will pilot the following:
- Construction of a CTV (crew transfer vessel) with hydrogen propulsion.
- Retrofitting of a barge with a hydrogen-based propulsion system.
- Construction of a new passenger vessel with hydrogen propulsion system.
- Installation of hybrid configuration in a small inspection vessel.
- Development of a hydrogen fuel cell module for use in various types of ships.
- Concept of hydrogen bunker facilities for a port.
Dr Laurie Wright – Southampton Solent University
Dr Laurie Wright is an Associate Professor of Marine Sustainability and founding director of the Centre for Marine Sustainability at Solent University. An expert in maritime decarbonisation, he leads a multidisciplinary team delivering research and innovation to understand and address the global challenges facing our oceans. Taking a systems approach, research in the Centre is discovering clean alternatives to fossil fuels used in ships, investigating the impacts of marine pollution, and studying the safety of those working at sea.
We will open the meeting from 7:00pm so people can settle in, chat etc. There will be a break between talk and Q&A when people can chat etc. It's not the same as live but closer than I thought
We will stream the event on YouTube Live Please bear with us as we adapt to the challenge of broadcasting live events. There may be glitches or poor sound quality.
