Integrated Energy Solutions to Smart and Green Shipping: 2021 Edition

Research output: Book/ReportReport


Finland has a long tradition of pioneering maritime technological innovation. The INTENS project is one of the recent examples and major showcases for that, with special focus on maritime digitalization and decarbonization towards smart and green shipping.

From its inception, INTENS has been a blessing to the consortium partners and wider Finnish maritime cluster. It has given the INTENS partners a unique opportunity to dedicate enormous efforts to jointly research and develop industry-leading novel solutions and innovations to address the major challenges faced by the global shipping industry. During the last three and a half years, the INTENS group have committed themselves to the project and achieved a long list of tangible R&D results, making the INTENS project a notable success. Interactive research-industry co-innovation has been the other crucial factor in and showcase for the INTENS' success. The collaboration within and outside of the consortium has made the INTENS project a recognized and rewarding platform, not only for the technological innovation and development, but also for the knowledge sharing and technology transfer. This book acts as part of the final report of the INTENS project and partly as the proceedings of the 2021 INTENS AFTERNOON public webinar series, featured with a collection of extended abstracts of the most recent project results. Hope this 2021 edition, together with earlier 2019 and 2020 editions, could showcase what have been achieved in the INTENS project and give a sneak peek at how digitalization and decarbonization could transform the shipping cluster.

INTENS intensifies smart and green shipping by maritime digitalization and collaboration.
