HELSINKI

17 APRIL 2019
TOWARDS A ZERO-EMISSION MARITIME CITY JOURNEY

 

An idea is forming... A vision of a smart, energy efficient, waterborne and carbon-neutral passenger transportation system. Right here in Helsinki.

Together with the City of Helsinki, Wärtsilä is exploring the pathway to this exciting new future. And as a key stakeholder in this wonderful city ecosystem, we invite YOU to join forces with us as we take the next steps.

What if we could introduce a zero-emission, waterborne commuter route, where carbon-neutral vessels peacefully traverse the archipelago, creating an optimised and seamless city journey…just imagine…

This event is a gathering of sharp minds to workshop ideas and to discuss the tools and technologies that will be needed to bring vision to reality.

HORIZONS is where collaboration leads to invention.

THE WORKSHOPS

200x200_CTA4

Waterborne Passenger Transportation in Helsinki


Read more Public transportation will be more commonly used for commuting in the future. We’re seeing a gradual shift away from personally owned modes of transportation towards mobility solutions that are consumed on-demand and as-a-service. We want to explore the means for rolling out an investment-friendly, environmentally sound and seaborne commuter route.

 

200x200_CTA1

Carbon-neutrality for Vessels and Ports


Read more Emissions, fuel consumption, waiting times in ports all call for our close attention. Infrastructure to support a clean energy supply chain is needed. We envision an ecosystem that powers seagoing vessels through a carbon-neutral grid, by supplying electricity for shore power with charging facilities suitable for electric and hybrid vessels. Let’s explore the key building blocks needed to pave the way towards a carbon-neutral port ecosystem.

 

200x200_CTA2

A case for Helsinki's 2020 Maritime Biennale


Read more Surely, the best way to experience a maritime biennale is via a waterborne public transportation system that is at one with the surrounding nature. What kind of operational framework is required to enable a smart, safe and ecological fleet of passenger ferries in Helsinki? How can we ensure an on-demand, zero-noise, zero GHG emissions and optimized commuter voyage through the beautiful archipelago?
