The organisers of London International Shipping Week (LISW) are delighted to welcome CORE POWER as a Gold Sponsor of LISW2023.
CORE POWER has rapidly emerged in recent years as the global frontrunner in the development of new nuclear technologies for the maritime sector.
Headquartered in London, CORE POWER partners with leading international power, engineering and nuclear innovation companies to deliver durable zero-emission energy for floating industrial production and deep-sea shipping.
The theme of LISW23, ‘Reframing risk in a complex market’, is tailor-made for the concept of a union between the maritime and nuclear industries; both sectors need to transition over the coming years and have complementary attributes. The UK Government has also committed to both sectors that it wants to achieve a series of ambitious targets. New, advanced nuclear technology at sea is the catalyst that can put both these targets in the crosshairs.
The skills and expertise based in the United Kingdom are well placed to facilitate this union. CORE POWER has set out a future-oriented strategy plan for advanced nuclear power to be deployed for UK-flagged vessels. There would also be opportunities for vessels to be operated by highly-qualified British seafarers, trained in the UK with ships fitted out, built, serviced, inspected and classed in specialist UK yards and facilities, then insured and financed through the City of London.
Mikal Bøe, Founder and CEO at CORE POWER, said: “We are delighted to be a significant sponsor of London International Shipping Week for LISW23. London sits at the heart of the global shipping industry and LISW provides that all-important forum for showing the world that it is from here many of the most important catalysts for a new era of ocean transportation is emerging. Only a few nations develop a home-flagged fleet and credibly pass the robust technical and security regulations required now in place to make such specialist vessels a success. This is why we place such a value on the shipping ecosystem that London and the UK provides, and why we are excited to play our part in getting behind LISW23.”
As part of its sponsorship, CORE POWER will host an international symposium on New Nuclear for Maritime in London on Thursday 14 September 2023. Further details to be announced in due course.
Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, co-owner, and co-founder of LISW23, is delighted that CORE POWER is sponsoring the week: “We are particularly pleased to welcome a company at the cutting edge of zero-emission energy. This year’s LISW23 theme of ‘Reframing Risk in a Complex Market’ covers many areas of topical interest to the maritime sector but arguably none more so than decarbonisation and how the industry is going to achieve its 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target.”
LISW23 will be held in the week of September 11-15, 2023 and will play host to the maritime world with hundreds of events attracting thousands of international industry decision makers into London during the week. The headline LISW23 Conference will be held on Wednesday September 13th while the LISW23 Gala Dinner will be held on Thursday September 14th.
