Exhibitor sign up to MDL’s Green Tech Boat Show is gaining momentum. Ready to display their eco-friendly and innovative products, an increasing number of marine businesses and brands are joining the show’s growing line-up.
Designed to shine a spotlight on the marine industry’s green products and technologies with a view to making boating more sustainable, the show will return to MDL’s Queen Anne’s Battery, Plymouth, for the second time on 17 – 18 June.
New to the show this year is the WasteShark. Showcased by RanMarine Technology, the WasteShark, modelled on the whale shark – the planet’s biggest fish, removes floating plastic waste and unwanted biomass from our waterways. An autonomous surface vessel, the zero-greenhouse emission WasteShark is designed to be an efficient, non-threatening and unobtrusive solution to all-purpose waste collection in urban, rural, industrial and leisure environments.
ePropulsion UK is teaming up with Plymouth-based dealer Blue Electric to introduce visitors to the Green Tech Boat Show to the full range of its powerful electric drive outboards and POD drives for yachts. Blue Electric’s founder, renowned yachtsman Conrad Humphries who skippered The Bounty in Channel 4’s re-enactment of Captain Bligh’s epic voyage, will also be speaking about making the switch to green power.
Making its UK debut is the RemigoOne, a fully integrated electric outboard – the only one size fits all motor using a long and short shaft fitting system. Introduced by Silent Yachting, the RemigoOne is ecologically friendly, while the highly efficient 1000W brushless DC motor offers the equivalent power of a 3hp petrol outboard.
“We are delighted with the number and range of exhibitors that are either returning to the Green Tech Boat Show with an extended range of products or are signing up for the first time,” says Tim Mayer, MDL’s sales and marketing director.
“The focus of the Green Tech Boat Show is helping boat owners and prospective boat owners understand what is available to them when it comes to making the switch to greener options. If you are designing, manufacturing, distributing or launching an eco-friendly boating product or service, the Green Tech Boat Show is the ideal platform to showcase an innovative environmentally sound solution for sustainable boating to a receptive audience.”
Exhibitors confirmed so far for MDL’s Green Tech Boat Show include: Aegina-Pure, Aqua superPower, ARC Marine, The Bounty Project, ePropulsion, Finsulate UK, The Green Blue, Lynch Electric Motors, Marine Energy Systems, Maritime UK South West, Mastervolt, Openarc Marine, Optima Electric Boats, Pixii Electric Boats, RanMarine Technology, Remigo Electric Outboards, RNLI, RS Electric Boats, Sail Electric, Silent Yachting, University of Plymouth, VETUS, Vita Yachts, Vulcan Industries Limited and ZPN Energy.
Augmenting this extensive range of eco-focused exhibitors and to further address the complexities of green marine technologies, the show will incorporate an Innovation Hub sponsored by the University of Plymouth, which is among the UK’s leading proponents of clean maritime research and innovation.
The research will be presented in a user-friendly format, and businesses and organisations at the cutting edge of clean marine technological innovation will be on hand to demonstrate how their products contribute to combatting climate change, while still enabling people to enjoy time out on the water and the benefits that brings.
