European IWT Platform’s Webinar
Monday 28th June 2021
09:30 – 15:45

Inland Waterway Transport’s
Greening Challenges and Stage V – Perfect match or not?

The European IWT Platform is well aware of the greening challenges and uncertainties facing the inland navigation sector. A discussion on future energy sources is no longer a novelty, we know there’s no holy grail. However, what are the more pragmatic challenges that the sector and its entrepreneurs are facing today and what kind of decisions are to be made right now for the benefit of the future?

Therefore, the European IWT Platform is organizing its first Innovation & Greening Webinar on the sector’s greening challenges and outlook for nearby future decision making.

Draft agenda:

Morning session:
EICB with Khalid Tachi – Historical overview of IWT regulations
Vink Diesel with Stenn Hertgers – Euro VI, most advanced diesel technology made available for IWT
Volvo Penta with Jan Willem Vissers – Smart Stage V marine solutions by Volvo Penta & Partners
