Profile: Silverstream Technologies B.V. has pioneered air lubrication within shipping for over 10 years, and has invested significantly in the research, development, and testing of air lubrication for ships.
The Silverstream System reduces frictional resistance between the water and the hull surface, dramatically reducing fuel consumption and associated emissions.
The technology is unique in that it is the only proven air lubrication technology that can be retrofitted in 10 days or less, as well as being applicable for new-builds.
It lasts the lifetime of the ship, is complementary to and can be used in conjunction with other clean technologies, and the return on investment is typically between two and five years.
Decarbonisation plan focuses on reducing the city's energy consumption, ramping up renewables, electrifying public transport, reducing waste and sustainable travel and healthier living.
