March 25, 2020 | Diesel Technology Forum
The Diesel Technology Forum offered a free webinar to review the current state of diesel technology and the benefits provided to vessel owners and local communities.
From America’s blue water ports to Great Lakes gateways and inland waterways, waterborne commerce plays a key role in domestic and global goods movement. The wide variety of marine workboats and passenger vessels, pilot and service boats serving these ports rely almost exclusively on diesel technology for both propulsion and auxiliary power services.
This webinar provided participants with a better understanding of the current state of diesel technology for new vessels as well as opportunities available today to repower existing vessels. The latest diesel innovations deliver operational efficiencies to vessel owners and can significantly improve air quality for local communities. Information concerning a variety of programs to provide funding to help replace or repower older vessels such as VW settlement funding and other mechanisms was discussed.
