As well as gmec, SMM will develop the theme of environmental technology in a dedicated hall. Hall A1 has for years focused on the key future topic of systems and equipment designed to combat marine pollution. As well as ship operating systems and deck equipment, there is a large area dedicated to environmental technology such as fresh water generators, filters, ballast water treatment systems, emission control systems, heat recuperators and bilge water systems. Oil processing systems designed to protect the environment are also provided with an arena.
Hall A5 will cover all aspects of alternative and environment friendly technologies in marine propulsion. This will give shipyards and equipment suppliers the ideal showcase for their alternative and low-emission technologies such as LNG, methanol, hybrid and dual-fuel propulsion systems, fuel cells, etc. It will also reflect the whole of the process chain for LNG in ports, such as LNG bunkering facilities and storage infrastructure.
