Sustainable technology in the maritime sector
The world is transforming, and technology has become a sustainable resource at all levels.
New technological tools have contributed to taking not only the infrastructure, but also the development of optimal environmental solutions to the next level.
We know that maritime transport is considerably one of the most important means of transportation. However, over the years, it has been one of the most polluting.
Despite this, thanks to technological development, it is allowing maritime transport to become more sustainable.
Many corporations over the world are already working on significant contributions to make maritime transport sustainable and minimize environmental impact.
Renewable energy is one of the most effective ways to reduce emissions. Nowadays, wind turbines and solar panels are already being implemented to generate energy.
Some even use energy storage technology to ensure a constant supply of energy. Technology also allows real-time monitoring of ship emissions, which is why with the management of a monitoring system, important decisions can be made to improve the efficiency of maritime transport.
Sustainable and efficient design…
Aerodynamic design allows for energy optimization, which is why corporations are working on sustainable designs for ships to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
At the same time, some ships are equipped with hybrid propulsion systems that combine diesel and electric motors to achieve greater energy efficiency.
With this comes the planning of routes and navigation speed if this is achieved travel time is reduced, and fuel is optimized.
If one thing is clear, the fight for a green world is growing, and little by little, technology becomes a sustainable tool to improve CO2 impact on the environment.
