Potential of forest biomass bio-oils for marine transport

Magik Web Réalisation, Technologies environnementales

The use of biofuels as a substitute or supplement to fossil fuels is one of the strategies to further reduce the carbon footprint of marine transport. In this context, the research project carried out by SEREX and Innovation maritime, in partnership with the client, aimed to validate the possibility of developing a mixed fuel based on diesel and biofuels derived …

Website consulting water levels along the North Traverse

imar Navigation, Réalisation

In the North crossing, pilots are passing ships of strong drafts using the tides. However, there may be differences between predictions and observations of water levels. In order to facilitate their work, the client wanted to equip themselves with computer tools for planning and monitoring the transits of their ships in the North crossing. Innovation maritime has therefore developed a …
