We are looking for startups and scaleups that want to collaborate with Engie to retrofit current marine engines to be applicable for bio methanol and hydrogen fuels, as well as decreasing the output of CO2 in these alternative fuels. We are looking for solutions in the following areas:
RETROFITTING OF CURRENT ENGINES
Technologies or solutions that enable a cost-effective method to transform old marine engines into future proof engines allowing the use of bio methanol and hydrogen fuel. This relates also to the size of the reservoir, pressure, cylinders, and pumps used to operate the engines.
ADAPTATION OF MARINE SHIPS
Technologies and solutions that enable cost-effective methods to adapt the marine ships to allow the use of hydrogen and bio methanol as fuel. This includes the piping used and adding double-walled piping.
DECREASING CO2 EMISSION IN GREEN METHANOL
Technologies to decrease the CO2 emission in green methanol.
WHATS IN IT FOR YOU
Pilot contract with Engie to validate your solution and scale up if successful
Access to Engie's facilities like labs, pilotplants, application tests and more.
Access to the Chemport Europe network
Have a working prototype or demonstrator
Be able to launch a finished product or service within the next 18 months
Be able to do a pilot project in the Netherlands
The deadline for applications of proposals is on November 11th, 2019 at midnight (UTC+2).
ANNOUNCEMENT SELECTED STARTUPS
The announcement of selected companies will be done latest December 12th, 2019.
The selected companies will be invited for one-on-one business meetings to discuss the potential pilot with Engie from January 7th till 8th 2020, during Sustainable Industry Challenge – Chemport Europe edition in Groningen, the Netherlands.
The most relevant startup(s)/scaleup(s) will start with the pilot from February onwards.
