On 23 February, the Port of Tyne will hold its first Virtual 2050 Innovation Hub ‘byte size’ event of 2021, featuring Frazer-Nash Nuclear Business Manager, Tom Purnell.
In the event, titled: ‘Can nuclear help the marine industry achieve our Net Zero target?’, Tom will outline the current nuclear power technology being developed, and consider its potential application within the marine sector and port environments, including shore-side power and hydrogen generation.
Discussing the webinar, Tom said:
“There are a number of promising technologies on the horizon that can help achieve the nation’s ambitious goals for emission reduction, and help deliver a Net Zero future. As a key part of the UK’s energy mix, nuclear provides dependable, low-emission electricity, and the advent of small and advanced modular reactors may offer a viable solution for not just electricity, but heat and hydrogen generation at an industrial scale. As reactor vendors develop their technologies in the next decade or so, a variety of markets could potentially benefit from the technology, including the marine sector.”
