Workshop at EMSA Headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal 18-20.10.2022
The workshop on Alternative Fuels and Power Solutions for Shipping and Ports at EMSA, The European Maritime Safety Organization, in Lisbon has been concluded.
The workshop topic was very broad but still stayed focused as a whole, providing insight into what technical and regulatory developments are under way or under consideration and what kind of challenges these pose to become implemented. Key industry representatives and stakeholders provided their view and approach to deal with GHG reduction targets and maritime legislative frameworks.
Also, the topic on carriage of AFVs in RoRo Cargo Spaces was discussed and the “AFVs Guidance” was presented as well, followed by discussion on how it has been received by the market.
We thank EMSA for organizing the event, which was also great as a networking platform with both fellow European Government as well as Industry representatives.
Workshop at EMSA Headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal 18-20.10.2022
EMSA, The European Maritime Safety Organization, has called experts to a 2,5 day workshop at their headquarters in Lisbon in Mid-October 2022. The workshop focuses on Alternative Fuels and Power Solutions for Shipping and Ports.
Marine Charging Point will attend the workshop modules No.1, focusing on alternative and future fuels, and No.2, focusing on energy storage systems onboard ships, including the transportation of AFVs, alternatively fuelled vehicles, onboard ships.
MCP is developing projects with EV charging and monitoring systems for ferries on four continents and in 13 countries to date - and also focusing on providing high-level expertise not only for our customers and stakeholders, but for classification societies and legislative bodies as well, and thus serving both the electric vehicle community and shipping sector as a whole.
Marine Charging Point Ltd admitted to second stage of the EIC Accelerator
EIC, The European Innovation Council, has reviewed an application from Marine Charging Point and passed it to the second stage of the high-level funding program with an overall “GO”.
Marine Charging Point has attracted the interest of some of the largest shipyards, ship operators, technology corporations as well as energy companies on the globe and is looking to grow significantly in 2023 and beyond. We are strengthening our team with key recruitments from both the EV, Energy and Marine sectors, to build a versatile and vastly competitive organization that understands the demands of both the shipping and EV transportation sector, and therefore can offer added value to both segments.
The largest charging system installations in scope are already well beyond 1MW of charging power per vessel, with both AC and DC charging combined or alone, coupled with an active monitoring system.

Oscar Sandberg, CEO
Marine Charging Point has been invited to participate in EMSA's (European Maritime Safety Agency) informal work group focusing on dealing with APV's (alternatively powered vehicles, such as EV's) onboard in ro-ro spaces of cargo and passenger ships.
The work group is working on high-level guidelines to the EU for safe carriage of APV's onboard.
Charging is one of the key topics being discussed by the work group. We at Marine Charging Point are working tirelessly to contribute to safe carriage of EV’s onboard by also enabling safe charging activities. We are keeping a tight dialogue with our customers - primarily the ship operators, the marine safety and operations regulating authorities, classifications societies, ongoing research projects and other stakeholders, providing them with practical input and key technical insights of the possibilities of charging systems onboard, as we consider ourselves a market-leading expert on this topic.

EMSA releases Guidance Document on carriage of AFV’s onboard ferries.
EMSA, The European Maritime Safety Organization, that assists the EU Commission with Maritime legislative affairs and development, releases a Guidance Document on the Carriage of AFV’s in RO-RO Spaces. This has been a long awaited point of reference for shipowners and shipbuilders alike, as the vehicles coming aboard vessels nowadays drastically shift more towards battery powered vehicles and to some extent other alternative fuels – yet no proper guidance has been offered on this topic until now.
Marine Charging Point, expert on charging systems for marine applications, has contributed with expertise on the EV charging scope, that is also covered by the Guidance. The work has been performed through an informal work group, led by EMSA to collectively produce the Guidance document by various stakeholders in the European maritime community.
Marine Charging Point is proud to actively contribute to safer conditions onboard by offering its expertise for legislative and guidance matters, whilst developing safe and highly sophisticated charging and monitoring solutions for EVs on the car decks of ferries around the world.
The Guidance Document can be found on EMSA:s website:
Ramping up the EV Charging Infrastructure onboard ferries in Europe:
EVZiiin, a Greek EV Charging Company, teams up with Marine Charging Point for the distribution of Marine Charging Point's EV Charging System onboard ferries. Read more about the cooperation in below press release:
Who is the company that takes electric car chargers to the sea?
A new line of highly innovative products for the charging industry for electric cars, not only on land and on the road, but also at sea, comes from EVziiin©.
The specific solutions will solve an important issue concerning the charging of electric vehicles for many drivers who make either frequent stays, or business commitments, or their holidays, on different islands throughout Greece and who will now have the opportunity to arrive. destination with the car's full battery.
On the other side, shipowners will be able to provide these services easily, reliably and safely - an issue of paramount importance to the industry, for obvious reasons - through an integrated support system.
The operation of this system
High-quality load and safety monitoring systems are used for roPax passenger cars as well as PCC (Pure Car Carrier) and PCTC (Pure Car and Truck Carrier). The complete charging and monitoring systems consist of special materials, with the highest safety standard, for installation on car decks and control rooms, in combination with a specially designed software integrated in the ship's fuel management system, with extensions that extend to both warning and alarm systems.
The central control system, called the CYAN charging system, uses adaptive energy management and optimization, which allows the electrical systems to be charged according to the boat's actual energy distribution capacity at any time. Most important of all, the relevant systems get the most out of it the ship's capacity at any time. The most important thing is, that the relevant systems make the best use of fire or explosion-related accident prevention by extracting all available information from charging stations and connected vehicles - giving a warning of any malfunctions or danger to the crew as soon as possible.
The benefits of solutions
1. Utilization of accumulated know-how by leading countries in the field of e-mobility: From the Netherlands, Scandinavian countries and experience from maritime transport in the Baltic Sea.
2. Enhanced safety: Electric propulsion systems, like all other systems on board, must meet specific specifications and be able to comply with future common European safety directives. EVziiin© solutions provide just that.
3. Full interconnection: EVziiin© solutions interact with the ship's system and can offer - in addition to the boat's system - remote control of the boat's infrastructure.
4. Integrated ecosystem: EVziiin© circuits provide remote support, operation, troubleshooting, pricing and sales from ship-owned charging infrastructure.
5. Personal services: EVziiin© IoT ecosystem supports different types of campaigns (eg advertising vouchers) for the consumer/driver for the benefit of shipping companies and their customers.
EVziiin© brings the specific state-of-the-art solutions to Greece in collaboration with the company: Marine Charging Point Ltd, a leading company from Finland, which will transfer - through its products - the important experience of the Scandinavian Hersonissos in the field of electricity, now also in the sea...
Great business opportunities
E-mobility creates new business opportunities - now also in the shipping industry - and opportunities for ship-owning companies to generate new revenue streams. In particular, by using the platform developed by EVziiin©, they take full advantage of the possibilities of the Internet of Things and the digital technology in the field of charging electric cars.
