The forum members will exchange ideas and information related to reducing vessel emissions, lowering fuel consumption, and improving energy efficiency plus engage in discussions covering a wide range of topics including decarbonization, energy transition, alternative fuels & emerging new propulsion technologies. Several joint projects will also be commenced during 2022 with one project already underway.

Commenting on this latest development Captain Ninad Sharad Mhatre, Managing Director of ZEABORN Ship Management (Singapore) said, "We are pleased to work with Eco Marine Power and other founding partners in this forum - this is the right time for such cooperation between industry leaders, for developing innovative solutions to comply with an increasing regulatory regime. Regulators will not provide us with answers - we have to collaborate and do this ourselves, for the greater good of the maritime industry."

Greg Atkinson from Eco Marine Power stated, “The Aquarius Innovation Forum brings together a broad range of companies with a commitment towards moving shipping along the energy transition pathway. During 2022 we look forward to welcoming further companies onboard so that we can expand upon the scope of topics discussed and encourage the forum members to think beyond boundaries as we seek innovative maritime solutions.”
