GAS FEST VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SERIES

Bringing the gas as marine fuel community together, virtually. 

Gas Fest is a unique ‘for industry, by industry’ platform created as an antidote to the usual maritime conference or webinar. We’ve gathered key players across the marine fuel value system since 2017, in person and online, to explore the role of gas as a marine fuel on the Maritime Zero Pathway.

Through these virtual workshops, we:

  • Re-connect on current pressing industry issues 

  • Share new perspectives

  • Discuss, debate and decide on tangible output 

Gas Fest Virtual Workshops Series 3, Sep 21

"The industry should be pro-active in establishing safety and training best practices rather than waiting for regulations around green ammonia to emerge"
