Various collaborative projects are under way in the Iceland Ocean Cluster which aim to improve our environment. The newest projects are the “Green ship” and “Green Fishing”. Green ship is a collaboration between Navis, Naust Marine and Newenergy to design an electric fishing ship. The green fishing is a project led by Hampidjan, Polar Doors, Star-Oddi and several other enterprises. The project aims to find environmentally superb solutions in fishing gear and fishing technology. Other green projects in the cluster are green logistics and full utilization of seafood.
“These green projects are very timely and we believe Icelandic tech companies have an important role to play in safeguarding our oceans,” says Dr. Thor Sigfusson CEO of The Iceland Ocean Cluster. “The reason is obvious: the stakes are high for a seafood nation.”
