Current Direct presentation to the Inteferry conference

We are pleased to confirm that Current Direct partner Rhoé Urban Technologies will speak at the 45th Annual Interferry Conference, taking place in Santander from October the 2nd to the 6th 2021

The 2021 Interferry Conference in Santander is the premier event in the calendar of shipping conferences, and we are excited that Rhoé has been given the opportunity to speak on behalf Current Direct in such a prestigious event.

Rhoé will present the extensive research that has conducted, under the framework of the Current Direct project, on battery swapping in waterborne transport. It investigates the transfer of fundamental characteristics of existing ground battery swapping, while implementing the same, to the corresponding operational environment of ferries, inland waterways, and coastal shipping. In addition to that, it suggests a cloud-based Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) platform as a resilient management approach of the waterborne battery swapping method that will process information, decide, provide directions and optimize the work-cycle of a waterborne battery swapping network by providing numerous industry leading features.

This innovative research is the heart of the Current Direct project and will significantly alter the maritime industry’s environment.
