FPS NEWS

Thank you for your continued interest in Future Proof Shipping’s activities and thanks for signing up to our newsletter.

The FPS team continues to work hard with our partners on various projects in relation to the FPS Maas and our new fleet of three vessels to further our journey towards zero-emission shipping. Acceleration of course has at times been slower than we would all have liked or hoped for, but progress is being made every day and we are proud of the significant strides we are making.

Getting new and innovative technologies into the water, also in conjunction with the pandemic has required us to readjust timelines, but rest assured, we are doing our very best to have the FPS Maas sailing on hydrogen as soon as possible. Our quest for a greener more efficient way to ‘future proof shipping’ and to accelerate to a zero-emissions shipping world will never waver.
