Best of maritime on show at Seawork
Europe's largest commercial marine exhibition, Seawork International, opens its doors in Southampton's Mayflower Park on Tuesday 11 June.
The free exhibition will be opened at 10am by Nusrat Ghani, minister responsible for Maritime, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Maritime Security, Skills and Apprenticeships. Ms Ghani is actively involved in planning the future of the British maritime sector and will address the hundreds of commercial marine businesses exhibiting at Seawork.
Now in its 22nd year and adding more than £5m to the south coast's economy, Seawork is organised by Hampshire-based company, Mercator Media, which employs 60 people locally and organises a further seven major worldwide events each year.
First hybrid pilot boat
On show will be the launch of the UK’s first hybrid pilot boat, designed and built in Britain, whilst sister event Speed@Seawork, operating out of Cowes Yacht Haven on Monday 10 June, features sea trials of 15 fast vessels and associated new technology from the USA, Germany, France, Finland, Holland and the UK.
Seawork also features co-located events, the Marine and Coastal Civil Engineering Expo and Coastlink Conference, alongside seminars considering the future of Europe’s maritime sector, including hybrid vessels and unmanned surface vehicles.
Big Blue Ocean Cleanup
The event is partnered with the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup, banning all single use plastics on-site, such as plastic straws and bottles, providing alternative water stations, offering on-site recycling bins and ensuring Seawork carrier bags are made from 100% recyclable materials.
Seawork runs from 11 – 13 June. More details can be found at the Seawork website.
