Finnish Maritime Cluster signs with ZVT
The maritime industry is in the middle of a paradigm shift. It’s therefore with great pleasure that we like to announce that the Finnish Maritime Cluster project (FMC) signs a cooperation agreement with Zero Vision Tool (ZVT) to widen the use of the ZVT collaboration method for a safer and more environmentally, climate and energy efficient, while still profitable, transport at sea. A unique industry driven cross-border triple helix way to move forward together.
"We welcome the Finnish Maritime Cluster to the Zero Vision Tool platform", says Susanne Abrahamsson, President of SSPA Sweden AB.
The FMC project comprise Finnish Shipowners’ Association, Finnish Port Association, Finnish Port Operators Association and Finnish Marine Industries. They will engage in, and use, the cooperation structure as well as take a seat in the ZVT Steering Group together with representatives from the Swedish Shipowners’ Association, Ports of Sweden, SSPA and ZVT to strengthen the cross-border cooperation even further. Today there are over 20 ongoing Joint Industry or University Projects (JIP, JUP), comprising over 130 collaboration partners from 11 countries that are using the ZVT method. All coordinated via Sweden. By signing the collaboration agreement the possibility to coordinate this type of Joint Industry Projects via Finland opens up.
The ZVT and the new cooperation is presented at the European Maritime Day 2016 in Turku at the seminar Partnerships for Green Shipping arranged by CBSS and HELCOM (13:30, today 18 of May).
