THE SILVERSTREAM
PLEDGE

Our purpose is to transform maritime energy efficiency.

Our goal is to make air lubrication a global standard for all newbuild vessels, and to upgrade existing vessels with our proven retrofit solutions.

To achieve this, we work with a global network of owners, charterers, shipyards, class societies and industry associations.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS
AND PARTNERS SAY

Project Manager AirLub Design and Integration, Grimaldi Group

“The successful trial of the Silverstream System and the CO2 reduction that it generates is an important step in Grimaldi Group’s aim to lead on shipping sustainability. The trials conducted with the ship in fully loaded service showed the air bubbles covering the entire hull bottom. We are looking forward to continuing to work closely with Silverstream to benefit from their technology on more of our market-leading ro-ro vessels.”

Head of Newbuilding Department, Finnlines

“Finnlines has chosen Silverstream Technologies based on their extensive experience, since they have invested significantly in research and development. We look forward to collaborating with them in future.”
