Bernardo Cerrai from Frigomar took the opportunity to present the project in the frame of three international shows of the marine industry:
- the Seatec exhibition in Italy (29-31 March 2017)
- the China International Boat Show in Shanghai (26-29 April 2017)
- and the Nor Shipping in Oslo (May 30 – June 2, 2017).
The boat builders are indeed very sensitive to the energy efficiency issues. For instance talking about the sailing boats, the electric balance on board is crucial and any method to reduce the electrical demand is really welcome. By reducing the electrical consumption it is possible to reduce the size and weight of the on-board power generator. Boat builders consider a saving of 1000€ for 1 kg in weight reduction. A good reason for them to follow with interest the XERIC project!
