Named after the Greek goddess ‘Artemis’, protection of our natural environment drives everything we do. We have been recognised by Maritime UK and the Department for Transport for our mission to reduce emissions in the maritime sector, and we are proud to have made the SME Climate Hub Commitment. Recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, we have joined governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities around the world that share the same mission of achieving net zero carbon emissions.


Belfast Maritime Consortium

We’re the lead partner of the Belfast Maritime Consortium, a 14-member syndicate which brings together a range of established and young firms, academia and public bodies.

The key aims of this project are to launch the world’s most advanced high-speed zero-emission passenger ferry and develop the technical and operational requirements for a maritime transport system of the future. To support these aims, we’re creating a new high-tech maritime innovation hub and advanced manufacturing cluster, creating 1,000 jobs over the next decade.
