When it comes to meeting up with all the leading stakeholders of the global maritime industry, there’s no place like SMM. The leading international maritime trade fair takes place 3 – 6 September 2024 and Team Norway will be present at the Norwegian Pavilion.

The SMM gathers key players of the various sectors to discuss and introduce solutions that define benchmarks for the age of Green and Smart Shipping through a broad and exciting programme of workshops and conferences. The Team Norway programme will be updated consecutively. Come meet us at the Norwegian Pavilion close to the main entrance in B7. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Norway's Maritime Legacy

Green shipping is crucial for achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the EU's climate neutrality target by 2050. With its long maritime history, the seafaring nation of Norway has a wealth of expertise to offer when it comes to innovative and sustainable solutions that will drive the green transition in the maritime industry forward. Norway's extensive coastline, one of the longest in the world, has served as a testing ground for new solutions for hundreds of years.

Norwegian Frontrunners

Norwegian shipyards are at the forefront of the industry, surpassing all other shipbuilding nations combined in terms of the share of low and zero-emission vessels constructed. Norwegian ship designers, shipyards, equipment suppliers, shipowners, management companies, and technology developers provide world-leading products, systems, and services.

Norway plays a leading role in the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from ships. It also collaborates with the IMO to assist developing countries in preventing marine pollution and reducing emissions. At SMM, you'll have the opportunity to meet some of Norway's leading companies in the green maritime value chain.

Norway's Comprehensive Green Maritime Ecosystem

Norway boasts a comprehensive value chain and a unique network of regional clusters. Low and zero-emission solutions and corresponding infrastructure for passenger vessels are proven and mature technologies in the Norwegian market, ready for export.

By leveraging its maritime expertise, setting ambitious emission reduction targets, leading in zero and low-emission vessel construction, fostering a comprehensive green maritime ecosystem, providing government support and incentives, and engaging in international collaboration, Norway has established itself as a frontrunner in the development and adoption of green shipping technologies.
