Update: “Greece goes green” cooperation


A greener future for Greece’s popular car ferries – this vision is shared by Ioannis Theodoropoulos, Frank Diehl and Holger Segler. The shipping company Theodoropoulos, EAS and Lean Maritime came together on the periphery of the “Maritime Economy Greece” exhibition at the end of September 2019 in Piraeus. The spontaneous “lean & green” think tank is now becoming a real cooperation.

EAS Batteries GmbH’s innovative modular battery concept allows Greek ferries to improve fuel consumption and use new fuels. However, the conversion of conventionally operated ships to a hybrid electrical system from EAS is a fairly costly task. This is where the “lean & green” concept comes in.
Lean Maritime helps shipping companies and shipyards make green conversion measures as lean and cost-efficient as possible. Lean Maritime GmbH advises on all new construction and conversion projects for the integration of new technologies and efficiently controlled production processes. The focus here is on on-schedule execution, lean processing and high quality standards.
