Great success for Eidsvaag Pioneer and Zulu 04 demos and test runs!


An important milestone has been achieved with the demonstrators events and test runs of Eidsvaag Pioneer and Zulu04, the two business cases of the Autoship project.

The research carried out in the frame of Autoship is allowing the industry to respond to the triple challenges of zero emission transport, real modal shift and the looming workers shortage crisis.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our exceptional lineup of speakers who expertly guided us through this transformative journey.
