CRP’s Retrofit on the Thames

30th May 2023 / Posted by Sefinat Otaru

CRP is funding the retrofit of Albert, a workboat owned by Net Zero Marine Services!

Albert was drydocked at Eel Pie Island earlier this month to start its conversion from a diesel vessel to the first fully electric workboat operating on the Thames. Emissions Analytics monitored the vessel’s exhaust in April to quantify the air pollutants that will be eliminated by the retrofit.  

We will be sharing those details and more once the retrofit is completed later this summer when the Albert becomes Alb-E.

This forms part of our Defra-funded Clean Air Logistics for London (CALL) programme.
