Scope:

CHEK is a research and innovation project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program (955286). 

Objective:

The CHEK project with an overall budget of €10.00M over 3 years aims to develop and demonstrate two full scale two first-of-a-kind vessel concept designs (Kamsarmax bulk carrier and Meraviglia class cruise ship) based on real operational profiles and equipped with an interdisciplinary combination of innovative technologies working in symbiosis to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 99%, achieve at least 50% energy savings and reduce black carbon emissions by over 95%.
