  4. 4. Ice Cap Meltdown Consequences <ul><li>The North West Passage is 2600 km long and represents 20 to 50% less distance than other routes between Asia and Europe. </li></ul>Receding ice caps will allow year round access to resources and a new naval route .
  5. 5. Ice Cap Meltdown Consequences <ul><li>Maritime transit of thousands of cargos and oil vessels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To take advantage of economies of scale (17%max), a growing number of larger vessels now transit via the Cape Horn or the Cape of Good Hope routes* </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By 2011, 37% of containerships will be unable to pass through the Panama Canal* </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Northwest Passage represents 40 to 50% less distance between Osaka and London then the cape routes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The current dumping practices of the global maritime transport system represent two major oil spills per year. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Increased industrial and economic </li></ul><ul><li>development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Natural resources exploitation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Local transport, services and support </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Local community development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*Sources: Panama Canal at www.pancanal.com </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Renewable energy & grid location 80% of the potential is in regions presently impacted by winter ice conditions. Distribution of mean potential power by regions within Canada. The UK technically extractable tidal stream resource is ~2000 MW ± 30%, which is roughly 5% of current UK electricity and 18 millions tons of CO2 less per year . <ul><ul><li>Source: Canada Ocean Energy Atlas, May 2006 </li></ul></ul>A potential Tidal Current Energy of 42000 MW . 29595 MW in the Hudson Strait only.

  7. 7. Challenges and Goals <ul><li>The development of the Arctic Passage and surrounding regions as naval route and new sources of energy and natural resources implies a certain number of challenges: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Minimize impact on the regions’ eco-system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Preserve the environment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Implant an eco-friendly energy supply-chain throughout the region </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide resources to regulate and monitor maritime traffic </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maximize benefits to the global eco-system by </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reducing GHG associated with maritime transport </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Promoting the Passage as the economical and secure route between continents </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Allowing passage of ships without size restrictions </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Support the parallel development of the regions’ economy </li></ul></ul>

This eco-friendly approach will minimize environmental impact on the Northwest Passage and Arctic region. Seanergy leads the way Full-spectrum implementation and use of locally produced green energies
  9. 9. Primary Market for Tidal Hydrogen To supply the energetic requirements of thousands of vessels moved over thousands of kilometres. Fuel Replacement: a prosperous market and attractive R.O.I. Revenues generated from the replacement of fossil fuel in ships will exceed those that could be generated by the conversion of Tidal power into electricity. Transportation infrastructure and costs associated with T idal hydrogen are minimal compared to those associated with T idal electricity. Cost-efficiency: larger boats, shorter distances, cheaper fuel will attract operators and commitments. The prospect of stable long - term production costs and immediate access to captive markets, will draw funding from venture capital, private funding and public funding. S eanergy is market - driven
