Today in the beautiful city of Trieste, WW Marine Technologies Srl has been incorporated and started the operations. After several months of hard work and analysis, the founders took a step forward and established a legal entity in the form of a limited liability company in Italy.
The new company will serve as the holding company of a new industrial group that will take the baton of the WhaleWashing® Initiative to bring an innovative technology of hull scansion and hull washing to all the major ports of call around the world.
The WW Marine Technology’s founders come from different fields of expertise and past experiences in other startup companies and entrepreneurial initiatives and form a strong team that covers both the technical and business sides of the project as well as the legal and financial aspects.
The WhaleWashing® dates back to 2018, when the first draft for an automated hull washing station was presented in the city of Rotterdam and to the Port of Rotterdam Authority. The initiative won the participation at the PortXL accelerator program, the most renowned World Port Accelerator program, and started an intense networking and validation process.
Since then, some valuable business collaborations have been reached. In mid-2020, an important business partnership was signed with a major Italian industrial player, with a top of notch engineering capability and full-scale construction facilities.
