Ionada selected for the PortXL Accelerator

PortXL announced yesterday that Ionada has been selected for the PortXL 2018 accelerator program. The organization scouted more than 1,000 start-ups and scale-ups, of which the final 30 were invited to participate in a 4-day selection event in Rotterdam.

After 4 intensive days it was announced by Mare Straetmans (PortXL), Carolien Vat-Sandee (PortXL), Paul Verheul (van Oord) and Jan Peter Balkenende (EY) that Ionada was selected as one of the finalist.

PortXL will help Ionada to find new clients, investors and grow globally. It’s a 100-day mentorship-driven accelerator program, with a final shakedown presentation on 14 June.

“We are very grateful for all the scale up support provided by the accelerator support team at PortXL, especially Mare Straetmans  and Carolien Vat-Sandee who play key roles in connecting scale ups with Corporates” commented Edoardo Panziera.

With the introduction of Ionada’s Semi Dry Scrubbers, shipowners can achieve the benefits of 50 % fuel cost savings while complying to the IMO 2020 0.5 % sulfur emissions regulations.  Ionada’s Dry Scrubbers has numerous advantages over traditional seawater scrubbers including no structural renovations, no sea water or washwater.  Ionada is now offering shipowners an Exhaust Gas Cleaning (EGC) Service where shipowners only pay for the fuel cleaned.  The EGC Service saves millions in capital costs, and completely de-risks scrubber purchases for the shipowners
