PortTechEXPO lights the way for port innovation

We showcased our AMP technologies at last week’s PortTechEXPO in Los Angeles, an event we also sponsored.

It was organised by non-profit business incubator Port Tech LA. This year’s event, the fourth of its kind, featured some 100 clean technologies, with more than 300 civic and local and global business leaders in attendance.

The technologies focused on energy, environment, security and transport, primarily for the ports and maritime sector. At our stand – with the help of an actual connector unit – we demonstrated how our AMP systems are helping ports and shipping lines cut emissions.

Keynote speakers included Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Geraldine Knatz, newly elected LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and our CEO, Ottonel Popesco.

Popesco also had the opportunity to speak with Mayor Garcetti, Knatz and the Chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission, as well as a large number of other key contacts.

These discussions, and the interest in the exhibition as a whole, point to the substantial potential of the Ports & Maritime sector generally, and specifically in our niches of electrification and automation.
