IEC MSB meeting in London

It gives me great pleasure to announce that on the 18th of April, 2023, Tratos will host a round table on “Using innovation and standardization toward the decarbonisation of the transport sector”.  The event will occur in the frame of the General Meeting of the Market Strategy Board (MSB) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is an international standards organisation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, that prepares and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies.

I am a longstanding member of MSB and have lobbied for the General Meeting of the MSB to take place in London, in order to put the United Kingdom and its challenges/opportunities in decarbonising the transport sector at the centre of the future work of this very important international body.

The round table will be an interactive session with the participation of representatives from the relevant UK government departments, from BCA, RIA, BSI, PEMA, Cavotech and key players in the port/manufacturing/utility sectors. Mr John Pearce, CEO of Made in Britain will also attend and make a presentation on the key metrics in addressing the environmental, social and economic challenges we face. The systemic implications of digitalising the physical reality will be elaborated by Prof Gianvito Lanzolla, Professor of Strategy, Bayes Business School, Faculty of Management.

Tratos will offer a virtual tour of its manufacturing site in the UK and its products and an overview of what the company is doing to achieve sustainable development and net zero emissions targets. In focus, there will be topics such as Alternative Marine Power systems, Offshore Wind Farms, smart grids, etc.
