Company:
RS Components
Title: Harness the power of the private label
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: The industrial space has seen the rapid emergence of private label products with companies realising that value is no longer being measured on price alone. Private label products are most successful when providing a price saving whilst offering an alternative to big brand, but without compromising on quality. By keepingsight of the pillars of value (where quality and performance meet) buyers will be able to successfully realise cost savings without having to compromise.

Time: 12:00pm - 12:30pm
Company:
Trelawny
Title: Proactive global tool supply using Trelawny
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: How much purchasing time is spent trying to find the origin of a spare part or consumable and then in turn using further time to find a stockist to supply when a vessel is approaching a port? The same very much applies to deck scaling and surface preparation equipment.

Trelawny, the leading manufacturer and supplier of deck scaling equipment, using an IT interface will not only track the items you have on each vessel but will recommend the nearest stockist. Ongoing, this will give fleet operators extensive information as to what budget they are spending on these items annually and from where.

-

Time: 2:45pm - 3:15pm
Company: International Paint
Title: Using Data Insights to improve the efficiency of Dry Docks
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: Amongst other things, the condition of a vessel’s coating system can have an impact on the work schedule and planning of an upcoming dry dock. The condition of the coating on the underwater hull that then dictates the level of repair is often stated by experience or guesswork. Algorithms based on 40 year’s worth of ship inspection data have been developed that can predict the corrosion level of the hull and also the level of fouling of the hull based on the operational profile of the vessel. This has led to the development of an Innovative digital solution that will help Owners in their decision making when preparing for Dry Docking

-

Time: 3:30pm - 4:00pm
Company: Lagersmit
Title: Cost saving solution for the Vessel General Permit (VGP)
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: What are the options for a ship owner to ensure VGP compliant seals? Which solution would be the most cost saving? And are there ways to lower the total cost of ownership?

Delivering Peace of Mind with the best sealing solutions for ships, pumps and tidal turbines is Lagersmit’s mission. We will present some real case studies and references from owners about how Lagersmit can help with the above questions!

-

Time: 11:15am - 11:45am
Company: Wilhelmsen
Title: Shaping the industry through digital ventures
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: In a world that is being more regulated and we clearly see the environmental impact of human activity, why is digital solutions important? With access to data and technologies from adjacent industries, we can take more qualified decisions if applied correctly. The environmental impact of our actions needs to me minimized, but how? If it was easy we all would have done it and that is why venture methodology will be important. Let’s talk about what Wilhelmsen have done and how this will have an impact for shipping. To test small, decide what can be scaled, modified or stopped early , we can try out new solutions with speed at a minimum cost compared to traditional ways of running projects. We will about the things that we have done since last year.

Time: 2:00pm - 2:30pm
Company: Zener Maritime Solutions
Title: BWTS systems – Retrofit Considerations for optimal choice.
Speaker: TBA
Synopsis: A basic challenge for retrofitting a BWMS is that almost no single BWM treatment technology meets the demands and operational needs for all types of vessels. The selection of the most suitable BWMS depends on several factors namely Vessel configuration, ballast capacity and pump sizes, operating trade routes and operating profiles.

Operational priorities ( retention times), Ballast water treated rated capacities (TRC), spatial allocation and of course power capacity are some of the most important considerations.

Matching the Equipment design integration taking care of the above factors remains a problem for existing vessels with some if not all the constraints mentioned above. If not addressed properly , this could lead to operational issues which could have a serious impact on the trouble free operations of the vessel leading to obvious commercial losses.

Backed by experience of a100 feasibility studies , this presentation would highlight some of the basic practices that help in identifying the optimal system for any vessel that would ensure a smooth compliance while keeping the best commercial interest of the vessel for its life time.


Many more presentations are due to be announced soon, so stay tuned!
