In April 2018, the IMO announced an “initial strategy” for cutting the shipping sector’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050, compared to 2008. This session will look at the development of zero-carbon fuels and the role of hybrid or electric propulsion systems in meeting this ambitious target for limiting the shipping sector’s contribution to climate change as well as the safety and environmental risks involved.

Lower fuel consumption and the associated reduction in CO2 emissions are prized goals for the industry. With a wide variety of innovative systems available, ship operators today have a choice of options for improving the performance of their vessels, and this session will analyse digital technologies for enhanced vessel monitoring, hull cleaning to reduce fouling and subsequent drag, propeller modification to achieve optimum performance at lower operating speeds, and the use of weather routing software for voyage planning.

Ships of the future are based on advanced technology at all levels and will require different and more technically advanced knowledge and expertise than today’s vessels – both on board and on shore. This session will explore the role of people in the future of shipping; what new opportunities will arise, how roles will change alongside new technology, and how that technology can enhance the performance of tomorrow’s seafarers. Innovations such as wearable health monitors and ever-increasing connectivity on board are already being utilized, so how can the next generation of seafarers master technological advances to be the most effective generation yet?
