The maritime industry has embraced information and operational technology to automate processes and drive efficiency. Now the industry is acting to guard against the potential risks of cyber-attack. In this keynote we shall review the current industry position along with findings from an industry focused white paper.

We shall cover pragmatic steps to implement cyber security and practical options to protect the vessel and crew.

As the industry’s drive for efficiency continues to push the demand for ‘smarter’ operations, the following Power 30s look at some of the smart options available on the market.

MODERATOR: Unnikrishnan Nair, Senior Principal Surveyor, ABS

11:40 - 12:10: Connecting to a new reality in offshore

Speaker: Arnstein Eknes, Business/Segment Director Special Ships, DNV GL

Synopsis: Connecting knowledge / technology / operations / way of working – from manual to remote to autonomous, giving examples motivating why this is happening.

12:20 - 12:50: Redefining the Maritime Industry with smart concepts

Speaker: Oskar Levandar, SVP Concepts & Innovation, Rolls-Royce

Synopsis: Digitalization is driving a revolutionary change in the maritime industry. Advances in technological fields such as Artificial Intelligence, Communications, Sensors and Analytics will enable new ship concepts and ways of operating vessels. We shall witness the emergence of remote and autonomous ships in the near future; the first demonstration of a remotely operated commercial vessel took place earlier this year. Completely new vessel types for the workboat and offshore markets are being developed which will give way to new operation models. Giant focus on R&D in the digital domain is creating new products that will greatly enhance the safety and efficiency of all vessels. Situational awareness systems and intelligent steering systems are being introduced to ferry markets and will spread to other sectors of the industry. Digital technology will also enable new business models and bring with it disruptive change.

13:00 - 13:30: Hack the Sea: How to create new business ideas quickly

Speaker: Alexander Nürnberg, Managing Director MacGregor Hatlapa GmbH & Co. KG

Synopsis: Hackathons are a new and systematic approach to assemble teams from different origins to work on defined challenges. The event lasts typically 2 to 3 days with the target to get viable and "out of the box" ideas from people who have not been deeply involved in the industry before. MacGregor was the first company to take this approach into the (conservative) marine industry. Original intention and results will be presented.
