In April 2018 IMO adopted the historical strategy for CO2 and GHG from shipping. The strategy includes concrete reduction targets for the sector and requires shipping to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards 70% by 2050, compared to 2008.
One of the largest decommissioning oil & gas tasks undertaken in the North Sea is underway at the Tyra field in Denmark and at the same time the world’s first offshore wind farm Vindeby has been decommissioned. New business opportunities and new challenges are opening for the maritime and offshore industry.
Several newbuildings are underway to Danish flag - both inland ferries, RoPax- and RoRo ships. Some of these projects will be presented with a focus on new designs and lessons learned from the projects.
Flådekapløbet mellem Tyskland og Storbritannien. Krigsudbruddet, de tyske krydseres hærgen på verdenshavene, slaget ved Coronel, slaget ved Falklandsøerne. Den tyske middelhavseskadres flugt til Konstantinopel. Bombardementet af britiske kystbyer. Slaget ved Doggerbanke og Jyllandsslaget. Fiaskoen ved Dardanellerne.
In April 2018 IMO adopted at MEPC 72 the historical strategy for CO2 and other GHG´s from shipping. The strategy includes concrete reduction targets for the sector and requires shipping to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards 70% by 2050, compared to 2008.
Under besættelsen var danske skibsværfter optaget af reparation, vedligeholdelse, renovering og nybyggeri til den danske flåde samt den tyske handelsflåde og krigsmarine.
Søværnets skibsværfter havde travlt med at opbygge flåden i vores besatte land. Så travlt, at den danske flåde i perioden 9. april 1940 til 29. august 1943 tilføjede flere nybygninger end i perioden 1920-1940.
Derudover leverede skibsværfterne et betydeligt antal handelsskibe til besættelsesmagten, men også regulære krigsskibe til kamp mod de allierede.
This industry has grown considerably in the past decades and Denmark hosts a number of leading companies representing Designers and Builders of specialized vessels, Owners and Operators of crew transfer vessels (CTVs) and installation / construction vessels and other stakeholders. The rapid development of maritime activities around this booming industry has pushed the formulation of new standards and regulations and the Authorities, Classification Societies and the Duty holders have endeavored to address the needs of this new industry.
Different stakeholder will explain what has been achieved and the challenges ahead.
The international shipping industry is facing an increasingly tighter regulatory environment, especially when it comes to “emissions to air”. With the recent decision at IMO to implement the global sulphur cap in 2020, combined with the international shipping’s commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions - to match the spirit and ambitions of the Paris Agreement - the pressure is on.
Forsvarsministeriets Materiel og Indkøbsstyrelse har igennem de seneste år bygget og udrustet en række nye og meget kapable skibe, som nu er implementeret i Søværnets struktur. Herudover er der flere ombygningsprojekter og nybygningsprogrammer, som fortsat er i gang.
Hvad er status på disse skibsbygningsprojekter? Hvilke udfordringer har det givet og hvad byder det nye Forsvarsforlig?
Kom og hør nogle af den maritime industris pionerer, som har skabt succes! Vi inviterer folk med en iværksætterånd til at deltage i dette spændende gå-hjem møde, uanset om du søger inspiration til at starte din egen virksomhed - eller at du søger måder at skabe vækst i din virksomhed.
Remote controlled, autonomous and unmanned ships are a hot topic at the moment. Let's look at some of the realized and most mature prototypes and focus on the technology - not on international regulation and legal liability aspects. Numerous processes on board have to be automated. The reliability of communication between systems has to be enhanced. The human-machine interface will change significantly. Just some of the challenges technology will solve
Finish shipbuilding has always been a very interesting topic due to the diversity of ships built in Finland, such as large ice breakers, large cruise ships and ferries, very specialized vessels such as barge carriers, research vessels and a variety of cargo ships – most of them strengthened for navigation in ice. The history of the Finnish shipbuilding has now been written by the well know maritime author, Bruce Peter, who tell the story of Finish shipbuilding with his normal enthusiasm.
Rules and regulations to secure enough propulsion power of ships when operating I bad weather are in conflict with more stringent EEDI requirements in the future. Analytical tools and methods to solve these problems will be presented at the meeting including the latest updating from IMO´s meeting in the Environmental Protection Committee held in July 2017 (MEPC 71).
The Danish shipyards have adapted to the changed market. There are activities at the Danish yards. Newbuilding activities for specialty vessels, fishing vessels and work vessels have had an interesting development in recent years. In line with the technical development, the need for retrofit of green technology, optimization, etc. Denmark has created an opportunity to supply a range of services from the Danish shipyards.
Blue INNOship, which is Denmark’s largest maritime innovation project, has been up and running for almost 2½ years. Blue INNOship consists of 14 technical collaboration projects focusing on developing technological solutions to decrease the carbon footprint from shipping.
More than 30 years ago, the development of the so-called Kappel propeller started. The originator of this propeller, Jens Julius Kappel, has devoted a large part of his life to the project.
The climate of the Arctic regions is changeable which thereby also applies to the interest in the Arctic Regions. Due to the size of the country, Greenland is a very important factor, and consequently, presence in the Arctic regions is important.
This evening will present an introduction to, and an attempt to, provide some clarity of, a rather unclear and complex subject – the new the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) 2014/90/EU - the ‘wheel mark’ standard.
In December, the two new ferries for Gedser -Rostock, "Berlin" and "Copenhagen", presumably have been in service for a while. Rasmus Nielsen from Scanlines will tell us about the ferries' design, building and modification.
This year DFDS, northern Europe’s largest integrated shipping and logistics company, celebrates its 150th anniversary. Instead of looking back through history, we would like to give an insight into the future tonnage strategy of the ship owner. The DFDS Newbuilding and Major Conversions department will present ongoing projects, how to implement best practice in the projects, and touch upon geographical and regulatory challenges.
Different organizational changes at DTU Maritime have taken place and the consequences of these changes will be presented. Different interesting research projects will also be presented and discussed including a look into the future of possible research activities.
Different types of fuels (LNG, LPG, Methanol, Ethanol, different types of bio fuels etc.) have been introduced in recent years – and more will come. The physical characteristics of these fuel types, pro et con for using them, will be presented at this meeting by relevant experts from universities and the industry.
Attention to fire on RoRo and RoPax vessels is generally growing, and emphasis is put onto developing both new rules and regulations as well as new methods to extinguish and reduce the fire risks onboard such vessels. Several fires have occurred in recent years, and development is required.
The arctic area has been considered as a very remote area for many years, but more and more focus is given to this area, partly because unknown resources (oil and minerals) attract different stakeholders, but also because the global warming reduces the amount of ice in the arctic area.
In 2013/14 the Danish Minister for Business and Growth decided to provide a grant for maritime development initiatives supporting Green Growth in the Blue Denmark. Some of the projects, supported by this initiative is now finalised, and will be presented at this meeting.
