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.
Den Danske Maritime Fond has granted many maritime projects during the last years. Some of these will be presented by the project managers of the projects including the latest project of Green Ship of the Future: The Ecofeeder project.
Smart solutions are growing across all maritime sectors. With digital design models, remote surveillance and on-line monitoring, reliance on smart technical solutions is no longer an option but a business-prerequisite.
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.
Several battery powered ferry projects have been introduced in recent years. Not only in Norway, but also in Denmark are Ferries completely powered by batteries planned and under construction
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.
Digitalisation has hit us - big time. And it will also hit us in the shipping industry. We will take you on a journey where we look at the overall trends with a focus on shipping.
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.
