The 36th ‘Motorship’ propulsion and emissions conference concluded on 22 May in Hamburg, and was judged to be another highly successful event.

The vast majority of delegates made it back to the Atlantic Kempinski hotel for the second day, following a feature-packed first day which concluded with the DNV-GL sponsored conference dinner, at Hamburg’s Parlament restaurant. The discussions began with presentations on the EEDI from Pierre Sames of DNV GL and Dr Jan de Kat of ABS, followed by a shipowner panel, including representatives of three high-profile ship owning and managing companies, who raised some important and relevant points about EEDI implementation.

This was followed by a session on monitoring exhaust emissions, with speakers from ECSA and the Danish Shipowners Association representing the owners, with Siemens and VAF Instruments from the industry. An interesting discussion following the day’s first two sessions stressed the importance of a fair, global and universal system of monitoring and classing ships for energy efficiency, with some owners querying the sheer amount of data that seemed to be needed onboard.

Following the lunch break, Ole Grøne of MAN Diesel & Turbo outlined the company’s EGR and SCR solutions for IMO Tier III, with a session following on the all-important question of how ports could enforce the emissions regulations. A further shipowner panel discussed the question, before chairman Lars Robert Pedersen of BIMCO brought the event to a close.
