Entitled ‘Futureproofing your fleet’ and jointly chaired by Lars Robert Pedersen, deputy secretary general, BIMCO and Martin Kroeger, managing director, VDR, the P&E Conference will bring together owners/operators and equipment manufacturers to discuss technical advances and in-the-field experiences through a series of sessions on:

Cutting edge engine performance

Emerging technologies for cylinder conditioning

Turbochargers for today’s shipping market

Preparing for the ballast water treatment frenzy

Alternative fuels & hybridisation

Digital strategies for vessel and fleet optimisation

Stefan Micallef, Director MEPC, IMO and Ole Graa Jakobsen, vice president, head of fleet technology, Maersk Line will give addresses on ‘Future proofing your fleet to comply with forthcoming regulations’ confirming the importance of this long-running event to the shipping world.

The keynotes will be followed by an operator panel discussion involving operators from different sectors who have chosen different solutions to the forthcoming regulations, including the use of scrubbers and LNG. This will give participants not only the opportunity to gain valuable insight into the pros and cons of all options available but also to ask questions of the operators first hand.

Further discussion panels involving operators, suppliers and classification societies will enhance audience participation, giving delegates the opportunity to engage with speakers and panellists throughout the event.
