Book your place to join companies such as Mitsui OSK, Maersk Line, John T Essberger, E R Schiffahrt, Hapag-Lloyd, Carnival Corp, Hamburg Sud, NSB Niederelbe Schiffahrtsgesellschalf, Columbus Shipmanagement and many more to find out about environmental regulations, economic pressures and technological advances.

The 39th Motorship Propulsion & Emission Conference brings together owners/operators and equipment manufacturers to discuss technical advances and in-the-field experiences. Entitled ‘Future proofing your fleet’, this year’s Conference will inform participants on a range of efficiency measures to reduce operational costs and to optimise fleet performance. Building or retrofitting vessels fit for the future, whatever it may hold, is more challenging than ever before. Environmental regulations, economic pressures and technological advances are already reshaping how the global merchant fleet is fuelled, powered and equipped.

The programme offers a mix of plenary sessions featuring case studies, operator panel discussions and interactive industry panels which will equip attendees with the knowledge needed to future-proof the global merchant fleet.

Networking opportunities will also be plentiful as all delegate places include an invitation to the Welcome Reception, hosted by Blohm+Voss on 9 May 2017 at the Hafen Klub as well as the two-day technical conference and conference dinner sponsored by GE Marine, being held at BLOCKBRAU, on 10 May 2017.

Join ship owners, operators, ship designers, engine manufacturers and suppliers and classification societies to network, discuss, debate and share information on the pertinent issues facing these key stakeholders at this crucial time for the shipping sector.
