Digital transformation of the Marine industry: Denis Grynzspan, Digital Marine Business Leader, GE’s Marine Solutions

The Marine industry is being impacted by market fluctuations, oversupply and budget pressures. Data analytics powered by the industrial internet could unlock new operational efficiencies and redefine competitiveness in this sector, just as they have transformed other industries such as Aviation and Power. This paper will explore how solutions such as Asset Performance Management (APM) can optimize marine operations with data-driven decisions and help accelerate the digital transformation journey.

Join ship owners, operators and manager, ship designers, ship yards, ship builders, engine manufacturers, classification societies, industry associations and other stakeholders at the 39th Propulsion & Emissions Conference.
