Passenger Ship Sustainability 2017 will provide a forum for the passenger ship sector to come together and discuss major hurdles and recent case studies for mitigating the environmental impact of the industry.

Chaired by Richard Vie, Former VP Technical Development and Quality Assurance, Carnival Corporation, Passenger Ship Sustainability 2017 is a critical meeting to reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency.


AIR POLLUTION REDUCTION INNOVATIONS

Adherence to the incoming sulphur cap is only one part of the fight against air pollution. Operators must now decide whether to change the fuels they burn or the methods through which they treat emissions with exhaust gas cleaning systems or ‘scrubbers’. Delegates will analyse the ways in which operators can reduce and mitigate the adverse effects or air emissions and instigate debate on alternative solutions.

Organisations Speaking Include:


INTEGRATING THE BALLAST WATER CONVENTION

The implications of invasive species to ecosystems have driven international and IMO regulation on how ship owners must treat and discharge ballast water. The entire maritime industry is now facing challenges in finding cost-effective solutions and managing the upheaval in time of implementation.


COMBATING INFRASTRUCTURE AND SAFETY CHALLENGES FOR LNG

Capable of running without emitting sulphur, LNG also promises to lower nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. Explore key projects driving investment and discuss whether LNG is a solution for low emission shipping.

Organisations Speaking Include:


IMPACT OF SULPHUR REGULATION IN EMISSION CONTROL AREAS

This section will explore operational feedback as well as an assessment of the air quality and impact on public health within the Baltic Sea region. Conclusions will be drawn from real life data and provide insight into future environmental requirements

Organisation Speaking Include:


MANIPULATING SHIP DESIGN TO LOWER POLLUTION

To avoid costly retrofit and maintenance costs it is essential the design phase delivers an environmentally friendly and cost-effective ship concept. Discover how collaboration between design teams is essential in ensuring the ship can exceed IMO regulations whilst offering a cost-effective solution.

Organisation Speaking Include:


NEXT GENERATION ENGINE AND PROPULSION SYSTEMS

The need to lower environmental emissions whilst enhancing efficiency is driving the development of hybrid propulsion systems. Delegates will analyse advances in the use of hybrid systems, optimising battery powered vessels and the impact of LNG powered systems.

Organisations Speaking Include:


ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND FUTURE PROGRAMMES

Energy management systems can further enhance cost savings and reduce maintenance costs. Optimised ship performance and data can help to support procurement decisions and impact environmental strategy. This final section will look at the future innovations across the industry which are making these improvements possible.
