Session 1: Ship Planning and Design for Optimal Efficiency
A vessel should be designed optimally for the operations that it will encounter over its lifetime. There has been much change in the industry over the last five to seven years and focus on efficient designs has increased significantly.
Experts in ship operations and ship design will use this session to discuss how design methods have improved, both in setting new requirements to efficient tonnage but also in today's ship design methods.
1200 – Operational data, a Driver for Long Term Efficiency in Shipping
- Grand challenges for shipping; holistic view imperative
- Going VR: setting-up a digital twin of the ship
- Implications for retrofits in the ships lifetime
- Implications for ordering new ships
- Incentives for changes
Mogens Schrøder Bech, Director, Maritime R&D, Danish Maritime Authority
1225 - Designing Efficient Propulsion for Ships
- Ships operation and importance of expected operational profile
- Designing new ships for the future; hull design, engines, propellers
- Retrofit, making older designs efficient in a new market
Kjartan Ross, Head of Retrofit & Upgrade, Propeller & Aft Ship, MAN Diesel & Turbo , MAN Diesel & Turbo, Chairman Steering Committee, BlueINNOship, Chairman Steering Committee Green Ship of the Future
Session 2: Fleet Performance Management
Companies are slowly learning how to manage new anti-fouling coatings, quality of dry-dockings, how and when to conduct hull cleanings, and propeller polishing. Hull and propeller degradation during and after and during a dry-docking period is a major contributor to underperformance of ships, but other factors also leave for improvement; engine efficiency, ship’s own power production and power consumption, use of boilers, shaft generators, consumption in harbours – these all have an impact on the efficiency of the typical merchant fleet.
What to Consider When Considering your Fleet – the Operator’s View
1250 – The NYK Approach to Improving Fleet Performance
- Multiple data sources, such as IoT, reports, AIS and weather, are integrated in a data lake for a variety of data uses.
- Vessel performance while in service is analysed, modelled, simulated and utilised to improve fleet performance.
- Continuous improvement processes to identify issues and to solve them through collaboration should be encouraged.
Dr. Ando Hideyuki, Senior General Manager, Monohakobi Technology Institute, NYK Line

1630 - Roundtable Sessions
These roundtables are open to all participants and will take place simultaneously. Each table can host up to 10 participants, and delegates will be invited to sign up on the morning of the conference to the roundtable they wish to attend, via our interactive WebApp. The content in these interactive Round Table sessions will be focused on solutions and business strategy and they will last for 1hour in total, with the discussion itself lasting 40 minutes, followed by 20 minutes for a short summary from each table to the whole room.
Sessions to be covered in these interactive discussion groups include:
- Efficient Hull Design
- Ship Design Benchmarking
Jacob H. Thygesen, CEO, OSK Group
- Smart Investment
- Weather Routing
- Future Regulations
