HSMV Symposium 2014
The 10th High Speed Marine Vehicles Symposium will be held in Naples, Italy from 15th to 17th October 2014.
As in previous years, HSMV 2014 will provide an opportunity to present and discuss developments in the design, construction and operation of high speed marine vessels.
The market has now recognized that each type of high speed marine vessel has its own optimum maximum speed, and that fast sea transportation must consider many other factors than speed, such as cargo capacity, economy of operation, passenger comfort and safety, environmental friendliness.
Vessels such as large ferries, mega yachts and sailing boats may never achieve speeds of, say, 40 knots, but an increase in speed, together with consideration of other factors, may provide significant added value, although such increase of speed must not conflict with the requirement for passenger comfort.
Papers are invited on all aspects of the development, design, construction and operation of high speed vessels, particularly those relating to this wider interpretation of ‘high speed vessels’.
The RIB & HSC Directory is pleased to be a media partner and supporter of High Speed Marine Vehicles Symposium 2014
