Conference & Workshop Programme includes 3 Keynotes and 20 Presentations

The Dynamic Programme includes 20 Expert Speakers covering 3 Phases:

Here & Now Technology – how industry is evolving today’s technology

Next Generation Systems – within a few years of commercial release

Innovation and Future Possibilities – pushing the boundaries forward

Next Generation Marine Power & Propulsion - Programme Overview:

Hybrid provides 'here and now' solutions as systems move from R&D to commercial availability

CFD modelling and tank testing can improve hulls and propulsion systems, with optimisation and combining technologies

Main power / diesel OEMs highlight how new engine tiers are addressing emissions and exhaust treatment

New propulsion systems including variable pitch and directed thrust can deliver efficiency gains and fuel savings

Fuel cells are gaining momentum as automotive adopts the concept with crossover technologies relevant to maritime

Sub IMO / sub 24m sector can react rapidly to new technology, proving in this size vessel enables scaling to larger platforms

Marine can learn from automotive, aviation, space and sub-sea sectors approach to ‘power’

Autonomous vessels will need ‘next generation power & propulsion’ for military and civilian applications
