This Forum will provide a tactical approach to vessel performance – with practical discussion, and an overall holistic approach to ship operations. We will investigate regulations, innovations and best practices for vessel performance in design and operations. We will look at the future of integrated whole ship operations, and consider the impact of ship efficiency on ship shore operations.
Optimising vessel performance has always been on our agenda. Increasing regulation, fluctuations in bunker prices and a growing concern for the global environmental impact of shipping has led to an even higher focus on the way vessels operate. This increased pressure forces shipping companies to improve vessels’ technical and operational efficiency even further. Join the discussion in London.
There is an ever-growing list of actors with a stake in a vessel’s performance management. Ship owners, cargo owners, cargo operators, pool operators, charter companies, technical managers, crew, banks, investors and insurance companies will have to deal with transparency and evidence of commitment to efficiency measures in their contracts. At this forum we will look at how these different interests affect one another.
Increased pressure on industry to both reduce costs and evaluate performance has resulted in greater focus on improving vessels' technical and operational efficiency. Rising bunker fuel costs and environmental concerns have elevated this drive towards efficient fleet optimisation even further.
