Who we are
The Motorship Propulsion & Future Fuels Conference in 2019 attracted over 150 attendees, from 30 countries. The audience included over 30 operators managing a combined fleet in excess of 5,100 ships.
The previous conference took place from 19-21 November 2019 in Hamburg, Germany and explored a range of topics such as the final steps to 2020, innovations in NOx and SOx abatement, electrifying the merchant fleet and data-driven efficiencies.
In 2020 this will continue, with emphasis on the next steps to 2030 and 2050; and an in-depth analysis of ship operators’ future fuel considerations with sessions featuring expert presentations from a selection of fuel and equipment manufacturers, policy makers, safety experts, shipowners, and class societies.
2019 marked the 41st anniversary of Motorship Conferences, making Propulsion & Emissions the longest running technical conference in the maritime sector. The conference provides senior executives with a meeting place to learn, discuss and share knowledge of the latest developments in efficient propulsion technology and low flashpoint, low carbon fuels. It is a must-attend event for CEOs and technical directors from ship owning/operating and management companies, ship design and ship building senior executives, sector specialists from fuel, equipment and technology suppliers plus senior management and advisors from classification and policy-making organisations.
The conference features strong support and chairmanship from two of the sectors heavy weight associations: BIMCO, whose shipowner members represent more than 60% of global tonnage, and the German shipowner association VDR, headquartered in Hamburg and representing a fleet of 2,324 ships with a combined gross tonnage of 57.5 million.REad more
