- The Conference
The landmark 40th anniversary edition of The Motorship Conference changed to reflect the shift in the shipping industry’s fuel and propulsion needs.
Across two conference streams the event focused on practical, technical developments in the fields of propulsion technologies and alternative fuels.
Over the past decade or so the Gas Fuelled Ships conference has explored the evolution of not just LNG but other clean, low-flashpoint fuels, to the point where they can no longer be considered in isolation from more mainstream propulsion choices. With the 2020 global sulphur cap approaching, operating within the constraints of the Energy Efficient Design Index and with tighter CO2 emissions measures almost certain by 2023, these so-called alternative fuels are now an essential feature in ship owner’s propulsion considerations.
The Motorship’s events are changing to reflect this shift, and to take advantages of emerging synergies in discussions around propulsion and alternative fuels. For the first time in 2018, the long-standing Propulsion & Emissions Conference was run alongside Gas Fuelled Ships Conference, under the new banner of The Motorship Propulsion and Future Fuels.
The new, enhanced conference combined the audiences from Propulsion & Emissions and Gas Fuelled Ships. Over two conference days attendees benefited from insightful technical presentations either in streams or plenary sessions, with the event culminating in a technical visit to a hybrid powered ship on day three.
Networking opportunities at the Conference were plentiful, including the conference lunches, coffee breaks and dinner.
The 40th Motorship Conference, Propulsion & Future Fuels, in association with DNV GL, is the one event you should attend to keep up to date with the latest developments in marine technology, legislation and other key issues whilst also offering fantastic networking opportunities!
