Optimised Ship Forum



Identifying and Implementing Digitalisation Solutions for Maximum Benefit

08.00 Registration, coffee and networking 
09.00 Welcome address from Riviera Maritime Media
Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media 
Maritime 4.0 will enable enormous gains to be achieved in the operational efficiency of commercial shipping. This introductory session looks at the opportunities and challenges these massive data sets are creating. 
09.10 Energy transition outlook 2050 – Maritime

  • Where does the Maritime industry stand on the roadmap towards IMO GHG targets?
  • What can be done on the technical and regulators side to support the strategy?
  • Which factors need be considered for today’s investment decisions?

Dr Olaf Doerk, Regional Manager Advisory Services West Europe, DNV GL

09.30 IMO´s contributions and regulatory work for the protection of the environment
challenges for the shipping industry

  • Relating short-term measures to IMO’s minimum 2050 emissions reduction target.
  • Considering the four phases of the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP): Monitoring & Measure, Selfevaluation & Improvement, Planning and Implementation.

Monika Breuch-Moritz, German Maritime Ambassador, IMO 
Gerhard Aulbert, Global Head Ship Recycling, DNV GL

09.50 Control room with a view: connect, command, centralise

  • Harnessing digitalisation and technology for centralised fleet management and optimised vessel operation.
  • Crew performance optimisation: rotation, training & safety, incident avoidance.
  • Vessel performance optimisation: speed, fuel management.
  • Voyage optimisation: weather routing, port delays.
  • Maintenance optimisation: analytics, remote monitoring, sensor and camera technology.

Joachim Brack, Managing Director Hamburg, Columbia Shipmanagement
10.10 Q&A 

10.30 Coffee Break 
New cloud technologies will dramatically affect the design, construction and operation of vessels and their components. This session focusses on the challenges and potential of technology integration. 
11.10 The H2020 European research project - HOLISHIP (2016-2020)

  • The changing face of ship design. Creating the ship of tomorrow.
  • Developing innovative, holistic ship design optimisation methods, in which all main design functional requirements, constraints and performance indicators are considered.
  • Minimising costs for varying loading and environmental conditions.
  • Advanced design systems to facilitate shipbreaking and the recycling of materials and components at the end-of-life phase.

Jochen Marzi, Head of Department, Holiship Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) 
11.30 Panel discussion - Maritime 2050 – Navigating the future

  • How to orientate and align solutions for the next-generation fleet.
  • The problem of implementing new technologies in existing as well as new ships.
  • How to calculate the true return on investment.  
  • Risk assessment and risk reduction measures, balanced against the cost of implementing new technologies. 
  • How to implement new technologies into existing shore organisations and tackle the change management.

Hauke Schlegel, Managing Director Marine Equipment and Systems, German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA)
Dr Lars Greitsch, Managing Director Head of Research and Innovation, MMG – Mecklenburger Metallguss
Patrick Toll, Managing Director, PT-Shipmanagement

14.25 Roundtables summary, remarks and conclusion

14.50 Coffee Break

Case studies and lessons learnt from data and fleet performance projects.

15.30 Utilising and optimising fleet performance

  • Turning data into information - From data collection to vessel performance management.
  • Stakeholders in shipping - Managing and Balancing Interests.
  • Managing vessels and increasing performance - KPIs at work.

Helge Bartels, Deputy COO, Bernhard Schulte

15.50 Benefits from working with trim and draft optimisation in operations

  • Does vessel trim optimisation create efficiencies?
  • Improving the ship's "trim matrix" by identifying and documenting the optimum trim as a function of ship speed and draft to help reduce fuel oil consumption.
  • The barriers that can affect good application of trim optimisation.

Martin Köpke, Fleet Support Centre, Hapag-Lloyd

16.10 Weather routeing and voyage optimisation

  • The key elements to consider in weather routeing and voyage optimisation.
  • Too much information: selecting the right data and data sources.
  • How to improve vessel fuel efficiency and remain safe with routing, based on predicted current, weather conditions and resistance predictions.
  • Commercial, technical and environmental considerations.

Minas Miliaras, Senior Vice President Technical Operations, Carnival Maritime

16.30 Panel discussion – Turning data into insightful decision making - the owners and operators’ perspectives

  • Using data and analytics to unlock operational efficiencies – increasing productivity, extending asset life spans and reducing operating and maintenance costs.
  • Speed optimisation vs. speed reduction: the speed limit debate
  • How to achieve sustainable efficiencies in your operations and take cost out of the business.
  • Do short term measures stifle technical progress and the switch to new technologies?
