Digital Ship - Vessel Performance Optimisation Forum Cyprus 2019

Shipowners, their investors and customers, are looking harder and harder at vessel performance, as regulation pushes up fuel costs, we see carbon emission costs on the horizon, and people recognise that the general trend is to reduce carbon in general. The ship managers which achieve good results will be the ones who get the vessels to manage.

Shipowners, their investors and customers, are looking harder and harder at vessel performance, as regulation pushes up fuel costs, we see carbon emission costs on the horizon, and people recognise that the general trend is to reduce carbon in general. The ship managers which achieve good results will be the ones who get the vessels to manage.

And to do that, they'll need the best which digital technology is able to offer, covering both satcom and software, and make sure they keep their systems secure.

We'll discuss how this can be done at our 12th Digital Ship Cyprus forum on March 14th, Digital Ship - vessel performance optimisation.

Topics to be covered include cybersecurity and vessel rules, a talk from Columbia about their new centre for managing vessel performance, a panel discussion of CIOs and IT managers about the best way to tackle digitalisation.
