Innovators and Industry to meet in Southampton

Mon, 11 April 2016

The Next Generation Marine Power & Propulsion Conference networking event focuses on viable solutions for vessels of all sizes. Over 20 expert speakers will highlight a range of unique opportunities for the maritime sector.

Attendees at the two day Conference and one day Workshop from 26-28 April 2016 will include commercial and military end-user organisations, boat builders, engine manufacturers, mechanical and electrical engineers, naval architects and legislators. 

The event brings together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to highlight the potential use of innovative power and propulsion systems. The objective is to identify a range of genuine solutions for workboats, pilot boats, wind farm support vessels, survey vessels, scientific research craft, fishing vessels, superyachts, patrol craft, military and unmanned craft.

The programme covers three phases;‘Here and Now Technology’ - considers how the UK and global marine industry can utilise the latest engineering. ‘Next Generation Systems’ - are within a few years of commercial release. ‘Innovation and Future Possibilities’ - are pushing the boundaries far and wide.

The workshop day looks at ‘new marine energy’. Fast moving sessions focus on informal discussion and industry experience from subject matter experts including Lloyds Register and DNV-GL. A relevant topic is high energy battery installations, including Lithium-ion. The ‘hybrid’ sessions focus on simple and viable business cases as presenters highlight how fuel can be saved, maintenance costs reduced and engine life extended.

The knowledge gained from presentations and networking sessions will help to shape long term decisions that lead to improvements for in-service systems and procurement of next generation vessels.
