New environmental regulations including the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention, 2020 marine fuel sulphur cap and pledge to decarbonise shipping by 2050 will have a major impact on the global ship repair and supply markets. So too will the rise of 'smart' maritime technologies including satellite communications, the Internet of Things, the cloud, big data, smartphone apps and automated vessels. Meanwhile, the growth of the marine offshore renewables sector poses new challenges as well as opportunities for vital support vessels.
We are pleased to announce that all these issues will be explored in April 2019 at the Mid Atlantic Ship Repair & Supply Summit, Las Palmas.
A high-level gathering for the ship repair and supply, smart tech, renewable energy, offshore and bunkering communities, the four sessions of this two-day event will focus on changing market dynamics for port service provision, competitive ship repair and supply and explore new investment and business opportunities in Las Palmas:
- Industry 4.0 and Smart Shipyards
- New Strategies within the IMO Emissions Regulation
- Marine Renewable Energies
- Port of Las Palmas: Incentives and Experiences
Driving innovation for generations, the Port of Las Palmas’ full suite of services – from bunkering and 14km of moorings to ship repairs and container terminals – continues to provide a strategic gateway to the Atlantic, Africa, Europe and beyond. With the strength of industry innovation and ecopolitical advantages of its favourable tax regime, the port remains a hub of development and an attractive partner as it moves firmly into Industry 4.0.
