  • Smart Marine Ecosystem Innovations

    Jun 26, 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM (ET)
    We are all seeing a very significant shift in the marine industry in demands for new technologies for alternative energy sources to reduce the use of fossil fuels. This manifests itself into new solutions being developed to adopt new fuels in vessels, reduce emissions and enhance digital technologies. Wartsila has made a significant investment in building our capabilities to react to the market disruptions we are seeing today and in the future. The addition of companies such as Transas, Guidance Marine, Eniram, etc, combined with the additions in E&A in the past 2 years, allow Wartsila to innovate and bring to market advanced technologies. This presentation will discuss Wartsila’s focus on the Smart Marine Ecosystem and the innovations we are developing in response. Samples of these technologies include wireless inductive charging, autodocking systems, remote operations of vessels, advanced vessel positioning technologies, integration of battery, hydrogen fuel, shore charging, and other energy solutions, etc, will be presented.         AGENDA 17:00 – Deacon Brodies for Meal 18:30 – Network 19:00 – Section's updates 19:45 – Short Break 20:00 – Presentation 21:00 – Networking 22:00 – Meeting end time                      PRESENTER Mark Keneford spent 27 years in the Canadian Navy as a marine systems engineering officer and project manager.
