Power and Propulsion Alternatives for Ships
The current use of alternative fuels and renewable energy sources within the shipping industry is still relatively low. Growing environmental legislation and concerns are driving the need to develop and apply innovative alternative power and propulsion technology for ships. The industry must embrace the challenger of designing cleaner lower carbon emission ship. This conference seeks to investigate some of these alternatives, including; -Wind powered or wind assisted propulsion -Alternative fuel systems: LNG, methanol, hydrogen, etc -Renewable fuels; biofuels, ethanol, Dimethyl Ether (DME) algae-based fuel, etc -Pure electric and hybrid electric propulsion -Batteries and fuel cells -Solar power. Organised by The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). More information and registration: https://www.rina.org.uk/Alternative-ship-power

CEDA Dredging Days 2017
CEDA Dredging Days 2017, themed around sustainable dredging, will focus on dredging projects that can add value to nature, as well as to society and economy, and minimise potential negative impacts. Highlights will include the launch of a new book, prepared by CEDA in association with International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) members, that is expected to become a new standard guide for the dredging community, and a technical programme with 19 peer-reviewed papers presented by international experts. An interactive session will focus on contractual problems and how to avoid them.
