    Innovation Stage: Autonomous Technology Driving the Future of Commercial Maritime Operations

    The need for advanced autonomy in marine applications has grown considerably in the past decade. A number of high-profile incidents have shown how human error can have serious consequences and consequently highlighted how the state of the art in autonomous technology can help prevent these incidents from occurring in the future. The purpose of the presentation is to create awareness around autonomous and unmanned operations, how they mitigate risk on our seas, and increase the operational efficiency and bottom line of operators. Manual operations are still plaguing the industry, while the technology to move the industry forward exists. To understand how Sea Machines is enabling this today, we dive into the technology employed and SM series.

    Innovation Stage: Ship hull inspection and reporting at scale with drones & Al

    With new regulations to improve ship efficiency and reduce species invasion, the number of underwater hull inspections is expected to increase greatly. But how can we scale them effectively, from in-water inspection to report generation? Notilo Plus has designed a suite of technologies that will enable fast and replicable inspections as well as automatic, consistent report generation. Using AI algorithms for image recognition, it classifies hull images according to their degree of fouling, coating conditions, and generates insights that are compliant with the best standards of the industry. Firstly designed for the Seasam ROV with localization capability of every image on the General Arrangement plan of the hull, it is now available for all service providers, regardless of their inspection method. Any underwater, diving or ROV video can now be turned into actionable recommendations on Notilo Cloud platform. It opens the door for better hull management, optimized cleaning patterns and predictive models for shipowners and ship managers at a fleet scale, thus facilitating compliance with the strictest regulations. Seasam and Notilo Cloud are now used by shipowners and service providers around the globe, and are selected by DNV on Veracity platform.

    Innovation Stage: Get a grip on the toxic hazard - onboard safety concepts for the use of ammonia as fuel

    For decades vessels have been using ammonia as refrigerant in their refrigeration systems. Nowadays ammonia is seen as a potential green fuel for the use in marine engines. GEA has a very long tradition and track record with the use of ammonia as refrigerant both on seagoing vessels (Cruise liners, Reefers, Fishing Trawlers) as well as in land-based applications i.e., Indoor Ski Resorts, Ice Skating rinks, Deep Freeze warehouses, etc. All experiences gained by GEA in this area, especially with regards to the safety aspects, are now being used to develop & design systems for the use of ammonia as green and safe fuel.

    Young Corporation Award

    If our industry is to stay ahead in the global competition and solve tomorrow's challenges, we are fully dependent on attracting the brightest brains, the hard working and innovative employees, and manage to compete with several other main industries on critical competence. We also need to become more visible and promote the exciting and global aspects few other industries can show for. This is an important job for the industry as a whole, yet cannot succeed unless individual companies show their investments and dedication in the next generation employees. This has become even more pressing during the unique challenges the global pandemic has created for our industry and seafarers. To promote the companies that go the extra mile in their efforts on focusing on and promoting young professionals in the maritime industry. This will be awarded to a company within the international maritime industry, which has excelled at one or more of the following criteria; Those that promote its young leaders; Those that drive forward its young talent; Companies that devote time & money on building the competence of young people in the organisation; Clear defined trainee programs or other competence enhancing programs; And finally those that support initiatives within the maritime community.

    Innovation Stage: Innovations in maritime education

    During this presentation STC Group and Rotterdam Maritime Institute (RMI) will present two innovation in maritime education:

    RAAST - experimenting with autonomous sailing during the Microtransat Challenge.
    RMI is working hard on the RAAST- Rotterdam Atlantic Autonomous Sailing Team project. With this 2.4 meter long autonomous sailboat built by students and teachers, the emphasis is on surviving a crossing over the Atlantic Ocean. The boat will be built in several stages with the help of sponsors from the industry, before finally going sailing in the summer of ’22. Practical learning and collaboration with colleagues and students from various technical courses of the Hogeschool Rotterdam gives an impulse to the motivation and skills that prepare for the labor market. How do you see the future of autonomous sailing? And how can we best prepare our students for this? We are happy to spar with you about possibilities for collaboration, for example about how to integrate your system or concept into the boat in collaboration with our students; a great opportunity to get to know our young professionals!

    AB INITIO - state-of-the-art and sustainable training vessel A new sustainable, usable, recognizable, innovative and future-proof training ship for students. The place for a flying career start within the maritime sector and a floating lab for inland shipping innovation. That's AB INITIO.

    In the autumn of 2021, the outfitting of the new training vessel AB INITIO will start. This project is being carried out by Concordia Damen on behalf of educational institution STC Group. This training ship has been developed from the drawing board by pupils, students and employees of STC Group. We will take you on a bird's-eye view of how this ship has been developed and how we want to use this ship to prepare powerful professionals for a great maritime career.

    Innovation Stage: Future-proof maritime education

    How to address future maritime industry needs in maritime education?

    Attention maritime industry and lecturers and students of maritime schools or training institutes! We invite you to an interactive discussion. What requirements should maritime education meet, in your opinion? Which skills are still lacking in recent graduates? What trends are happening in the sector, and how can we best prepare students for this? We would be happy to talk to you and are curious about your opinion and ideas.

    Next to an interactive discussion, we would like to take the opportunity to present the project SkillSea to you.

    The four-year SKILLSEA project is launched to ensure that maritime professionals in Europe possess key digital, green and leadership skills for the rapidly changing maritime labour market. Technology and digitalisation are transforming the shipping industry. 'Smart’ ships are coming into service, creating demand for a new generation of competent, highly-skilled maritime professionals. Europe is a traditional global source of maritime expertise. SkillSea seeks to not only produce a sustainable skills strategy for European maritime professionals but also to increase the number of these professionals - enhancing the safety and efficiency of this vital sector.
