How the Internet Of Things and blockchain can improve supply chain efficiency

The Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain are emerging new technologies in the logistics context that will become mainstream within the next 5 to 10 years, according to research organization, Gartner. Most people are familiar with IoT for smart applications in the living room, but less is known about the tremendous improvements IoT can lead to within the supply chain.

Blockchain technology makes it possible to accumulate generated data in a decentralized database and create a distributed ledger that keeps records of digital transactions. Data in the blockchain is unchangeable and digitally recorded in packages (called blocks). Blockchains are formed by blocks that are chained to other blocks, using a cryptographic signature. They are visible to anyone within a network with the appropriate permissions. This technology will have a major impact on supply chains, potentially reducing delays and making the need for intermediaries obsolete.

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.

How Energy management can save costs and support MRV compliance

The energy efficiency of vessels of all types is a concern for shipping companies and fleet managers, saving costs and limiting emissions. Getting an insight into the optimum use of energy can help shipping companies perform better using the same amount of fuel. In this way, energy management can contribute to achieving a profitable and sustainable business model. There are other reasons for gaining an insight into fuel use and emissions. CO2 emissions from maritime transport, for example, are subject to new regulations from both the European Commission and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

How big data can improve operational performance

Big Data is, without doubt, a game changer. The data revolution has found its way into the shipping sector and, increasingly, shipboard systems are equipped with an IP address and sensors, so that data regarding the performance of each specific component can be transferred ashore. This makes it possible to generate real-time information on various aspects, such as the status of operations, the performance of equipment and any necessary maintenance.

Shipping companies, fleet managers and maritime suppliers are expected to have a vision as to the data they want to generate. Having such a vision will help them achieve better cost efficiency and lower the overall total cost of ownership.

Mini-symposium on the Royal Netherlands Navy replacement programmes

More than five hundred years ago, the Royal Netherlands Navy forged a lasting, cast-iron bond with maritime institutes and companies in the hyper-modern naval shipbuilding industry. Consequently, the Dutch naval shipbuilding cluster has produced many outstanding vessels for this “Launching Customer” – always delivered on time and within the budget. Due to the design and construction of these vessels, the Dutch naval shipbuilding industry can hold its place in the highest segments of the global naval industry. Nonetheless, we cannot take it for granted that upcoming replacement programmes will actually be a driving force for the Netherlands.

After decades of drastic cuts at the Ministry of Defence, the time has come for sensible choices! On 10 November, at Europort 2017, the Netherlands Maritime Technology and the NIDV Foundation will jointly hold a mini-symposium centred on this question: Will the replacement programmes of the Royal Netherlands Navy, as a “Launching Customer”, be a major boost to innovation in the Netherlands? The symposium will discuss the opportunities, challenges and threats connected to the construction of new Dutch submarines, frigates and minesweepers for the Royal Netherlands Navy.

Captains of industry and how to become one

Becoming a captain of industry in the maritime industry is tough and the road to get there is often long and challenging. Along the way one’s character gets tested for, intellect, discipline, perseverance and dedication. However there are more factors influencing a “captain of the industry”. Namely, the core-business of an organisation plays a vital role and asks for a specific skillset. These distinctive and valuable personality traits have to be nurtured and developed throughout the years in order to overcome various hurdles.

YoungShip Rotterdam invites all members and other maritime enthusiasts to participate. During the seminar, themed: ‘Captains of industry and how to become one’, distinctive captains of industry will share a rare insight in their day-to-day (business) lives. Moreover, they will elaborate on the question if their job truly is as glamorous as everyone thinks. But also questions such as: How to become successful, which characteristics are reserved for the best of the best  and which experiences are needed? 
YoungShip Rotterdam has contacted industry-leaders to give an inspiring presentation to the next generation of maritime professionals. The seminar will be concluded with networking drinks. This provides a unique possibility for networking with high-level representatives of prestigious companies and institutions.

Big Data
Tuesday 7 November
14:00 - 17:30

How the Internet Of Things and blockchain can improve supply chain efficiency

The Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain are emerging new technologies in the logistics context that will become mainstream within the next 5 to 10 years, according to research organization, Gartner. Most people are familiar with IoT for smart applications in the living room, but less is known about the tremendous improvements IoT can lead to within the supply chain.

Blockchain technology makes it possible to accumulate generated data in a decentralized database and create a distributed ledger that keeps records of digital transactions. Data in the blockchain is unchangeable and digitally recorded in packages (called blocks). Blockchains are formed by blocks that are chained to other blocks, using a cryptographic signature. They are visible to anyone within a network with the appropriate permissions. This technology will have a major impact on supply chains, potentially reducing delays and making the need for intermediaries obsolete.

How big data can improve operational performance

Big Data is, without doubt, a game changer. The data revolution has found its way into the shipping sector and, increasingly, shipboard systems are equipped with an IP address and sensors, so that data regarding the performance of each specific component can be transferred ashore. This makes it possible to generate real-time information on various aspects, such as the status of operations, the performance of equipment and any necessary maintenance.

Shipping companies, fleet managers and maritime suppliers are expected to have a vision as to the data they want to generate. Having such a vision will help them achieve better cost efficiency and lower the overall total cost of ownership.

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.

How Energy management can save costs and support MRV compliance

The energy efficiency of vessels of all types is a concern for shipping companies and fleet managers, saving costs and limiting emissions. Getting an insight into the optimum use of energy can help shipping companies perform better using the same amount of fuel. In this way, energy management can contribute to achieving a profitable and sustainable business model. There are other reasons for gaining an insight into fuel use and emissions. CO2 emissions from maritime transport, for example, are subject to new regulations from both the European Commission and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
