16th Vessel Efficiency & Fuel Management Conference

Date: 21st June 2017 @ 8:00 am - 22nd June 2017 @ 5:00 pm Location: Houston - Texas - USA

Complete fuel compliance for ECA and improving overall vessel energy efficiency

ACI’s 16th Vessel Efficiency and Fuel Management summit will be taking place in Houston, USA on the 21-22 June 2017.

With the recently enforced Emission Control Area (ECA) and fuel / sulphur regulations across the world as well as the Global Sulphur Cap of 2020 to be implemented, this conference will specifically focus on the regulations affecting vessel operations and companies in US Waters. We will further scrutinise the technologies available to assist with compliance as well as innovations to track and manage performance and specific fuel-efficiency improving equipment, plus analysis and practical feedback of how to increase overall efficiency and performance by minimising the fleet’s energy demands.

Essentially, the focus will be on how shipowners & the maritime industry can benefit from higher Return on Investment and optimise their performance with the latest vessel efficiency technology available. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the Maritime industry, including Shipowners, Shipmanagers and associated solution providers, fuel solutions, IT and data associations, consultants, and technology providers.
