17th Vessel Efficiency & Fuel Management Summit

Date: 29th August 2018 - 30th August 2018 Location: Singapore

ACI’s 17th Vessel Efficiency and Fuel Management Summit will be the best place to identify priority areas for international action against Global Sulphur Cap 2020 and exchange best practices in fuel management and discuss the latest developments in maritime energy-efficient technologies.

With the enforcement of Emission Control Area (ECA) and fuel / sulphur regulations across the world as well as nearing to the Global Sulphur Cap of 2020 to be implemented, this conference will specifically focus on the regulations affecting vessel operations and companies in Singapore 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. Also, study existing collaboration models and sustainability journeys of ship owners, port authorities and terminal operators.

Essentially, the focus will be on how shipowners & the maritime industry can benefit from higher return on investment (ROI) 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, Ship-managers and associated solution providers, fuel solutions, IT and data associations, consultants, and technology providers.
