11th Optimising Vessel Maintenance Conference

Date: 28th January 2015 - 29th January 2015 Location: London - UK

Increasing Fleet Profitability With Essential Maintenance Strategies & Next Generation Technology

ACI’s 11th Optimising Vessel Maintenance Conference will discuss the latest technical and maintenance management updates in the maritime industry for 2015 and beyond. With the advancement of technologies in vessel maintenance, ship owners are looking to reduce operational cost while improving profitability and reliability across the fleet by utilising these latest technologies. The concerns may still remain over initial investments in Condition Monitoring technology, so our conference will address how to maximise the return on investment in CM/CBM but also consider a variety of other maintenance solutions, such as alternative technologies, innovative maintenance management plans and optimising current established maintenance programmes.

The two day conference will address the pivotal concerns and solutions for ship owners, including how to implement latest technologies into existing maintenance management plans, looking at critical assets across the fleet that require effective maintenance plans, increasing asset lifecycle management in ship structure, while also looking at classification perspectives on the latest technology in the market.
