Best Practices in ECA Compliance and Improving Return on Investment & Overall Vessel Efficiency

ACI’s 13th Vessel Efficiency and Fuel Management summit will be taking place in USA on the 22nd – 23rd June 2016.

Special focus will be given to the newly enforced Emission Control Area (ECA) and fuel / sulphur regulations specifically for the USA and companies operating in US Waters. We will further scrutinise the technologies available for measuring 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.
