Arsenio Dominguez, Vice Chairman, Marine Environment Protection Committee, IMO will be delivering a keynote address ‘Where we are now – progress to date’ on the opening morning of the 3rd IMarEST Ship Propulsion Systems Conference (SPS 2012), being held in London on Tuesday 20 – Wednesday 21 November.
The two day conference features the IMO’s Tier III requirements and the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) formula for developing increasingly fuel efficient ship designs as its theme.
Throughout SPS 2012, presentations will detail how the respective requirements might be met and address concerns for the impact they will have on the future of marine propulsion,” explains Professor John Carlton FREng, Professor of Marine Engineering, City University London and Immediate Past President of IMarEST. “The level of technical discussion – always the aim of Institute events – will be enabled through in-depth presentations and by allowing sufficient time for full consideration of the propulsion issues of current concern to owners and the marine industry.”
Delegates and speakers from China, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Italy, Japan, Norway, The Netherlands and the UK will all deliver content for the conference which is now in its third year.
