Safe and efficient cargo hold preparation
for bulk carriers

Streamlining CII compliance for bulk carriers

Date: Wednesday 22 September - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Register free

The bulk carrier segment will face the greatest challenges of all maritime sectors in achieving positive Carbon Intensity Index (CII) ratings.

This webinar will assess the options available to bulk carrier operators to improve their energy efficiency: fleet renewal, market-driven energy savings technologies and speed reduction. Decisions need to be taken now that balance compliance, efficiency, safety and contractual considerations against the tightest of regulatory deadlines.

Join us as we discuss

  • Fleet renewal. How CII will drive new vessel designs
  • Market-driven energy saving technologies
  • Slow steaming. Reducing cargo intake. Non-linear reduction
  • Vessel size considerations. Performance monitoring and analysis
  • Whether CII is a capex issue rather than a technical issue for bulk carrier operators

Panellists include:

Harshavardhan Bhave Director, Fleet, Pacific Basin Shipping
Martin Crawford-Brunt, Chief Executive Officer, Lookout Maritime
Prashanth Athipar, Principal, Maritime Supply Chain Excellence and Sustainability, BHP
Shimpei Watanabe, Senior Specialist, ClassNK

The real-time revolution for bulk
carrier port calls

Date: Wednesday 22 September - Time: 14:00-14:45 BST

Register free


Real-time information gives bulk carrier operators the opportunity to lower emissions and costs by sailing more slowly, with lower emissions, and arriving at the port just in time and at the moment there is space available. Achieving this objective presents significant challenges for both the bulk carrier and the terminal operator. Chief among these challenges is the need for a degree of information sharing not seen previously as well as the introduction of new standards. This webinar will consider these issues and how digitalisation, IoT and artificial intelligence are enabling the revolution.

Join us as we discuss

  • The current bulk carrier business model
  • Bulk carrier/berthing issues
  • Digitalisation of the supply chain
  • Electronic bills of lading
  • Digital cargo solutions
  • Safety and emission reduction
  • Timeline for the real-time revolution of bulk carrier port calls

Panellists include:

Capt. Sivaraman Krishnamurthi, Founder & CEO, TrimSail Digital Solutions

Edward Senju, Regional CEO, Sansan

Bill Cochrane - Project Lead Bill Cochrane - Project Lead
