Vessel Optimisation Webinar Week

09:00 - 09:45

Be sure to join us for Vessel Optimisation Webinar Week

Compliance. Route Planning. AIS. Remote Surveys


Beginning 24 May, we will be holding a series of daily webinars, each meticulously researched and focused on an aspect of vessel optimisation. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled.


Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


Registration is free, please sign up below


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels, please contact Paul Dowling.


Please join us for any or all of the following:


Vessel optimisation: a digitalised approach to CII compliance

Date: Monday 24 May - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now


IMO’s Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is a new measure based on an operational approach that supports IMO’s objective of reducing the carbon intensity of international shipping. The CII is expected to come into force on 1 January 2023, but careful planning, understanding and action is required now to achieve a minimum acceptable CII rating.


Join us as we cover

  • Understanding the CII metric and CII ratings

  • Advantages of a partially laden vessel
  • The effect on charter rates
  • Vessel-specific challenges
  • Performance monitoring and analysis
  • What can be done now

Panellists include:

Grzegorz Zboƛ, Fleet Performance Manager, Dorian LPG
Henning Rebnord, Senior Fuel Performance Specialist, G2 Ocean
Sebastian Ebbing, Technical Advisor, VDR - Verband Deutscher Reeder

Vessel optimisation: route planning that optimises scheduling and profitability

Date: Tuesday 25 May - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now


Achieving a cost-effective, fleet-wide management programme is a complex interplay between technical, operational, commercial and regulatory factors. This webinar will reveal how operators of different vessel types and scale can balance these considerations and unlock significant fuel and energy savings.


Join us as we cover

  • How weather routing can reduce fuel consumption, emissions and the risk of cargo loss
  • The emergence of vessel motion forecasting
  • Stowage planning using artificial intelligence
  • Reducing crew work hours and the risk of human error with automated routeing
  • Bridging the gap between voyage calculation, monitoring and analysis

Panellists include:

Ossi Mettälä, Senior Customer Success Manager, Shipping Solutions, NAPA Group

Risto Kariranta, Ship Performance Manager, Neste
Jacob Snoer Iversen, Business Development Lead, Fleet Optimisation, Wärtsilä Voyage

Vessel optimisation: how AIS optimises
decision making

Date: Wednesday 26 May - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now


Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) support sharper decision making and a competitive edge, especially when it comes to understanding and predicting trade flows, managing and monitoring emissions and optimising vessel performance. New applications are fast emerging that will drive transparent vessel operations and reporting.


Join us as we cover

  • The environmental value of persistent real-time monitoring
  • The importance of situational awareness in just-in-time arrival concepts
  • Cargo tracking and monitoring
  • Tapping into shipping’s vast under-explored data resources
  • Long-range wireless radio frequency technology
  • Lessons learned from the Suez Canal blockage

Panellists include:

Dr. Mikael Lind, Adjunct professor in Maritime Informatics, Chalmers University of Technology and Senior Strategic Research Advisor, Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE)

Kevin Moyer, Director of Strategy, HawkEye 360

Jouni Salo, Business Development and Ecosystems, Unikie
Peter Mabson, President, CEO and Director, exactEarth

Vessel optimisation: IoT and remote
classification and surveying

Date: Thursday 27 May - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now


The pandemic has seen the range of classification and surveys being carried out remotely multiplying with several thousand completed and new applications being rapidly identified and deployed. Initial industry scepticism around the extent a surveyor can truly observe via a laptop or tablet has given way to a broad acceptance whether a three-month tail shaft survey extension, lay-up survey or ISPS audit. Flag administrations have begun approving the use of remote technology for inspections providing more evidence that remote surveys have entered the maritime mainstream.


Join us as we cover

  • Lessons learned from remote inspections during COVID

  • The importance of ship connectivity and bridge systems
  • Drills and machinery tests
  • Assessing the human aspects of the vessel
  • Are drones the future?

Panellists include:

So Kah Meng, Senior Manager, Fleet Operations, PSA Marine
Kris Vedat, Head of IT, P&O Maritime Logistics

Vincent Joly, Digital Solution Manager, Bureau Veritas
