China Maritime Week 2012 draws to a close today, with another excellent roster of events scheduled for the final day.
First on the agenda is the Cleans Seas, Ships, Shores and Ports conference, offering a showcase of the best maritime sustainability practices. Sponsored by Det Norske Veritas, the conference will be held in Meeting Room S427 of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 09:00 to 17:00. With an emphasis on the pragmatic, non-extremist side of the environmental debate, the event boasts a line-up of distinguished speakers such as World Ocean Council (WOC) founder Paul Holthus and INTERMEPA’s Neil Baird.
New research that could revolutionise slow-speed marine diesel engines will be showcased when the TCC Institute for Emissions Reduction in Marine Diesel Engines (TIER-MDE) presents an update on potentially game-changing nano-pulse technology. In Meeting Room S424 of the HKCEC between 10:00 and 12:30, the team will discuss how transient plasma ignition technology could improve combustion and reduce harmful emissions in two-stroke low-revs engines.
Product presentation seminars will be taking place throughout the day in Meeting Room S423 of the HKCEC. In the first session, from 11:00 to 13:30, AMOT will be presenting its control, safety and hazardous area solutions. That will be followed by marine propulsion manufacturer Wärtsilä China, between 14:00 and 17:00.
The Hong Kong branch of the Nautical Institute will conduct a seminar, “Challenges of Electronic Navigation”, in Meeting Room S424 of the HKCEC from 14:00 to 18:00. The Institute will also be hosting post-seminar cocktails and snacks from 18:15, bringing the day to a relaxing close.
All of the events are free to attend and open to all. Just register at the desk at the entrance to Hall 5G of the HKCEC, where the China Maritime 2012 exhibition will be continuing all day up to 17:00. Your badge will be required for entrance to many of the events.
