The shipping industry’s need to take decisive action to reduce its carbon footprint is the driving force behind the Marine Innovation Summit 2023, which will deep dive into pressing topics of how to achieve decarbonisation with the support of digitalization, and emission reduction technologies.

Registration is open, free and the event will be streamed live from Alfa Laval’s head office in Lund, Sweden on 28 March 2023 at 9:00 am CEST. The Marine Innovation Summit is a forum that convenes experts across the industry to discuss the advancements in the global maritime industry that can accelerate its transition towards sustainable shipping. This year, the event will bring together industry leaders to discuss the evolving carbon management landscape in the maritime sector. The summit will engage prominent industry leaders to not only discuss the optimal way of using digitalisation and other green technologies but also explore retrofitting opportunities for existing ships, to enable decarbonisation of the entire shipping landscape.

Sameer Kalra, President, Alfa Laval Marine Division, said: “Without embracing new technologies to optimise ship operations, we risk falling behind global emissions reduction targets. Engaging diverse stakeholders across the industry to have forward-looking discussions around existing and emerging technologies will accelerate our journey towards sustainable shipping.”

Through discussions and presentations, participants will gain a better understanding of the latest technologies, opportunities, and challenges that the transition towards sustainable shipping brings along with it. The Marine Innovation Summit 2023 will bring together a diverse group of industry leaders, including representatives from shipping companies, environment committees and research institutes, for a two-hour live-streamed event. During two panel discussions, the speakers and panellists will share their insights on key technologies, innovations, and possibilities that can be leveraged by the maritime industry to achieve emission reduction targets.

A keynote speech will be given by Johannah Christensen, CEO Global Maritime Forum, on the important topic titled ‘The challenges and opportunities facing international shipping in its quest for decarbonisation.’

Another speaker will be Allan Nygård Bertelsen, CEO Hydro Hull Cleaning, who will shed light on the topic ‘Is Robotic Hull Cleaning an idea whose time has come?’ He will also touch upon the relationship between hull cleaning, vessel performance and fuel consumption together with solutions available to overcome the challenges of hull cleaning.
