Maritime Showcasing – ALL DAY

Alongside the specific maritime activities, showcasing from maritime corporates and startups will also be present.

Maersk Tankers and DFDS (both days)

Maersk Tankers will unveil a new software platform they have been developing which help with bunker optimization. The platform processes data and provides external officials with transparency and relevant data for decision-making.

 

DFDS will showcase the cutting edge of acquiring and understanding sensor data from ships. DFDS is freeing sensor data which are stopped by the steel we build ships from. By thinking innovative solutions into maritime usage we are doing the impossible – we can connect any onboard system wirelessly into a standardized sensor data infrastructure and that’s where big data changes the world.  Do you want to change the world? Then come with us.

Startups Showcasing

Lorenz Technology will showcase an autonomous drone with applications within security and inspection.

 

NG Solutions will showcase a state-of-the-art engine simulator which is being developed in collaboration with MAN Energy Solutions.
