VPO Asia aims to providing shipowners and operators with the tools they need to better understand ship performance and achieve maximum operational efficiency in a rapidly evolving market.
Increasing regulation, fluctuations in bunker prices and growing concern for the global environmental impact of shipping has led to a heightened focus on the way vessels operate and consume fuel, both inside and outside the industry.
The design of a ship, its propulsion systems, onboard communications, route optimisation and navigation software, fuel type, environmental technology and dry-docking procedures are just some of the variables that will have a significant impact on a vessel’s energy efficiency, fuel consumption and overall cost of operation. Even marginal improvements in these areas can combine to create a material difference to a company’s bottom line.
VPO Asia will gather together key industry experts from shipowners , equipment manufacturers , solutions providers and industry bodies who will look at the operational aspects impacting this sector, and lead discussions on how a vessels performance can be leveraged to maximise energy efficiency, cut fuel costs and reduce emissions in this fast-moving modern market?
At our 2nd Singapore vessel performance optimisation forum in October 2019, we will try to develop more clarity around these issues. We are particularly keen to hear from people from shipping companies who have done vessel performance optimisation projects and able to talk about them, or have ideas and experiences to share.
