WFN Head Office were pleased to announce the following exhibition partnerships:

 

WFN Collaborates with 21st Ballast Water Management Conference

 

 

 

ACI’s 21st Ballast Water Management Conference will once again bring together senior executives and experts from Shipping Companies, technology providers, leading associations and top service providers to discuss the latest challenges and developments making an impact on the industry.

 

The 2017 event took place in Antwerp, Belgium and brought  together industry professionals from organisations including BIMCO, Bocimar, Port of Amsterdam,  DHI, Alfa Laval, Lloyd’s Register and many more.

 

This year’s edition will look at the current state of the industry in depth and look into potential new solutions to ship-owners, as well as analyse the experiences faced by the industry since the ratification took place. The Conference will also attempt to look into the future of the industry and predict how things will develop in the coming years.

 

Due to time implications and various regulation changes many questions are left to be answered. How will type approval effect the deadlines for compliance? What current options are available for the ship-owners? How are suppliers going to guarantee the systems meet requirements for both regulatory bodies?

 

ACI’s 21st Ballast Water Management Summit will provide essential, expert guidance to shipowner/operators on how to prepare for and manage the BWT Systems in terms of selection, installation and technical operations, as well as advice on compliance, PSC and regulation once the convention is in place. The conference will also address Type Approval and system excellences for the BWT System Manufacturers. Visit Website

 

WFN Collaborates with 17th Vessel Efficiency and Fuel Management Summit

 

 

 

ACI’s 17th Vessel Efficiency and Fuel Management Summit will be the best place to identify priority areas for international action against Global Sulphur Cap 2020 and exchange best practices in fuel management and discuss the latest developments in maritime energy-efficient technologies.

 

With the enforcement of Emission Control Area (ECA) and fuel / sulphur regulations across the world as well as nearing to the Global Sulphur Cap of 2020 to be implemented, this conference will specifically focus on the regulations affecting vessel operations and companies in Singapore Waters. We will further scrutinise the technologies available to assist with compliance as well as innovations to track and manage performance and specific fuel-efficiency improving equipment, plus analysis and practical feedback of how to increase overall efficiency and performance by minimising the fleet’s energy demands. Also, study existing collaboration models and sustainability journeys of ship owners, port authorities and terminal operators.

 

Essentially, the focus will be on how shipowners & the maritime industry can benefit from higher return on investment (ROI) and optimise their performance with the latest vessel efficiency technology available. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the Maritime industry, including Shipowners, Ship-managers and associated solution providers, fuel solutions, IT and data associations, consultants, and technology providers.

WFN Collaborates with 22nd Ballast Water Management Conference

 

 

 

100+ Ballast water industry professionals will come together to unravel the international ballast regulation mesh, discuss successful system installations, share solution driven case studies to handle technical and operational failures and create resilient ballast water treatment strategies.

 

Due to time implications and various regulation changes many questions are unanswered:

 

How will type approval affect the deadlines for compliance?
What current options are available for the ship-owners?
How are suppliers going to guarantee the systems meet requirements for both IMO & UGSC?


All these questions would be answered at ACI’s 22nd Ballast Water Management Conference will provide essential, expert guidance to shipowner/operators on how to prepare for and manage the BWT Systems in terms of selection, installation and technical operations in accordance with the compliances. It would provide an ideal platform for industry leading researchers, technology developers, industrial players and supply chain partners to converge. Bringing the pioneers together the conference aims to promote the methodologies, exchange of ideas and the way forward to commercialisation. Visit Website

 

WFN Collaborates with African Ports and Rail Evolution 2018

 

 

 

National development plans across the continent are prioritising transport infrastructure upgrade and development projects. Substantial growth in trade volumes is predicted with total corridor volumes on road and rail expected to increase from 13.6 million tonnes by 2020 to 40 million tonnes by 2040 and the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCTFA) set to create the largest free trade zone in the world and increase intra-Africa trade by 52% by 2020.

 

Against this backdrop, Africa’s largest transport event, African Ports and Rail Evolution, welcomes dozens of African ports and rail authorities and thousands of qualified maritime, transport and logistics professionals to optimise hinterland and maritime connectivity, improve efficiency of rail networks and define the future of maritime and overland shipping across the continent. Efficient and effective transport systems and modern ports and railways are key to unlocking new trade opportunities and export markets. Visit Website

The conference is focused on transportation and installation of heavy-lift, oversized and project cargoes in the independent & neutral Turkmenistan.

 

On the whole in 2017, the Turkmen economy went on demonstrating fine macroeconomic performance. As of the end of the year, the GDP growth reached 6.5 percent which is 0.3 percent higher than in 2016. The fuel and energy sector – the flagship of national economy and industry – is under dynamic development. Financial and social stability is intact accompanied by prompt response to challenges from the outside and adaptation to changes of economic conditions.

 

High economic indicators were ensured by active investment policy. As emphasized by the President of the country Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, huge funds are currently being invested in the economy – about USD 50 billion. Approximately 1,700 major facilities costing over USD 42 billion are under construction in the country. The share of investments in the country’s economy is more than 32% of GDP at the end of the 1st quarter of the present year. Among the most important investment projects under implementation is Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) Gas Pipeline Construction Project. Construction in the Afghan part of the gas pipeline kicked off this February. Construction of Turkmenbashi Sea Port is finished; construction of the gas chemical complex for production of polyethylene and polypropylene, development of the Galkynysh Gas Field and other critical infrastructure projects are under completion.
