Officially supported by the Kuwait Ministry of Defence and the Kuwait Naval Force, this year’s event will focus on enhanced maritime surveillance and the importance of international maritime law in the ever-evolving threat landscape of the region, the significance of which was highlighted by NATO’s first regional centre within the Gulf being opened in Kuwait earlier this year.
Meet Christian von Oldershausen, Segment Director Navy at DNV GL, who will held a presentation on "Updating the safety standards on board offshore patrol vessels" on the first conference day. In this presentation he will outline that ensuring protection of offshore vessels is critical for the overall safeguarding of the ship’s vital assets, including the captain and the crew. There needs to be continual equipment improvement and trainings on-board to prevent hazards from occurring as a result of unpreparedness. This session will also address the latest in-fleet safety and commercial situational awareness as well as the most efficient methods of threat aversion to non-combat vessels.
