DNV GL’s drop-in seminars give you the opportunity to learn about topics that were touched upon during the week in greater detail. The agenda includes a seminar on hybrid and battery technologies, an update on ballast water treatment and a seminar on the new DNV GL rule set. Presentations also cover how bulker owners can gain insights to improve day-to-day operations related to safety and compliance from our operational experience, a glimpse at where the industry is headed from the conclusions from our updated “Shipping 2020” report and the performance management solution ECO Insight, which can help customers monitor and improve the performance of their fleet (see below for more information). The seminars, which take place on the 3rd and are repeated on the 4th of June, are free of charge with no registration required.  With more than 2,500 guests, the Nor-Shipping Barbecue is one of the social highlights during the week. Hosted by DNV GL at our headquarters in Høvik, it is an excellent networking opportunity that attracts some of the most influential people in the industry.  Trade fair visitors can also take part in the new charity Fun Run on Monday, organized by The Mission to Seafarers and Nor-shipping for the first time this year. About 500 people will run for five kilometres along the coastline, through the city centre of Oslo and cross the finish line at the Norwegian Maritime Museum.
