We kick off the week with the DNV GL Conference. It will take place Monday, 29 May, a day before the trade fair officially opens, from 11:00–15:30 in the Felix Conference Centre in Oslo, Aker Brygge. With a focus on emissions regulations, DNV GL experts and industry stakeholders will highlight some of the key aspects to take into consideration regarding the implementation of the global 0,5 per cent sulphur cap and the expectation to reduce CO2 emissions. Topics such as technology choices, fuel availability, price scenarios and enforcement will be addressed.
On Tuesday, 30 May, DNV GL’s Group President & CEO Remi Eriksen will participate in the panel debate at the Nor-Shipping Opening Conference (9:00-12:15). It will address the impact of digitalization and increased sustainability as drivers for change in the maritime industry.
At the DNV GL Forum, which will take place from 31 May to 1 June (11:00–16:00) in the Thon Hotel Arena next to the exhibition halls, a selection of DNV GL experts will give one-hour-sessions on a range of topics. This year’s presentations include a feasibility study for an advanced, environmentally friendly container vessel design, low carbon pathways and the digitalization of classification services, as well as the implementation of upcoming environmental regulations.
We also look forward to welcoming visitors to the DNV GL booth (Hall D, stand D02-12), where DNV GL experts will be available to answer any questions or enquiries. Several signing ceremonies will also take place at the booth throughout the week.
In the new exhibition Hall A (A1-39), which will be dedicated to Disruptive Sustainability, DNV GL invites visitors to go on a Digital Journey with the classification society. This experience will take viewers into the virtual world, where DNV GL will look at how digitalization has already transformed the shipping world and the developments DNV GL expects to see in the future.
