ShipRepair & Conversion Is A Maritime Exclusive
Touted as the only recognized international event designed for the ship repair market, this year's ShipRepair & Conversion Exhibition will be the focal meeting point for a variety of companies involved in the industry.
Scheduled for November 15-16 at London's Grand Olympia Hall, the exhibition offers immediate exposure to shipowners, operators and managers who are looking to expand their horizons within the realm of the ship repair industry. With last year's event proving to be the most successful ever, Lloyd's List Events, the exhibition's organizer, has decided to host the conference in a much larger space - offering attendees the opportunity to meet with myriad of companies on an international level.
Just some of the companies scheduled to be at the exhibition are: Rolls Royce Marine Systems, Wartsila, MacGregor Group, Cygnus Instruments, Cenal Shipyard and MMC Europe. In addition to networking with these, and more than 300 other companies that are expected to be present, attendees may want to sit-in on the various technical presentations.
Scheduled to speak on the conference's inaugural day is Brett Martin of Cammell Laird Holdings and Lock Parker, CTO of Acromit — both of who will debate on the state of the industry. Subsequent to this session will be a presentation titled, "Tin-free Anti-fouling - How Will the New Regulations Effect Ship Repair?" by Dr.
David Arnold of Jotun Henry Clark.
Additional headliners include: "Main Engine Overhaul — Learning From the Princess of Scandinavia"; and "The FPSO Conversion Market." Those interested in attending or exhibiting at the conference should contact Christine Weaver, tel: +44 (0) 20 7453 5438; or fax: +44 (0) 20 7453 2231. Registration can also be completed online by logging onto the conference's official site at www.shiprepairex.com don't happen," Jaeger said.
Larry Baxter (SWM's dock operators) was able to use the system right away and is confident in ADOC II's performance.
IDAC WEST has also recently developed another device for SWM known as an Attitude Monitoring System (AMS).
It is essentially a scaled down version of ADOC II that works directly with their manual control console (see figure 3). It focuses on monitoring the drafts only thereby providing information on a separate computer's monitor that represents deflection information. Extensive alarming features are also built-in to AMS. At SWM, both the AMS and ADOC II systems are linked for data synchronization that also allows calibration to be greatly simplified.
"We are now able to retrofit any floating drydock with a scalable solution that can range from monitoring deflection to a full blown control system depending on an individual companies requirements," Smith said.
"This type of flexibility makes of services very unique in the Ship Repair Industry." Circle 37 on Reader Service Card
