Located in Brussels close to the very heart of the European global shipping and marine industries’ three key ports, Zeebrugge, Antwerp and Rotterdam, Marine Maintenance World Expo has been established to bring key industry stake-holders together at a free to enter exhibition focused on new technologies and marine industry innovation.
Marine Maintenance is attracting operations directors, marine superintendents, and fleet maintenance chiefs from the world’s shipping lines, off-shore rigs and naval defence fleets, as well as managing directors and maintenance equipment specifiers from marine maintenance and repair service providers and dry docks.
Exhibitors include companies such as Harland and Wolff, MAN Diesel & Turbo, Johnson Controls, Prüftechnik, Rustibus, Parker Kittiwake, Scandinavian Boiler Services, Tru-Marine and Metalock, putting the latest and next-generation maintenance tools, dry docks, ship repair yards, monitoring technologies, service-plan providers, time-compression technologies, under the same roof.
Marine Maintenance World Expo also features a free-to-attend conference where key industry leaders will give more than 30 presentations to attendees and members of the press. The three-day conference will give participants vital industry insights across a broad range of topics, giving them the inside steer on the future of marine maintenance and repair matters.
On the agenda are topics including; planning and optimizing maintenance in the offshore industry; oil condition monitoring; optical-fiber sensors for structural health monitoring; the importance of spare parts for effective onboard maintenance; coatings and surface preparation; fuel performance and engine monitoring, lifecycle and asset management and case studies in avoiding cat fines and FPSO steel renewal without using a dry dock.
Another important feature of this unique expo is the Technology Demonstration Area – again a free-to-attend attraction within the exhibition hall that will see some of the world’s leading suppliers demonstrate their latest and next-generation products, exclusively to attendees. Almost 30 such demonstrations will be taking place over the course of the 3-day event, giving visitors the chance to view presentations of the technologies behind the products and services on display at the show.
The demonstration area is designed to enable visitors to gain first-hand experience of the solutions presented by our exhibitors, and to gain a better understanding of their value and potential application.
The path to minimizing time in dry dock or repair starts in Brussels, September 10-12, 2013.
