EUROPORT: THE PLATFORM FOR MARITIME PIONEERS
‘Pioneers in maritime technology’ in 2013 theme of international maritime exhibition.
Advanced technology and innovative concepts are essential to remain in the lead in the maritime market. Europort 2013 is the meeting place for pioneers in maritime technology.
From 5 to 8 November 2013, more than 1,000 exhibitors will present their solutions for the future in Ahoy Rotterdam. Maritime professionals from all over the world will visit the exhibition for innovative technology, smart solutions and complex shipbuilding. Europort sets the standard.
Raymond Siliakus, Exhibition Manager of Europort: “The slogan ‘Pioneers in Maritime Technology’ goes further along the path set upon by the theme ‘Advanced Technology’ which was the campaign slogan the last two editions of Europort. In this way we carry on building on a strengthening position of Europort as an international leading platform for maritime technology. In the new campaign the nine icons, that symbolize the focus markets of the exhibition, will be utilized again.”
The ship used in the campaign image is the Fast Crew Supplier 5009 ‘Esnaad 711’, an offshore vessel built by Damen Shipyards that is used as a crewing and supply ship as well as safety standby vessel. On this fifty metre long vessel an axe bow concept has been adopted as well as a number of other innovations that optimize the availability of the ship and lower its power consumption. The ship literally bursts through the radar.
Innovations also centre stage in conference programme
Europort offers an extensive conference programme. The core themes are topics such as cost efficiency, sustainability and human capital. The programme will also focus on the upgrading of ships, limitation of emission and fuel consumption, use of LNG and safety concepts. It will also deal with financing models, product life-cycle management and cost of ownership.
The success of the ‘Green Route’ from 2009 and 2011 will have a follow-up in 2013. Visitors are led along a route of exhibitors who make demonstrable contributions to reducing environmental burdens. Totally in line with the theme ‘Pioneers in maritime technology’, Europort will once again organise the Advanced Technology Conferences in collaboration with HME (Holland Marine Equipment).
Leading market players will present innovative examples of advanced technology that will be applied to build the most complex ships on earth.
