10 September 2011

ICOMIA, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, is to hold its Workshop on New Technologies at METS this year for the third year running.

The workshop is tailored for boatbuilders operating internationally and those who self-certify their boats, says ICOMIA, although anyone interested in the speakers and subjects is encouraged to attend.

Information regarding standard applications and the latest in manufacturing will also be covered.

Highlights include naval architect Gerard Dykstra discussing his vision of future boat design, while Jorge Nasseh of the Brazilian marine industry association ACOBAR will speak about boatbuilding regulations/standards in Brazil.

Other presentations include:

  • Fuel Cells in Marine Application — Tom Chicken, Fuel Cell Systems
  • Quiet Boats – Sound Quality in Cabins — Hannu Nykanen, VTT
  • A Simplified Approach to Scantlings Calculation — Robin Loscombe, Southampton Solent University
  • An Industry Approach to Avoid Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing — Udo Kleinitz, ICOMIA and John Adey, ABYC
  • Structural Design of Details in FRP-stiffeners — Markku Hentinen, VTT

“These are the absolute best speakers we could have hoped for,” says ICOMIA’s technical manager Udo Kleinitz. “I’m happy to say that we have improved Workshop on New Technologies beyond all expectations with our 2011 outline agenda.”

This year’s event is free to attend but early registration is encouraged to avoid disappointment.
