Europort 85 (continued) congress will look ahead to the fully integrated ship and the use of satel- lite communications for more effi- cient and profitable operations.
Members of the Committee of
Honour, which is under the patron- age of HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, will take part in the congress as chairmen of the sessions. The first session will be chaired by Brian Griffiths, dean of the City University Business
School. In this session J. Jens, immediate past senior deputy direc- tor, Maritime Safety Division of
IMO, will talk on the application of new safety requirements, and an- other senior executive will discuss the planning of ports to handle ships for the 1990s.
The second session of the first day, under the chairmanship of Dr.
N. Nordenstrdm, president of the
International Association of Classi- fication Societies, will be concerned with markets and money. Market- ing strategies and shipping econom- ics is the subject for Prof. Victor
Norman of the Norwegian School of Economics and Business. He will be followed by Otto Norland, a familiar figure at international ship finance meetings, who is now with the Deutsche Schiffahrtsbank AG in
Bremen. He will speak on the mat- ter of finance for ships.
The first session on the second day, chaired by Mr. Jens, will look at the marketing problems facing both the shipowners and shipbuild- ers in the next decade. At this important session Dr. John Park- er, chairman and chief executive officer of Harland & Wolff Ltd., will speak for the shipbuilder, while
W.A. Mulock Houwer, a member of the board of Koninklijke Ned- lloyds Groep nv, will present a ship- owner's projection of the shipping scene in the 1990s and how the chal- lenge of changing trade patterns may best be met.
The second half of the third ses- sion will be of a technical nature, with J. Neumann, managing direc- tor of YARD Ltd., and Dr. Bob
King, a director of YARD, pre- senting a paper that considers some of the ship types likely to be re- quired in the 1990s, and which sug- gests the corresponding machinery installations designed to give the required flexibility and reliability while offering low first cost and low operation costs.
Representatives from Howaldts- werke-Deutsche Werft, the shipyard involved in the study of the "Ship of the Future" for West German ship- owners, will present a technical pa- per entitled "The Equipment Pack- age for the Ships of the Future—A
Challenge to a New Equipment
Generation." Much of the equip- ment at present in use aboard ship is outdated and must be completely redesigned.
The congress will take a realistic look ahead as the fourth and final session under the chairmanship of
George Thebaud, president of the Association Technique Mari- time et Aeronautique, investigates the fully integrated ship and the use of satellite communications for more efficient operations. Three speakers will deal with various as- pects of this important subject—
R.F. Hansford of Racal Marine
Systems; J. Christopher Bell, de- velopment officer of INMARSAT; and Thomas A. Stansell Jr., di- rector of Marine and Survey Sys- tems Ltd.
The Europort Congress Coordi- nating Committee, under the chair- manship of J. Stuart Robinson, director and secretary of the Insti- tute of Marine Engineers, believes that the congress theme, Ships for the 1990s, is of vital interest to the maritime industry, from shipowners and shipbuilders to engine manu- facturers and the designers and sup- pliers of all the auxiliary equip- ment.
