  • Scheduled for December 1-2, 2014 in New Orleans

    Dry Dock Conference 2014 is the eighth in a series of international Conferences held every two to three years.  This year’s conference will be held December 1-2, 2014 in New Orleans. Among the highlights of the upcoming New Orleans’ conference will be a series of presentations from experts on unique drydockings, heavy lift difficulties and ship launching challenges.
    The goal of the conference is to educate and provide technological updates to personnel in the dry dock industry. The papers and presentations promise to cover a broad spectrum of topics dealing with a multitude of issues facing the dry dock community. Professionals from around the globe will share their endeavors in planning, financing, permitting, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining dry dock facilities. Conference attendees should leave with a greater understanding of the challenges faced by the industry, as well as insight into how to overcome them.
    The conference provides a venue to learn about new products and services, and generate contacts. Topics for this year’s conference include:
    -    damaged ship dry docking
    -    dry dock failure analysis
    -    dry dock maintenance issues
    -    economic aspects of drydocking
    -    establishing a dry dock standard
    -    graving dock repairs/upgrades
    -    heavy lift operations
    -    travel lifts
    -    unique drydockings
    -    vertical lifts
    -    vessel launchings
    -    vessel transfer operations
    The conference is recognized as an outstanding opportunity to network with the hundreds of  practitioners, researchers, and specialists at the leading edge of the dry dock industry. Drydocking has long been a small but vital part of the ship building and repair industry and the current global economic climate puts an added premium on dry docking crews to boost their efficiency. With larger and more complex ships creating new dry docking challenges, this upcoming conference is a great chance for those the maritime industry to gain new insights into this ever changing field. Attend Dry Dock Conference 2014 to prepare yourself and your teams to compete in this vital aspect of the shipbuilding and repair industry.
