Sponsored by ExxonMobil What options will be open to ship owners if IMO’s MEPC agrees in October to push for a global sulphur cap of 0.5%? Barely any scrubbers have yet been installed on ships, engine builders are waiting, some will consider continuing with 3.5% sulphur fuels regardless. Shipping is an industry in paralysis. IHS Maritime & Trade, with our partners ExxonMobil, will host a round table discussion at SMM in Hamburg in September at which we provide an overview of the existing position, identify the options available if the date chosen is 2020 or 2022, and offer takeaways to enable robust decision-making when MEPC makes its own position clear.

Give that some 90% of large UK organisations have been hacked and 74% of smaller organisations have come under attack, in the age of the connected ship, cyber security is more important than ever. The IHS Fairplay maritime security survey will seek to establish the nature of cyber-attacks within shipping. It will assess how widespread the problem is, which vessel and ship systems are more vulnerable to attack and which maritime stakeholders are most at risk. This round table will enable ship owners and operators, ship managers, ship builders, port authorities and other maritime stakeholders to safely share this information about this key issue affecting the industry. The results of the survey and the suggested solutions that emerge will be published on and within Safety at Sea magazine.
