London Maritime Management Event 2015

Big data & Performance Management in Shipping 2015, London, 21. May

Marorka is attending the Big data and Performance Management in Shipping 2015, held in London on the 21 May.

The most effective way to reduce harmful emissions from ship operations is to restrict fuel consumption. In light of tightening environmental regulations, a long term trend of volatile fuel prices and increasingly environmentally conscious customers, the need for effective marine energy management is upon us and will grow rapidly in the near future. Effective energy management no longer revolves only around cost savings, rather around environmental awareness, stronger business positions and compliance with regulations.

The topic of Big data and performance monitoring is important, and being the leading global provider of data-driven energy management solutions for the maritime industry, we are more than pleased to share our view on the topic. Jacob Wiegand Clausen, Head of Consulting at Marorka will be speaking at the event, his topic: Data-driven energy management, A holistic approach to energy management using real-time data.

ProfileJacob Wiegand Clausen has a degree in Naval Architecture from the Technical University of Denmark and has been working with technical and operational performance optimisation within the maritime industry since 2007. He started his career at FORCE Technology as Product Manager, was later appointed Innovation Manager at Maersk Maritime Technology and now heading the Consulting department at Marorka.

 About Big Data & Performance Management in Shipping 2015

The Shipping industry is steadily approaching a period of vast change. At a time when environmental concerns and energy prices remain high, savings on fuel can make a significant improvement to margins. Instant, accurate information on fuel consumption and routes can mean the difference between winning a customer and letting them go to a competitor. Meanwhile, increasing levels of automation and onshore vessel control are presenting opportunities to further reduce operational expenditure. Big data has the potential to underpin these cost savings and become the bedrock of future competitive advantage for shipping companies. The question remains, what are the true costs involved in setting it up and running the required systems? And what payoff can ship owners expect to gain from it over what timeframe? Big Data & Performance Management in Shipping 2015 will investigate the industry’s experiences of utilising the data that the shipping industry has at hand including on board systems, satellite, AIS and weather information.
