Diverse value added at NEVA Conference

August 15, 2017

The last slots are being filled in the NEVA 2017’s Conference Programme, with the agenda newly augmented by sessions with a sharp business focus.

No other event approaches the opportunity provided by NEVA to offer insight into Russia’s maritime, inland shipping, shipbuilding and ports industries, with participation attracting leaders from both the private and public sectors. New sessions confirmed include a seminar on modern technologies for ship fire protection and video monitoring, a day-long event for designers dedicated to 'PROSOFT solutions' for marine applications, and a panel discussion covering the financing of new Sea and River Vessels.

This year’s NEVA conference programme is already distinguished by its responsiveness to a changing maritime landscape. Exemplary is a Disruptive Technology session devised by the National Technology Initiative MARINET to examine breakthrough technologies within the global marine industry in the coming decades. Earlier this month, United Shipbuilding Corporation subsidiary Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard said it would implement a project to create a smart and digital shipyard over the coming three years.

International participants are also being given the opportunity to drive the shipbuilding debate at NEVA 2017, notably through the ‘Optimisation of Design Procedures for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair’ round table organised by software Netherlands-based developer CADMATIC in association with the Makarov State University.

Among other programme highlights will be a round table covering ‘Criteria for Localisation of Shipbuilding Production and Ship Equipment Manufacturing in the Russian Federation’ and the 2nd International Conference ‘Renewing the Fishery and Fish Research Fleet’.
