New series of Smart-Ups in 2017 – next live webinar on Hull Performance Monitoring

After a successful start of our series of online “Smart-Ups” in 2016 Maritime Academy will also continue with the popular short webinar presentations in 2017. Like last year you will be able to register free of charge for the topics that are of interest to you and if you miss the live webinar you can access the recording later to learn about the topic at a more convenient time for you.

Each Smart-Up is conducted by an expert in the relevant field and the audience have the chance to submit their questions to the speaker during the final 15 minutes of the “live” session. This year all those who register for a topic will also be given access to Maritime Academy’s e-learning platform where a recording of the Smart-Up can be viewed at a convenient time. The live Smart Up is only scheduled once this year. Additional supporting documents are also saved with the recording, including a summary of all the questions posed by the attendees, with written answers from the presenter.

Maritime Academy’s goal with the Smart-Up is to introduce the attendees to some of the newest topics being discussed in the maritime industry today in a user-friendly style.

Next Smart-Up: Hull Performance Monitoring and the ISO 19030 – Recently published but already some ideas for improvement, May 24th, 10:00 a.m. CEST

The May Smart-Up is dedicated to the new standard on hull and propeller performance assessment for ships in service. The standard was published in November 2016 and is now the new reference tool in the field of hull performance, providing a useful common basis for discussions between the various stakeholders. As recently experienced in the HullPIC 2017 conference the standard aligns the multitude of performance monitoring tools on the market. In this Smart-up the speaker assesses the delivery of stated aims and suggests ideas for further work. Who better than Geir Axel Oftedahl, former secretary of the working group of ISO 19030, co-organizer of HullPIC and Business Development Director at Jotun Marine Coatings to give us this insight?
