Conference Room 1

Wednesday the 13th. May

09.00 to 11.00
IMO Sulphur regulations part 1

12.00 to 13.00
IMO Sulphur regulations part 2

IMO’s new global sulphur regulations take effect on January 1st. The demands entail that ships are only allowed to use fuel, with a sulphur content of maximum 0.5 % – unless an onboard scrubber is installed.

There is already a great deal of uncertainty on, how the market price will evolve if the low sulphur fuel will be available in sufficient volumes, and the places of demand.

Another question will be, to what extent will the new regulations on sulphur be adhered to, and how strict will the authorities enforce the regulations.

The conference takes place 4 months after the new regulations have taken effect. Thus, it will be the first opportunity to create an overview over, how the regulations work in real life. To create this overview, we will introduce speakers from bunkering companies, shipping companies, authorities, and insurance institutions.

14.00 to 15.00
Invest in Shipping part 1

15.30 to 16.30
Invest in Shipping part 2

Shipping is, at you well know, a cyclic industry, with great up- and downturns. It is difficult to assess, how the industry – and thus, the companies that operate within it – will develop over the coming years. If you read the market correctly, there is a lot of money to be made, but getting it wrong may be very costly.

This conference will give you an insight into the market opportunities, that the shipping industry entails, from an investor’s point of view. We will introduce expert speakers from market analysts, big private and institutional investors and companies listed on the stock exchange.

The conference is directed at both the ordinary private investor, the pension funds and other institutional investors, that would like to investigate the opportunities within the Shipping industry.

Thursday the 14th. May

09.00 to 11.00
The Energy transition part 1

11.30 to 13.00
The Energy transition part 2

It is broadly understood that the era of fossil fuel is coming to an end. New and more environmentally friendly types of fuel will take over. But this will not happen overnight; we will experience a gradual transition. This development is already in progress – but it contains a lot of unknown factors.

What kind of fuel would be your best bet electricity, hydrogen, natural gas, ammonia, nuclear power?? The possibilities are many, and many more can be added. And the choice may differ from coastal waters to oceans.

The conference will give the participants an insight into where we are in the process right now – what kind of fuel can already be found at the marketplace, and what can be expected around the corner. What are the possibilities and the limitations of the individual forms of energy, and how best to tap into them?

The Business of Clean Shipping

With an increasing demand for clean shipping solutions from customers and regulators, business, as usual, is not an option. The IMO has adopted targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050, with the ambition of striving for zero-emission.

During this conference, you can learn how implemented digital solutions contribute to gains in operational efficiency, emissions and return of investment. Furthermore, the Njord Project will be presented, which is a collaboration between Cargill, Maersk Tankers and Mitsui & Co. – aimed at lowering maritime GHG emissions through existing fuel-saving technologies and exploring new technical solutions will be presented.

You will also learn about how collaboration can be a catalyst for commercially viable green shipping and you’ll bring back home a new cost-benefit model for assessing different clean shipping investments.

12:30-13:30 Lunch and networking (optional)


  • ”Collaboration as a catalyst for commercially viable green shipping – The case of the Getting to Zero Coalition and the Poseidon Principles”

    Kasper Søgaard, Head of Research, Global Maritime Forum

  • “Sustainable Business Models for Clean Shipping”

  • CASE: Njord project – Fuel-saving reductions as an investor case and of the benefit for the shipowners and environment?
    Steen Sander Jacobsen, Head of Technology and Innovation, Maersk Tankers

  • CASE: “Clean shipping through digitalization of operations and processes”

    How implemented digital solutions for ship operations and port logistics contribute to gains in operational efficiency gains, emissions and return of investment for the 3 cases: Island Ferries, DFDS and J. Lauritzen.
