Seawork Conferences for 2019

USV in action

The 2019 Seawork Conference will focus on the significant developments made in the Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs) and Hybrid Propulsion sectors.

Both areas have seen major progress since 2018 when the Seawork Conference first explored these fast-moving areas.

The USV market is expected to reach around $US1billion by 2022. USVs can be used across a wide range of applications from bridge and dam monitoring, augmenting and even replacing divers in salvage, port security, fish farms surveillance to research and education.

At Seawork 2018 delegates at the Hybrid Propulsion Conference agreed that hybrid is no longer a concept, it is a reality. At the same time the Port of London placed their order for the UK’s first hybrid pilot boat from Goodchild Marine Services Limited and Volva Penta unveiled a hybrid concept for its IPS propulsion system.  By June 2019 there will no doubt be more tangible demonstrations of hybrid propulsion in the commercial marine sector, provoking lively debate on the growth of the sector at the Conference.

Submissions are now being invited for the Unmanned Surface Vessels Conference and for the Hybrid Propulsion Conference. For more information visit 2019 USV call for papers or 2019 Hybrid call for papers
