Your Transformation Update from Fathom World – 03 Nov. 2019

Hello and welcome to the week’s Transformation, 
Do you think that the shipping industry, however one wants to define it, can decarbonise? Probably not without a lot of money, collaboration, and a lot of belief pumped into it. So one hopes they are not in short supply. But what is interesting is this net-carbon zero goal and the definition of that phrase which implies carbon emissions somewhere. This is why shipping cannot do this alone.
This week Sofia Fürstenberg Stott has peered into the latest news from Maersk and Lloyd’s Register on their thoughts on how this journey will start. Meanwhile Samantha Fisk has been talking to DNV GL and Inmarsat about how connected and non-connected systems meet safely. Sticking with our digital shipping industry there’s also news on digital messaging proposals from BIMCO and Singapore’s e-registry ambitions with the help of blockchain.
Also we have a look at some of the latest developments on tackling hull fouling and vessel efficiency with wonderful ideas and solutions, notably with a hull coating solution that takes inspiration from the properties of a water fern called Salvinia.
Hope your week is full and busy
Editorial Director, Fathom World
