Fleet Renewal – Building the Ships of the Future

Shipowners are called today to make fleet renewal or expansion decisions while there is no clarity or certainly on optimal fuel and engine types and vessel designs for the ships of the future. Furthermore, increased competition among shipyards offering attractive packages adds to the newbuilding dilemma. This panel will discuss alternative strategies considered by Greek shipowners who are known for embracing technological innovation. The Greek owned fleet is today among the youngest in the world with an average age well below that of the global fleet.
