THE FLEET RENEWAL CHALLENGE – OPTIONS FOR THE EXISTING FLEET & BUILDING THE SHIPS OF THE FUTURE
Fleet maintenance and fleet renewal are key issues shipowners deal with today, while observing environmental regulations and expectations set by their charterers and trading partners. At the same time, 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 options and alternative strategies available to shipowners, as well as initiatives developed by fuel producers and charterers.
