Warship 2019: Multi-Role Vessels


Declining fleet numbers in many navies combined with rapidly evolving technologies is demanding more flexible vessels that can be easily re-roled or upgraded through life.

Common designs along with multi-role or modular technologies can reduce the number of hull types in service, thus affording higher levels of commonality between ship classes and the potential for reduced build and support costs. Flexibility and Adaptability requires ship designs to incorporate appropriate margins but these must be intelligently specified to ensure they are available when required and they do not compromise the core vessel capabilities.

 Ship Design & Operation for Environmental Sustainability 2010


The environment must be considered in every aspect of the design and operation of all shipping, from construction all the way through to decommissioning. The earlier these issues are addressed in the design stage, the more cost effective and successful they are likely to be at reducing the environmental impact of shipping industry. However, much can also be undertaken on existing vessels to reduce the impact of the remainder of their lives. The IMO is systematically introducing regulations on a number of topics to reduce the impact of the marine industry on both the sea and atmosphere, including exhaust emissions, anti-fouling, and ballast water amongst others.

The International Conference on Ice Class Vessels 2015


The Polar Regions continue to experience heavier traffic in marine shipping and exploration. The more convenient access to the arctic as a result of changing ice levels, and the increased competition for natural resources by different states, has focused the need for more unified and detailed regulation on the operation, safety and design of all vessels that operate in the polar environment.
