The Chairman of Danish Shipping, Claus V Hemmingsen, CEO of Maersk Energy Division and Vice CEO of AP Møller – Mærsk, is one of the high-level speakers and panelists participating in the Opening Oceans Conference, taking place at Lokomotivværkstedet during the Danish Maritime Fair.
Key figures from Maersk Group, Statoil and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development have signed up to discuss future ocean business opportunities, demands and strategies at Opening Oceans Conference 2018.
“It’s a line-up that offers diverse perspectives and unique insights into how major industrial players will aim to adapt models and build foundations for a new age of ocean business”, says Nor-Shipping’s Sofia Furstenberg, Strategic Lead OOC.
“OECD, led by the work of Claire, has identified that ocean value creation will double by 2030, so the opportunities for forward-thinking companies are immense”, she states.
“Statoil and Maersk are leading the way in adapting strategies to unlock sustainable success in this new arena, with the former transitioning to increased renewable energy activity, while the latter addresses one of the main themes of OOC this year, data value”.
“Through presentations, panel discussions and collaborative working spaces, high level delegates from a range of sectors – maritime, ocean, the energy sector, regulatory bodies, and more – will be able to really identify how they can address business potential and work together to compliment one another’s existing expertise and experience, and future ambitions. It’s such an exciting, important area to be focusing on and we know that all our attendees, from shipowners to technologists, will gain some unique and valuable perspectives”, Furstenberg says.
The Opening Oceans Conference, taking place in Lokomotivværkstedet – the venue for the Danish Maritime Fair – on May 2 and 3, is Nor-Shipping’s first conference outside its Norway.
The Danish Maritime Fair is a part of the Danish Maritime Days.
