Mr. Mark Hadfield, CEO, Flow Water Technologies, addressed the subject of ballast water treatment which is one of those subjects that whenever it is brought up, ship operators tend to avoid, he commented.

Mr. Kyriacos Gregoriou, Marine Surveyor, DMS Cyprus, highlighted hot debated issues concerning the 2020 Global 0.5% sulphur cap challenge.

During his presentation at the last GREEN4SEA Conference, Mr. Andreas Zontanos, Partner, Argo Navis, provided a recap of what we know and what we do not and perhaps why, with respect to the exhaust emission abatement, ahead of the 2020 sulphur cap, noting that a lot of interest from potential retrofitters reached the makers, but has not resulted in orders yet.
