Summer SchoolCLEAN TECH AT SEAWHY AND HOW TO CHANGE MARITIMETRANSPORTATION?AUGUST 5-17, 2013MAN PrimeServ Academy (Frederikshavn)Martec (Frederikshavn)Aalborg University (Aalborg)
PURPOSEThe course will both focus on issues where shipping is environmentally superior to other modesof transportation and issues where shipping is lacking behind.The course main objective is to engage participants in the on-going activities, challenges andopportunities arising from the evolution towards a more environmentally friendly maritimesector. To achieve this, the course is structured under the Problem Based Learning modeldeveloped at Aalborg University to address real-life problems in a hands-on way. The courseprovides theoretical lectures, case-study lectures, site visits and group projects during the twoweeks summer course. In addition, the course will also comprise several social activities inorder to facilitate networking and a relaxed environment. Leading scientific experts andpractitioners in the maritime sector have accepted invitations to give guest speeches. The firstdays will be organized as open days to industry participants to allow interaction andnetworking with decision makers.BACKGROUNDAfter decades of non-regulation, the maritime industry is now facing relatively toughenvironmental requirements from both regulators and the market. The International MaritimeOrganisation (IMO) has passed annexes to the MARPOL convention which together with EUand US legislation put pressure on shipping. The summer school will address the on-goingregulatory updates taking place at the IMO and European level.Fortunately, the combination of strict requirements and decades of land-based experiences inCleanTech gives huge business opportunities for those who can and will provide solutions tothe problems – some of these solution providers are Danish companies. Some ports andmunicipalities even see the upcoming legislative pressures as a lever of regional developmentand employment.WORKLOAD5 ECTS + 2.5 ECTS (Delivered after handing in an article manuscript)TARGET AUDIENCEMSc and Engineering students enrolled in the following educations: Maritime management (ship design, engineering) Environmental policy Environmental governance Environmental managementTOPICS COVERED The need for maritime action – an NGO perspective Emission reduction through better engine technology Energy efficiency requirements Managing ballast water – a new business opportunity Hybrid propulsion technologies in the shipping industry An introduction to Environmental Management Systems – a focus on harbours A maritime service perspective; Retrofitting vessels for CleanTech How to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from maritime transport- a political perspective Site visits & Social activities And more…2
