NEVA 2011: Cooperation and Integration to the Fore

By MarEx 2012-12-18 14:03:00

Conference delegates, exhibitors and a host of executives from the global maritime industries are preparing to converge on St. Petersburg for NEVA 2011, which is being held in the Russian city from 20-23 September.

NEVA is a global cluster representing all commercial maritime activity and the combined exhibition and conference will again powerfully focus minds and accelerate development and integration.

The exhibition programme includes important sessions and meetings outside the central conference agendas headed by the German-Russian Equipment Forum, the Round Table for Shipbuilding Contracts and the Russian EU Shipyards Second Round Table.

Four Breakdown/Focus sessions of the central programme on 22 September will analyse and develop the theme that technology and engineering are driving forces in setting new standards in efficiency, safety and environmental performance.

NEVA 2012 is being held at a crucial time for Russia and the global maritime industries as Russia seeks United Nations’ agreement to extend its Arctic territory by one million square kilometres where the recently unveiled alliance between Exxon and Rosneft is looking to extract the Russian share of an estimated 90 billion barrels of oil. 

Against this backdrop, an International Maritime Organization paper looking closely at the IMO’s Polar Code will be a central Conference topic.

NEVA 2011 will also showcase the challenging work of Russian shipbuilders who are at the forefront of building high-tech vessels for Arctic exploration, most notably Admiralty Shipyards, which is collaborating with Aker Arctic Finland.

An area of particular focus is the Northern Sea Route, a link for bulk cargo between Scandinavia and China, where the requirement for a new fleet of Russian ice-breakers is paramount.

Russian yards are building shuttle tankers for domestic operators and ice-breaking tugs for Wijsmuller and the Russian-owned company Nordic Yards Wismar Germany is leading the way with highly specialised ice class tanker construction.

New initiatives are also underway for Russian yards to work with Far East shipbuilders in a number of projects.

In addition, the Russian Register is cooperating closely with the French classification society Bureau Veritas in the further development of rules covering liquefied natural gas carriers and floating production storage and offloading units.
