Babcock is pleased to announce that it will be attending and exhibiting at the Mari-Tech 2019 Conference and Exhibition taking place in Ottawa from April 23 to April 25.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Full Speed Ahead: Firing on all Cylinders’. This conference brings together leaders in the marine industry from around the world, enabling discussion and enhancing collaboration. Keynote and technical presentations will be delivered by experts in the public and private sector, and will cover important topics in the marine industry. This year, Mari-Tech will also include panels on innovation, in-service support, and education, training and succession planning.
Babcock engineers will be presenting two papers at the conference, including “A proposed framework for developing an Energy Efficient Design Index (EEDI) for Warships”, and “Continuing Service – Linking Practical Life Extensions to Optimized Outcomes Today”.
Committed to supporting Canada’s marine industry
Babcock has long history of supporting Canada’s marine industry and partnering with universities to help support the next generation of engineers. As part of this commitment, we have joined with l’École de Technologie Supérieure, and will be helping showcase the school’s engineering students and their human-powered submarine team at our booth.
The student led team, known as OMER, is among the leading human powered submarine teams in the world, winning three trophies at last year’s European International Submarine Race in Gosport, UK. The unique and innovative submarine the Omer team will be showcasing was designed from scratch, and is the first submarine to have two different propulsion systems.
Helping develop complex procurement leaders
Babcock has also teamed with the Telfer School of Management and is a founding supporter of the university’s Master of Business in Complex Project Leadership. This program is designed for leaders that are responsible for delivering large scale projects and procurement programs. This is generally relevant for Canadian public sector employees, and employees of industry partners that work with the public sector. As Major marine procurement programs are complex in nature, this program has been beneficial to project and procurement leaders within Canada’s marine industry.
