Needless, to say our last event held at the same location, by the same organizers, was very well received and completely sold out, fairly early on. So if you are an equipment or service supplier, now is the time to book exhibition space. Same can be said for sponsorship opportunities... and attendees, considerable early bird savings are available when you register before May 1st, 2014.

Marine Engineering – The New Wave is looking for you: the sparkle in your company’s portfolio, the passionate debater, the champion of maritime matters, the creator of ships, the whiz of solutions, the grand visionary, the energy innovators… Yes, The New Wave wants you all !

The New Wave is a technical conference and exhibition occurring June 2014, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Western Canada is in the initial stages of a massive surge of activity and renewal in the marine industry. From shipbuilding, design, repairs, to training and emerging renewable energy market, things are happening in the Pacific Northwest, and we would like to you to be involved, at the “ground floor”.

The conference is hosted by the experienced, not for profit, Vancouver Island Branch of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering; a passionate group, committed to professional development. They would like you to come, and share your marine passion, as presenter or speaker, at the conference. Mr. Malcolm Barker, Vice President and General Manager of Seaspan’s Victoria Shipyard, will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The Vancouver Island Branch has held numerous conferences over the last 15 years, and is excited to have a solid foundation ready for another successful conference, featuring technical presentations, a marine exhibition, and ample opportunity for networking.

We would like you to present your latest development, ideas, and vision with peers. Please submit your expression of interest to participate as a speaker / presenter, by February 26th, 2014, by email to papers@thenewwave.ca.

The official website can be found at www.thenewwave.ca, specific details on how to participate as a presenter may be found here, http://www.thenewwave.ca/?page_id=114.

The Vancouver Island Branch of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering is hosting “Marine Engineering: The New Wave“, a technical conference and exhibition for Marine Professionals. The conference will take place June 12 and 13, 2014 at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa. The two-day event will feature guest speakers, relevant technical presentations, a trade exhibition, an evening social event and various networking opportunities.

The conference aims to present cutting-edge developments in the marine, industry, from ship design, repair, construction and operations, to oceanography and marine renewable energy. The schedule each day will be made up of four sessions, two of which will focus on Marine Operations. The other two sessions will explore Marine Design and Ocean Technology.

There is a diverse range of topics that will be presented in the Marine Operations Sessions. Presenters from BC Ferries will discuss the process for the adoption of Liquefied Natural Gas technology into the BC Ferries fleet including the technical requirements, business case and the regulatory issues. The Defence Research and Development Centre [DRDC] Atlantic will give a presentation on the simulation naval platform dynamics and the affect on human and equipment safety as it relates to performing a mission. The results of these simulations are applicable to any platform at sea not just naval platforms.

An analysis carried out by the Maritime State University of Vladivostok will be presented regarding the seaworthiness of ships in freezing seas. Generating energy from the oceans and rivers has become a significant area of research and innovation. Marine Renewables Canada will focus on marine renewable energy on the West Coast of Canada, specifically, what project opportunities are emerging and how the supply chain can contribute and benefit.

Investigations using high fidelity computer simulations are being used to predict the performance of wave energy conversion technology will be presented by the West Coast Wave Initiative based at the University of Victoria. The Oregon Wave Energy Trust will highlight the developments of the wave energy sector in Oregon and the United States. Robotically controlled underwater devices are increasingly used in marine industries. Separate presentations will be given on underwater robotic logging and seafloor robotic mining.

Also from DRDC is a presentation on the development of a docking strategy for recovering an ROV with a submarine through virtual prototyping. Another presentation will examine how adaptive learning techniques can be used to develop vessel and equipment specific
training for fleets.

A few examples from the Marine Design Sessions are as follows: Speakers from the University of Victoria’s Department of Mechanical Engineering will give a presentation concerning the development of an integrated design and analysis platform for hybrid-electric ship propulsion taking into account the dynamics between powerplant, drivetrain and ship hydrodynamics. The presentation will detail UVic’s Green Ship and Hybrid Power Systems research.

Bart Stockdill, representing Robert Allan Ltd.,will discuss how computational fluid dynamics can be used as an effective alternative to costly and time-consuming scale model testing to evaluate the performance of tugboats and other workboats in the design process. The Corvus Energy presentation will cover advances in hybrid and full electric propulsion for passenger ferries that achieve huge fuel savings. A speaker from the National Marine Electronics Association will discuss digital electronic standards for communication between marine equipment in terms of simplifying wiring aboard ships.

The Ocean Technology Sessions will feature presentations focusing on how new technologies will help solve problems currently affecting marine industries. One such presentation from AML Oceanographic will describe how low-power LED-based ultra-violet light sources can be used to control biofouling on a Marine Engineering – The New Wave The West Coast’s Newest wide range of oceanographic equipment.

It is essential for the future of humans that the oceans continue to be a significant source of food. Vancouver Island University will give a presentation on the Blue Revolution, which is adapting advanced engineering to create sustainable shellfish aquaculture systems.

A special area at the conference will be set aside for a poster display of projects by students at post-secondary marine engineering, science and technology colleges and universities.
