Join us and participate in Marine Industry Forum between 12 and 13 October in Katowice


The third edition of Marine Industry Forum will take place between 12 and 13 October 2018 at the International Congress Centre in Katowice. Katowice is the co-host of the Forum, together with the organizer Murator EXPO, and in close cooperation with the Polish Chamber of Marine Industry and Water Sports POLBOAT. The conference will be held during the 3rd Silesian Water Sports and Recreation Fair WIND and WATER.

The leitmotif of the technological forum are autonomous vessels - a new trend in the global market, both in the commercial and military sectors. While the subject of unmanned vessels - innovative technological systems - arouses great interest of scientists and academic researchers, it also raises scepticism among representatives of the yachting industry.

During the meetings and discussion panel, our special guests from Poland and abroad will extensively discuss this topic. Nenad Banjanin from Al Marakeb, Piotr Cywiński from Navinord and Henryk Lasota  from the Gdańsk University of Technology will present their observations and answer the main question of whether the Polish yachting industry can produce unmanned vessels.

Furthermore, the latest trends in yacht and boat power systems will be examined. Jacek Sadowski, from Marine Works, will talk about hybrid propulsion of small vessels, Federico Brunelli from XDISC will present the latest photovoltaic panels, and Artur Polak from the Institute of Drives and Electrical Machines KOMEL, will talk about innovative electric drives. In the final discussion panel of the third edition of the technological forum, our experts will also discuss new trends and the future of new power systems.
