Shipbuilding in the 21st Century. Being Competitive in the Asia-Pacific Region

FEFU, Plenary Session and Business Programme Hall (Blue Hall)
Developing shipbuilding, a complex, hi-tech sector, is of crucial significance: this is the basis for achieving defence and socioeconomic objectives; it means demand for qualified personnel and research results; it means more orders for Russia’s metallurgy, engineering and other industrial sectors, and a powerful resource for developing entire regions of Russia. Thus it is important to intensify scientific and technological progress and to introduce innovations into shipbuilding. Today, Asia Pacific is a highly competitive region where potential customers both choose the best on offer and have become manufacturers themselves.

Will Russia succeed in creating a special hi-tech shipbuilding segment? Will the Russian shipbuilding sector manage to attract finance, new technologies and cutting-edge global practices?

Russian Speed Boats: Fulfilling Unique Potential

FEFU, Morinsist-Agat Hall (Building А, Level 5)
JSC Concern Morinformsystem-Agat JSC

The enormous potential of domestic high-speed shipbuilding, so rich in unique competencies, has thus far gone unrealized. The majority of the country's high-speed passenger fleet (approximately 90 percent) exhibits a high degree of obsolescence and physical deterioration. Modern high-speed shipbuilding needs to rethink its role in the development of the industry as whole, one of systemic importance and capable of giving new impetus to the development of maritime conveyance on regional and international freight and passenger routes.

Do the unique competencies in high-speed shipbuilding have what it takes to drive the development of maritime transport infrastructure? Is the shipbuilding industry ready to mass produce high-speed vessels for domestic and foreign markets? What tools of public-private partnership are needed to further develop high-speed shipbuilding?

Digital Navigation, Vessel Tracking – The Best Ideas from Industry 4

FEFU, Conference Hall No. 1 (Middle Hall)
We live in a world where technologies appear and become part of our lives, often outrunning regulation systems. More and more ship owners are introducing advanced technologies in navigation, management and automation. Keeping track of vessels and the state of cargoes being shipped has also always been a major problem in the sphere of marine transport. Modern
technologies are already capable of providing solutions to reduce substantially the indeterminacy in this question and provide stakeholders with the required information online.

How far behind the technologies used is today’s legal framework? Can we speak about formation of our own regulation system for applying the latest technologies in marine navigation? What are the advantages of using new technologies for tracking vessels and how much do they cost?

Localization and Cooperation in Production in the EAEU

FEFU, Plenary Session and Business Programme Hall (Blue Hall)
Creating and developing a single economic space within the Eurasian Economic Union is intended to establish production chains in many important industrial sectors. Goals associated with improving the level of production localization play one of the key roles in industrial cooperation. Cooperation between EAEU countries in this area could improve the competitive edge of Russia’s shipbuilding industry while simultaneously promoting Russia’s enterprises to upper positions in regional added value chains.

What opportunities do EAEU member states have for specializing in shipbuilding? What practical tools are there encouraging companies to cooperate? Do EAEU enterprises have the requisite in personnel, technologies and equipment potential?

Oceaneering

FEFU, Conference Hall No. 3 (Maritime Hall)
Hardly anyone doubts the topicality of exploring seas and oceans. There has been major progress in developing technological means for human exploration and exploitation of the ocean. This progress was made possible by new methods and technologies, by extensive cooperation in running innovative projects, research, and design and development work. Today, the scale of oceanological research is expanding and there is a huge range of applied, manufacturing, and military tasks requiring deep-water equipment. A comprehensive resolution to the problem of exploring the World Ocean is in the interests of all countries’ economic development and security.

Is Russia today capable of independent comprehensive exploration of the World Ocean? How do we attract private investors into developing the research segment? What Russian technologies in the area have commercial potential?

Russian Shipbuilding Development Priorities

FEFU, Conference Hall No. 1 (Middle Hall)
Today’s economic situation in the country is giving domestic shipbuilding a chance to rethink the experience it has accumulated and use it to give a new impetus to development of marine transport and make it more competitive. The greater support being provided to domestic shipbuilding, including in the Far East, will promote development of ship building and repairs, as well as sea and short activities in general. Questions relating to navigation under the Russian flag and Russian registers are extremely relevant today and require well-thought-out economic and legislative solutions. In addition, the pattern of liaisons between the authorities and business, the conditions for support for domestic shipbuilding, including foreign experience, need reviewing.

What measures are required for independent ship-owners to come under the Russian flag? What changes in the way Russian registers work could do a lot to make Russian shipping more competitive? Why are financing, support and a competent pricing policy such important issues for domestic shipbuilding and repairs?

WATER TRANSPORT IN THE ERA OF DIGITALIZATION AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES

FEFU, Plenary Session and Business Programme Hall (Blue Hall)
Plenary session

Reviving hi-tech manufacturing, including shipbuilding, in Russia’s Far East is both an objective for regional development and a way for Russia to improve its overall competitive edge. Practical application of new technologies in shipbuilding will determine forward-looking steps toward introducing digitalization in areas from manufacturing to navigation. The agenda features issues of localising equipment manufacturing and expanding cooperation.
