Maritime-Port Technology and Development

    Maritime-Port Technology and Development contains the latest research results and innovations as presented at the 2014 International Maritime and Port Technology and Development Conference (Trondheim, Norway, 27- 29 October 2014). The volume is divided into a wide range of topics:

    • Efficient and environmentally friendly energy use in ships and ports
    • Demanding and safe maritime operations and intervention
    • Maritime transport and operations in the Arctic
    • Remotely controlled and monitored shipping, traffic surveillance and control
    • Port-ship interface optimization
    • Effective port infrastructure
    • LNG and other novel fuels: Distribution and use
    • Optimization in maritime logistics, fleet and vessel design

    Maritime-Port Technology and Development contributes to efficiency and reliability of seaborne transport and operations, and will be useful to academics and engineers involved in marine technology-related research and the marine industry.
