This presentation was delivered to a global audience of shipowners, ship managers, ship builders, shipyards, ports, equipment manufacturers and technology companies on 8th of December as part of the 2 day event.

2020 is the year that brought a lot of changes to the maritime industry. First of all it is the year when the IMO 2020 regulations came into effect. Secondly, it is the year of the pandemic – something that have definitely changed the maritime industry and the way the business is conducted. However, one thing has not changed in the maritime industry – the need to work together. Together to innovate, to comply, to adapt and to overcome the challenges. For this reason, the IGGS Group decided to provide a global online event, uniting the whole industry for two days. Maritime experts from all parts of the world joined this truly unprecedented online gathering to network and to evaluate the best solutions that are available. The leaders of the industry shared their insights and best practices and technology companies offered their latest products and services.

Conidia, who supply the industry leading FUELSTAT® test kits for microbiological growth in marine fuels, discussed how IMO 2020 and COVID-19 make a ‘perfect storm’ for marine operators. Combined they create an unprecedented risk of microbial contamination in the marine industry where many operators are now turning to FUELSTAT® test kits as part of the solution. We have included the full recording of this 17 minute presentation for you to view.
