Since 1976, the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE) has used Mari Tech as an invaluable tool in providing a high quality professional development experience for marine professionals involved in Naval, Governmental and Commercial shipping and shipbuilding operations and their service suppliers to learn and explore new industry concepts, or hone established ones.
Mari Tech 2018‘s theme is “Honing the Leading Edge“
Exploring emerging technology with an emphasis on design convergence and operator experience. LNG fuel, hybrid propulsion and bilge water management are sectors which have begun to mature; we look forward to sharing real world examples of this tech in action.
Hone: to make more acute, intense, or effective
Emerging Technologies are becoming mature, with operators learning from varied experience. Manufacturers and regulators are receiving feedback from end-users. It is the effect operational experience is having on emerging technology that we wish to explore.
