Danfoss is looking forward to the possibility of meeting people live at Europort 2021, November 2-5th in Ahoy Rotterdam. The sustainability in the marine industry is at full speed. Not least because legislators, but also customers, are urging to sail cleaner and more efficiently. Danfoss supports the sector with its well-known sensors and by providing its standard frequency converters with new software to perform all facets of electrical energy conversion. By applying specific software the user can use the same drive as a so-called DC-DC converter to charge and discharge batteries and to convert a varying battery voltage into a stable DC voltage or vice versa. VACON® NXP Grid Converter The Danfoss VACON® NXP Grid Converter, recently awarded with the exclusive Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label, provides an alternative source of power for ships in port, which plays a key role in reducing fuel consumption, improving efficiency, and thus reaching emission targets (carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur). By sourcing electrical power from the on-shore electricity grid via a set of cables, ships no longer have to rely on their auxiliary diesel engines to generate electrical power for communications, lighting, and other onboard equipment. Application Development Centre VACON NXP DCGuard™ enables fast disconnection and full selectivity between DC grids for all VACON NXP drives The Application Development Centre in Gorinchem offers expert support and state-of-the-art test facilities for your business. Danfoss has a high power test bench for testing the panel up to one MW as well as an application test bench for testing and verification of a complete drive system. Danfoss is committed to creating a sustainable, competitive future for the marine industry. Danfoss VACON NXP DCGuard™ enables fast disconnection and full selectivity between DC grids for all VACON NXP drives. Utilising DC grids rather than AC grids enables power distribution with lower power losses. Danfoss VACON DCGuard protects the surrounding equipment, ensuring uninterrupted operation. Pressure and temperature sensors Danfoss pressure and temperature sensors enable vital monitoring and control around the ship. It sees the engine as the heart of a ship and the components are the pulse. A pulse that is vital for monitoring and controlling pressure and temperature around the ship – all to ensure a smooth operation. Danfoss offers a wide range of innovative and reliable components, which make the equipment, run smarter, faster, and more efficiently. The new products include a DST P40M titanium pressure transmitter for seawater as well as the new DST P30M Smart sensor with digital possibilities.
Women and male allies from across rail, aviation international, transport, and maritime have joined forces to learn from each other and drive progress on diversity and inclusion. Following their first summit during London International Shipping Week (15th September), the industries have agreed to regular dialogue and yearly meetings on gender equality focusing on progression and retention, careers, mental health, and ethnicity and race. Led by Maritime UK, this marks the UK’s first cross-sector dialogue on gender equality in transport, recognising the obstacles and opportunities in common between industries. This follows Maritime UK’s efforts on diversity during London International Shipping Week (13-17th September), which has also established an annual “Pride in Maritime” day, starting on 28th February next year. The day will coincide with LGBT+ History Month and celebrate the sector’s LGBT+ community and challenge traditional stereotypes about the industry. Digitalisation and automation Sarah Kenny, Chair of Maritime UK, said: “As one of the most global of industries, we must continue our progress on diversity to reflect the world we serve.” “And on our path towards net-zero, digitalisation and automation, our sector needs skills from every background and every walk of life.” “This is why our diversity program is so crucial, making the industry a home for everybody, and smashing stereotypes, so all can see the opportunities that could await them in maritime.” Green technology Robert Courts, Maritime Minister said: “Diversity is key to the success of any industry and as we move towards a new era of autonomous transport and green technology, innovative and fresh ways of thinking are more important than ever.” “Building on the vision set out in our Maritime 2050 strategy, its right that the maritime sector, one of Britain’s oldest and most well-loved industries, is leading the charge on a new chapter of inclusion and diversity in transport.” Policies to support LGBT+ employees Maritime UK’s diversity program during LISW saw diversity and inclusion summits held on each day Maritime UK’s diversity program during London International Shipping Week (LISW) saw diversity and inclusion summits held on each day. Kicking off with a hybrid event on “How to make maritime more welcoming to LGBT+”, leaders from the International Transport Workers' Federation, Shipowners' Club, and Honourable Company of Master Mariners, were among those who joined the Maritime UK’s Pride in Maritime Network on board HQS Wellington, a WWII Merchant Navy vessel moored on the Thames. They agreed to hold the inaugural “Pride in Maritime” day and discussed new policies and toolkits to support LGBT+ employees. Supporting ethnic minorities This was followed by a roundtable on Tuesday, focusing on how organisations in a maritime can “call out, call in and call on” in support of ethnic minorities in the industry. Nus Ghani MP, the former maritime minister, introduced the event for women held the next day, which marked the first combined gathering of the leaders of Women in Rail, Women in Aviation, Women in Transport, and Women in Maritime, where all agreed to maintain regular dialogues and hold yearly summits. People as assets All agreed leaders across the industry must make themselves accountable for diversity Thursday saw Mark O’Neil, the CEO of Columbia Ship management, calling for people to be treated as the industry’s prime asset during Maritime UK’s mental health and wellbeing event, with culture changes needed across the industry to safeguard workers both onshore and offshore. And Friday’s session brought together the week’s discussions, with leaders across the sector including Richard Clayton, Chief Correspondent at Lloyd’s List, and Susan Thomson, Head of Operations at BP Oil International, reflecting on the themes of the week. All agreed leaders across the industry must make themselves accountable for diversity, and that while considerable progress has been made, there is plenty more to be done. Making a difference Chrissie Clarke, Head of Diversity and Operations at Maritime UK, said: “Eighteen months on from the beginning of the Diversity in Maritime program, the industry can be proud of the progress that has since been made and we are grateful to the continued support from the Department of Transport and our sponsors.” “But as we heard during London International Shipping Week, there is much more that needs doing.” “By coming together, more often, through conversations and learning from our shared experiences even from different industries, we can break down barriers and make a difference to maritime.”
