An approach to reducing air emissions avoiding ‘unintended consequences’
  • Tanya Ferry - Environment Manager, Port of London Authority
  • As an inland port the PLA must balance and understand the regulation of emissions in both shipping and inland vessels, while managing to keep trade coming into and within the port.
  • In 2016-2017 the PLA completed several baseline studies to understand the scale and complexity of air emissions from marine sources on the Thames. These studies helped develop an air quality strategy to drive improvements across the river with a number of partners.
  • Launching and implementing such a strategy with such a complex and extensive stakeholder group has raised some challenges, but also created new opportunities.
  • The paper will explain the context of emissions in a busy port city, the issues in establishing an appropriate baseline and the approaches now adopted by the PLA to improve air quality and disseminate the information to various audiences.

PORT OPERATION AND INNOVATION
The role of data governance in port management and security
  • Mike Osborne - Managing Director, OceanWise
  • Ports rely on an increasing volume of complex information that is becoming harder to maintain and manage, despite recent initiatives which attempt to address this challenge
  • The role of a port is also increasing in scope and complexity, including at the frontline of border control and security, at the same time as budgets are reducing
  • Implementing a system of data governance as part of an overarching business management framework and applying this to real world issues, such as port security, can bring multiple benefits; this paper explains where to start.

Open floor debate: Is your port ready for autonomous ships?

The first autonomous ship will begin regional operations in 2018 and become fully autonomous by 2021. Autonomous ships will be both a disruptor as well as an opportunity for commercial advantage. While autonomy means different things to different organizations, ports will need specific capabilities to receive autonomous ships – what are your views?
