MIA Visit to the London Boat Show
British Marine Federation - Technical Day

ExCel Exhibition Centre, London
14 January 2009

The BMF will be hosting Technical Day at the London Boat Show on 14 January in the Premier Suite at ExCeL starting at 10.30am and running until 2pm with coffee and tea provided.  This event will showcase the latest technology and research available to the marine sector and the successful Motorsport to Marine theme will be continued to promote technology and knowledge transfer opportunities between the marine and motorsport sectors.  Motorsport Industry Association members have been invited to join BMF members at this event which will provide excellent B2B networking opportunities.

The BMF is delighted that Nigel Calder the well known expert and author in marine mechanical and electrical systems will be presenting the latest technology developments and trends in marine electrical and mechanical systems.  These will include hybrid propulsion and electronic control systems and much more, plus an update of the EU Framework 7 project on hybrid marine propulsion based on Nigel’s own experience of equipping his latest cruising yacht.  Ken Wittamore of Triskel Marine will explain more about the project and opportunities for companies to participate. 

Speakers from the motorsport sector will include Ricardo, the world leading design, development and research company in internal combustion engines and systems.  Ricardo will describe how the latest high performance automotive diesel engines are being applied to marine applications for improved efficiency, weight reduction and refinement and the potential to further exploit automotive engine developments in marine applications.  Wirth Research is an innovative engineering group specialising in research, development, design and manufacture for the motorsport and other high technology sectors.  They will present their extensive capabilities in virtual engineering technology that enables simulated testing and vehicle development without the expense of building or testing prototypes, and how this and the ability to design and manufacture new products quickly could be applied in the marine industry.
