The exhibition shows five contemporary maritime innovations in shipping and shipbuilding. The ‘Brainwaves’ that are required to turn a brilliant idea into a brilliant product are exposed. The exhibition shows five current Dutch maritime innovations and explains the successes and issues of the development process.
One of these five maritime innovations is the intelligent Docklocking System® of Mampaey Offshore Industries. The automatic mooring system intelligent Docklocking System® is a current development that enables faster & safer mooring procedures.
All innovations come up against challenges somewhere in the development process. The innovations relate to funding, timing or for instance legislation. A lot of perseverance, creativity and entrepreneurship is needed if an innovation is ultimately to be marketed successfully.
