DNV GL Superyacht Seminar: Submarines, 3D Printing and Sustainable Innovations

Three topics will be presented during the Monaco Yacht Show to superyacht captains, crew and /managers:

Underwater safety: First manned submersible ever certified for unlimited diving depth

DNV GL experts Jonathan Struwe and Dr Stephan Hinz will describe the deepest-ever sea trials. These were performed when the DNV GL-classed submersible “Limiting Factor” descended to the deepest point in the ocean to prove all systems are suitable for unlimited diving depth. The presentation will focus on the safety aspects of modern manned submersibles, which are being tested for safe operation in the most challenging environment, the deep sea, and for superyacht and cruise ship applications. Captains can decide what depths they need to go down to in order to satisfy today’s charter guests and will gain insights into submersibles’ operation and supporting systems.

Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing

Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) has real potential to revolutionize the way parts, objects and even entire vessels are designed and manufactured. The only limit to what is possible is the imagination. DNV GL expert Simon Ratcliffe will brief delegates on how this rapid emerging technology can be used to make custom designs, what the possible materials and technologies are, what it might means to have printing on-demand, and how the technology could unlock sustainable circular ecosystems.

Sailing towards sustainability

Water Revolution Foundation’s Vienna Eleuteri will explain how sustainability is mainstream today but still one of the most misunderstood social movements. What exactly does it entail for captains and yacht professionals, besides the low-hanging fruit of the elimination of single-use plastic bottles? Much more. Discover how we can identify sustainable practices applicable in our sector.

Delegates will have the chance to ask the speakers questions, over refreshments, and can leave the seminar confident that they can communicate to superyacht owners and guests as well-briefed “authorities” on submarines, on shaping and making objects, and on sustainability.
