OCEANOLOGY INTERNATIONAL 2018
TECHNOLOGY - Smart machines are the way forward for ocean transport and cleaning duties. Our volunteers were out and about looking for potential suppliers and research partners for 2019, as SeaVax and AmphiMax proof of concept models are put through their paces in Sussex, England. Peter Holm (centre) represented Sea Machines Robotics at this splendid event. Sea Machines is a US company that develops and sell navigation and vessel command and control equipment. They have a branch in England.
What is Oceanology International?
CONSERVATION CONSULTANT - The Cleaner Ocean Foundation is represented by Nelson Kay on the 14th of March 2018. He was at this event to explain how SeaVax works and the potential future applications toward ocean regeneration and reduced marine litter. A SeaVax ocean cleanup programme may be implemented at vastly reduced cost using portable shipyards to mass produce and service regeneration vessels in countries that do not have budget boat yards on the scale that would be required. To now, large portable dockyards have been unavailable. As part of the SeaVax project an AmphiMax will be prototyped. Nelson is a hands on welder fabricator and CAD jockey, useful skills for boat and amphibious vehicle building.
Increasing amounts of data acquired from within the ocean space is leading to growth in interoperable systems for data acquisition, transfer, storage and analysis. Technologies identified as 'most important in 2 year's time' by OI2016 visitors:
EXCELLENT - The London ExCel is the perfect venue for this nautical technology get together. This is the forty-ninth year of the event that brings together oceanic thought leaders, suppliers and buyers from across the globe.
B2B MATCHMAKING BROKERAGE 14TH MARCH 2018 - HOW IT WORKS:
1. Registration | 1st November 2017 to 12th March 2018

4. Build connections at the event | 12th March
A few days prior to the event you will receive an email with your meetings schedule showing who you will meet, what time, and the table number where the meeting will take place. You can always check this online or via the app.
B2B AGENDA - TIME ZONE GMT
For further information about this brokerage event please contact Tim Benzie or one of the co-organisers listed below. We found Tim's help with these B2B meetings invaluable. Thanks Tim. We had five meetings booked and these led on to another three meetings on exhibitors stands to discuss possible supplier arrangement and potential partnerships. This did not include visiting dozens of other stands for information gathering and just to see what is new.
The conference and brokerage event will take place at:
CATCH THE NEXT WAVE (CTNW)
is a prestigious annual conference that takes a longer term view of the capabilities that are shaping our future ability to explore, understand, exploit and protect the oceans. Historically the event pairs leading global experts to share latest technological solutions being developed to tackle related challenges accross different sectors and highlight potential opportunities for the ocean community to learn from other sectors. CTNW’s aim is to stimulate creative thinking and leave the audience buzzing with new ideas that might lead to new research and business opportunities.

2018 EXHIBITOR LIST SUBJECT A - Z
ROYAL VICTORIA DOCKS
The building of London’s Royal Docks introduced a new world of commerce to the expanding capital. The dock is dominated by the ExCeL Exhibition Centre, constructed on the north quayside and opened in November 2000, and by the adjacent high level Royal Victoria Dock Bridge. The waterside location of ExCel is used to its advantage when it hosts the annual London Boat Show, with visiting vessels moored alongside the exhibition centre.
Dock is the largest of three docks in the Royal Docks of east London,
now part of the redeveloped Docklands. The dock area has
experienced major redevelopment under the London Docklands
Development Corporation. The dock itself still exists and is
accessible to ships, although its western entrance has been
filled in and it is now used chiefly for watersports. Its
transport links have been greatly improved with new roads and
Docklands Light Railway lines running along both its north and
The docks drew produce and people from all over the world; they survived the bombings of
World War II but the final challenge was the creation of containerised cargo.

YESTERYEAR - Let us not forget our roots. It is important to recognise the development of London as a port of international trade and remember that this was on the backs of the strong men who manhandled much of the produce that was landed before the advent of fork-lift trucks and other modern handling equipment, though cranes were well established quite early on.
