Shipbuilding, Machinery & Marine Technology- International trade fair with conference from 12 to 14 November 2009 || Mumbai

"I am confident that SMM India 2009 Exhibition & Conference will contribute new ideas and solutions for growth of the maritime sector," said G.K. Vasan, Minister of Shipping of the Indian Government, in the run-up to SMM India, which is to be held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai from 12 to 14 November 2009.

The organisers are Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH (HMC) and the two partners and co-organisers INTER ADS Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd., the biggest Indian trade fair organiser, and E. J. Krause & Associates, Inc., a globally operating US event specialist. Following SMM Istanbul, this is the second overseas event of SMM, the world's leading trade fair for the international ship building industry. It features more than 100 exhibitors from all parts of the world, including 50% Indian shipyards and marine equipment suppliers, presenting the latest technologies and products for shipbuilding and the maritime equipment industry.

The accompanying conference takes a forward looking approach, with the slogan "Maritime India – The Path Ahead". The Indian Minister of Shipping expects lively exchange of ideas and experience there by the representatives from government organisations and company management, investors, bankers, project managers and project developers. Good business prospects are expected specifically for the international maritime equipment supply business, according to Hauke Schlegel, Executive Director of the Shipbuilding and Offshore Supply Section of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). He believes that "the international ship building and offshore industry has a new base at SMM India to develop the enormous potential of the Indian maritime market. India is following a clear course for development of the maritime sector to international standards. And the fastest way for Indian industry to move ahead is by means of international partnerships." Hauke Schlegel will speak as Guest of Honour on the first day of the conference.

The conference session on "India's Shipbuilding – Opportunities, Challenges & Imperatives" will be addressed by Matthew Cuerdon, Vice President Business Development of AVEVA NET Solutions Ltd. from the United Kingdom, taking up the question of partnerships and discussing the opportunities arising from collaboration with shared use of a digital information hub. International equipment suppliers present their products and services in concentrated form at the session on "Maritime Technology & Equipment". For example Georg E. Scheuing from the German engine builder MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH presents advanced propulsion systems for offshore supply vessels. Capt. Tarun K. Mathur of Transas Marine Pacific, Singapore, discusses the reliability of navigation systems and implementation of this technology on ships.

Dr. A.A. Vasilyev of the Russian Shipbuilding & Shiprepair Technology Centre presents a concept for modernisation of shipyards, specifically focusing on modular installations and naval vessels. The capabilities of a floating infrastructure for improvement of container handling in Indian ports are presented by Dr. Ulrich Malchow, Managing Director Port Feeder Barge from Germany. New technologies for underwater repair are presented by Rene Huybregts from Hydrex NV, a Belgian company. The conference includes a session dedicated to "Marine Finance", with keynote speaker Tobias König, Managing Partner of the Hamburg based issuing house König & Cie. The impact of the international financial and economic crisis on ship financing is discussed by Dr. Jürgen Monzel of International Transport Finance Consultant, Germany; Vishal Sharma, Managing Director and CEO of Tuscan Ventures Pvt. Ltd., India; and Raymond J. Ellis, Vice President and Manager of EXIM(Export/Import Bank), USA.

The new trade fair and conference SMM India, designed with the quality standard of the world's leading shipbuilding industry fair SMM (Hamburg/Germany) is expected by the leading experts in the Indian maritime industry to give significant stimuli to India's maritime industry. "Application of the latest and most advanced technologies will boost growth in the maritime sector in India. SMM India 2009 is exactly the right platform for that," says S. Hajara, Chairman and Managing Director of The Shipping Corporation of India Ltd.
