Chevron Marine Lubricants to hold seminar at SHIPPINGInsight

(NORFOLK, Va.) — The organizers of SHIPPINGInsight have announced that Chevron Marine Lubricants will host a special seminar prior to the 2017 Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition.
The seminar will take place 5 to 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 9, at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa in Stamford, Conn. Chevron speakers will be Mike Sarisky, account and technical manager for the Americas, and Monique Vermeire, fuels technologist. They will address pressing questions regarding the impact of Emission Control Area (ECA) legislation on marine propulsion systems, fuels and lubricants.
“We are focusing on being future-ready by addressing concerns around upcoming legislation and reassuring our customers and partners that we have the lubrication solutions, technological expertise and services to meet the challenges that lie ahead,” said Ayten Yavuz, regional manager, marine, for Northwest Europe and Americas.
Carleen Lyden Walker, SHIPPINGInsight co-director, said, “Lubricants will be a major issue as shipowners ponder their options for low-sulfur diesel and alternative fuels to meet the growing ECA emission zones, and we encourage the shipping community to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about this critical subject.”
The sixth SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition will be held at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa, Oct. 10-12. It will include 2.5 days of speeches from top shipping company executives, panel presentations from industry experts and open-discussion roundtables, as well as more than 19 hours of scheduled networking events.
SHIPPINGInsight Co-Director Frank Soccoli reports that sponsorships and exhibit booth space are nearly sold out for this year’s event, but there are still a limited number of opportunities. For details, contact him at, (434) 295-6642.
