How and with who will the ship of the future communicate?
This is the question that industry, ship owners and managers, ports, nautical service providers, university and research projects will seek to answer in this biennial EHMC seminar. The day will include live demonstrations of industry products and a visit by boat within the Port of Gothenburg that will also take us around the harbour area.
The 2017 seminar was a first in the history of our Committee, as it was held in the Moroccan port of Tanger Med. This was a consequence of the previous seminar in 2015, which was held in Marseille and where we reached out to our North African colleagues who are Harbour Masters, Port Captains and their deputies.
Tanger Med has built a leading hub port on the south shore of the Strait of Gibraltar. Beginning service in July 2007, the Tanger Med port is now operating amongst the world's leading ports.
On the occasion of the 2015 seminar in Marseille, we reached out to our North African colleagues who are Harbour Masters, Port Captains and their deputies.

Longitude, an LOC Group Company, announce on 22 January that it has been awarded the contract for the Trinity House Vessel Replacement Project Technical Specialist.
This agreement will, it is understood, see Longitude work on the requirements definition and tender specification for the Trinity House new aids to navigation service vessel. Support will then continue through the procurement and build phases of the contract, with the end goal of delivering a vessel to replace THV Patricia commissioned in 1982.
Longitude will provide a conceptual design of the vessel to Trinity House, to facilitate a thorough analysis of the vessel’s requirements, and look into incorporating new technologies, including hybrid systems. Once the design phase is complete, Longitude will work alongside the chosen shipyard to ensure that the design and build phases are successfully executed and that the end product is in accordance with Trinity House requirements.
Work is well advanced with our Congress two months away.
