COMPIT is the 16th International Conference on Computer Applications and Information Technology in the Maritime Industries. Running in Cardiff 15-17th May 2017, COMPIT’s academic programme explored the use of innovation in shipping and offshore operations.
Coltraco Ultrasonics’ CEO was invited to speak following the acceptance of a technical paper on the Ungoverned Space. “With our thanks to Mr Volker Bertram and DNV-GL our CEO spoke of the unique challenges shipping face in marine fire engineering.”
Below are two reviews written subsequently about the conference and specifically noting Coltraco’s paper.

Ship design and ship operations continue to be bolstered by new, technologically empowered approaches. Nick Danese, NDAR, presents highlights from COMPIT 2017, a conference dedicated to the latest leaps and bounds in maritime technology.
Day 2 – SENSING A CHANGE Coltraco Ultrasonics’ CEO, Carl Hunter, began day two discussing how inadequate fire regulation and onboard fire-fighting systems have become in an age of difficult to reach cargo and ill-maintained gas and water delivery lines. He particularly focussed on how onboard sensors can aid a vessel’s fire safety.
