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.”
