GSI attends Lloyd’s Register Partner Innovation Day
Earlier this week, GSI’s Executive Chairman, Peter Young and I attended the Lloyd’s Register Partner Innovation Day at their Fenchurch office in London which hosted a number of international attendees. This was a great opportunity to engage with one of our most valued partners. We demonstrated how innovations in the satellite analytics domain are enabling the next generation of inspection and assurance solutions in the oil & gas, energy, food and beverage, shipping and marine industries.
We had the opportunity to meet with many of the senior team at Lloyd’s Register including the Chairman, Thomas Thune Andersen; Chief Technology Officer, Nial McCollam; MD of Business Assurance and Inspection services, Paul Butcher; Innovation & Technology Director, David Butler; Director Commercial Engagement, Simon Reeve; and Group Energy director, David Clark.
Topics of discussion included the use of green energy to tackle climate change and the implementation of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. GSI presented a roadmap designed to provide intelligence to support serious global challenges such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
Solutions were demonstrated showing the application of innovation to meet new industrial challenges, transform operational risk management and visual inspections. There was great appetite for the latest generation of products helping customers to monitor their supply chains, revealing progress against United Nations SDG’s.
Conversations throughout the day touched on the importance of sustainable supply chains and the value that remote sensing derived intelligence provides to organisations. Applications covered; assuring ethical food and energy supply chains, stopping deforestation, carbon sequestration, driving decarbonisation in the shipping industry with the aim of halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to fossil fuel / biofuel transformation and maximising renewable energy efficiency.
