Marsoft at the SNAME Symposium

Arlie Sterling gave a keynote speech at the SNAME 7th International Symposium on Ship Operations, Management and Economics on 8th April. Professor Lambros Kaiktsis commented: "The Greek shipping fraternity has always demonstrated strong leadership in the face of industry challenges, and our focus on decarbonization is no exception. This was highlighted recently by the 7th International SOME Symposium, organized by the Greek Section of SNAME. Dr Arlie Sterling, President of Marsoft, gave one of the keynote speeches and introduced Marsoft’s industry-scale retrofit concept – an innovative and prescient approach to support the decarbonization of shipping - the industry can learn a lot by listening to Marsoft and following the Greek lead!"
