During the World Maritime University’s Kinney Lecture Series, Christopher J. Wiernicki, Chairman, President and CEO of ABS, underlined the fact that the evolution of marine and offshore industries into new operating models is strengthened by groundbreaking changes in technology.  

“Digital is our new norm and is here to stay. It is characterized by rapid and disruptive change driven by technology and requiring new mindsets, new skill sets, new regulatory and classification relationships and leadership roles to ensure we continue to maximize safety and minimize environmental impacts,” said Mr Wiernicki at his speech.

Furthermore, the CEO of ABS stressed the importance of the completion of the digital transformation, noting that this is only successful when it is holistic, not segmented.

In his remarks, Wiernicki also outlined key industry megatrends and impacts to the marine and offshore industries specifically. He described the new norm as an industry transformation focused on improving productivity, efficiency and optimization; embracing digitization and connectivity; recognizing shifts in talent requirements and development; leveraging data; and requiring a convergent mindset that values technical viability as well as economic feasibility and societal sustainability.
