A resident of Gdynia since birth. Connected with the shipbuilding industry for 20 years, although family traditions date back even earlier.

Then he managed the trade office and marketing at Stocznia Gdańska, committing himself to restoring presence of that company on the international shipbuilding, hull and steel structures market. After his departure from Stocznia Gdańska, he managed the contracting and purchase office at LOTOS Petrobaltic S.A., where he was responsible, among others, for the purchase of a new offshore drilling unit, contracting of seismic research, etc. Then he joined Remontowa Shipubliding S.A., where in the years 2015-2017 he worked as a member of the Board of Directors and President of the Board of Directors.

The “Maritime Technologies” panel will be devoted to the “Strategy for the Development of the Shipbuilding Industry” that is currently being developed by the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Waterways. During speeches and panel discussions we will take a look at the said strategy from various perspectives:

External perspective – from the point of view of two global companies. Getting to know their viewpoint will enable us to get a broader picture of developmental perspectives and threats for the European shipbuilding industry in the time frame of several years. What sort of challenges will we be facing when it comes to risk and project management, what will be a mutual relationship between the shipyard and other stakeholders in the framework of shipbuilding projects, in particular between design studios and suppliers of mechanism and equipment packages?

Subcontractors and contractors’ perspective – the intention is to grasp and describe basic differences between the operation of Polish and foreign shipyards and to attempt at defining strong and weak points of Polish shipyards in this perspective, which has the key meaning for competition, both as regards costs and availability of resources. When it comes to suppliers, an outlook of chances and necessary conditions for them to remain competitive on the global market through increasing their share might be an interesting issue. In other words, will they be able to become a driving force in the sector and replace shipyards in this aspect, should their position weaken, and is it possible to build a global Polish ship brand?

We will also try to assess chances and hazards arising from particular strategies for the local market, including among others:

  • draining the specialist local market,
  • limiting competences to basic activities of non-innovative or developmental character,
  • passing project risks on to shipyards with a limited influence on their mitigation,
  • planning skills and management competences of Polish shipyards,
  • financing and financial liquidity,
  • trust and work ethics,
  • developmental barriers faced by the shipbuilding industry in Poland and expected support from the state administration to overcome them,
  • can Poland offer something unique - possibilities of working out innovations.
