IMO continues to work on mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping, this time with a train-the-trainer course on energy-efficient ship operation, realised in Mumbai, on 28 February – 3 March.
The course trained maritime educators and officials to pass on expertise on the complex technical and regulatory aspects designed to make shipping greener.
Thirty participants from Indian, Bangladeshi, Maldivian and Sri Lankan maritime training institutes, maritime administrations and classification societies took part. The training included group exercises, in which the participants developed and delivered presentations on barriers to ship energy efficiency.
The event was run under IMO’s GloMEEP project and hosted by the Directorate General Of Shipping, Indian Register of Shipping and the Indian National Shipowners’ Association. IMO was represented by Astrid Dispert, Minglee Hoe and a team of consultants.
