IMO Workshop to Promote Energy Efficiency Being Held in Durban

An IMO workshop is raising awareness of the Organization’s regulatory regime dealing with improving energy efficiency and the control of GHG emissions from ships.

Participants from South African governmental departments and other related bodies are in attendance at the three-day “MARPOL Annex VI and Technology Transfer” workshop, taking place in Durban, South Africa (23-25 August).

The event is the latest in a series of workshops organized under IMO’s GloMEEP project, which is supporting uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping in developing countries. South Africa is one of the 10 GloMEEP lead pilot countries.

A total of 25 participants from the Department of Transport, Department of Energy, Department of Environmental Affairs, South Africa Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA), the Transnet National Port Authority and others are taking part in the event.
