Train-the-trainer course on energy-efficient ship operation was held in India last week
IMO’s work to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping was performed in Mumbai, India last week with a train-the-trainer course on energy-efficient ship operation. The course (28 February – 3 March) was training 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 were taking part. The training included group exercises in which the participants develop and deliver 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.
