Georgia is the latest country to receive IMO support to promote energy-efficient shipping
Georgia is the latest country to receive IMO support to promote energy-efficient shipping – with a workshop taking place in Batumi (31 May – 1 June). Run under IMO's GloMEEP project, the workshop is training 23 maritime educators from across the country to introduce the topic of energy-efficient ship operation into their teaching curriculums.
The focus is on delivering the IMO Model Course 4.05 to seafarers, which consists of lectures, interactive exercises and videos to enhance the learning experience. Crews trained in Georgia will then have the necessary knowledge to contribute to reducing fuel consumption on ships and cutting associated greenhouse gas emissions.
IMO says the training, hosted by the Maritime Transport Agency of Georgia, is the latest in a series of IMO national workshops of this kind – the previous one having taken place in Panama in April 2017.
