MTCC-Pacific 2nd National Workshop

Type of activity:

National Workshop

The National Workshop on Energy Efficient Operations of Ships, organized by MTCC-Pacific, was attended by representatives from the Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Administration, Ports Authority, Women in Maritime Association, Maritime Transport Association and in particular their ship owner/operator members.

The purpose of the workshop was to gain the Solomon Islands government, the maritime administration, ports authority, women representatives and ship owners and operators to agree on measures to improve energy efficiency of shipping in the Solomon Islands and provide them with technical tools to progress toward energy efficient operations of ships.

The workshop was held in two parts:

  • The first part consisted of discussions on the initial Drivers-Needs-Barriers-Actions (D-N-B-A) Matrix to identify what is important to local ship owners; then a comprehensive coverage on of shore to ship interactions was presented.
  • The second part consisted of technical matters relating to Ship Energy Efficiency Operations (SEEO); climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and Shore to Ship Energy Management measures.

The national workshop participants then agreed to implement relevant actions to progress towards Green Maritime Industry (ships, shipyards and ports) in the Solomon Islands in order to support a long-term objective for low-carbon maritime transport and contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions in Solomon Islands and the Pacific.
