Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP), a joint project by Global Environment Facility (GEF), UN Development Programme (UNDP), and the International Maritime Organization (IMO), started training on ship fuel data collection at China on Wednesday (14 November).
The GloMEEP training course, the first of its kind, was held in Hangzhou. Some 25 participants learned how to develop a ship fuel oil consumption data collection plan, verify the data collected and how to report data to IMO. The workshop was hosted by the China Maritime Safety Administration.
From 1 January 2019 onwards, ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above will have to collect consumption data for each type of fuel oil they use.
These ships account for approximately 85% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from international shipping.
The data collected will be kept in a database hosted by IMO and will provide a firm basis on which future decisions on additional energy-efficiency measures, over and above those already adopted by IMO, can be made.
GloMEEP is a joint GEF-UNDP-IMO project, run by IMO, supporting the uptake and implementation of energy-efficiency measures for shipping, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

KPI OC seeking to recover debt of USD 805,602.15 over five bunker deliveries, not including accrued interest of about USD 363,000 since 15 September, showed court documents obtained by Manifold Times.
Discussions around the need to develop methanol bunkering operations are taking place at numerous ports ahead of estimated demand of above 7M mtpa by 2030, says Chris Chatterton of Methanol Institute.
‘Economics of the shipping market will be the key driver enabling methanol to be adopted at a higher pace going forth over next couple years as market begins to return to more normal rates,’ states COO.
Integr8 Fuel injunction varied by Singapore Court to allow former employees to start work at Hartree Group in December 2022 following failure to produce evidence on biofuels development plans.
Variability of sources can affect the stability and performance of biofuel bunkers produced from these feedstocks, in turn leading to difficulties in meeting regulations and industry standards, shares Bryan Quek.
Top three positive movers in 2022 were Bunker House Petroleum Pte Ltd (+7), Eastpoint International Marketing Pte Ltd (+5), and Eng Hua Company (Pte) Ltd (+6); newcomer Sinopec Fuel Oil (Singapore) gets 19th spot.
