Power cable laid at Johan Sverdrup field

The laying of the cable supplying Johan Sverdrup with power from shore started last week. This helps make the North Sea giant one of the oil and gas fields with the lowest CO2 emissions worldwide. The cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria began laying the cables that will supply the Johan Sverdrup field with power from shore.

Paris MoU to ensure 2020 sulphur cap compliance

The Paris Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control held its 51st Committee meeting in Cascais, Portugal, from the 7-11 May 2018. The Paris MoU agreed to an information campaign by issuing a “Letter of Warning” starting 1 January 2019, to encourage timely compliance.

Monaco accedes to MARPOL Annex VI

Monaco has acceded to MARPOL Annex VI, the IMO treaty covering emissions from ship exhausts and energy efficiency. The instrument limits the main air pollutants contained in ships exhaust gas, including sulphur oxides and nitrous oxides, and prohibits deliberate emissions of ozone depleting substances.

Seven EU states call for greater climate action

Gathering in Paris on 25 April on the sidelines of the “2050 Pathways Platform” meeting, the ministers in charge of Climate change of France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Portugal, Germany and Luxembourg recognised the importance of an ambitious long term EU climate policy in line with Paris Agreement.

US cuts NASA’s Carbon Monitoring System

The US Government decided to cut NASA’s Carbon Monitoring System, a $10-million-a-year research. This project was tracking GHG emissions around the world and was reporting the carbon flows. As the Science Magazine reported, this development is putting the country’s compliance with the Paris Agreement at risk.

Impact of Paris Agreement commitments on national CO2 emissions

ITF OECD issued a report assessing the impact of transport commitments, made in the Nationally Determined Contributions of the Paris Agreement, on national-level transport CO2 emissions. Findings reveal NDCs provide CO2 reduction ambitions, but not yet clear pathways or measures to reach ambitions set by the Paris agreement.

2020 Global 0.5% sulphur cap challenges

Mr. Kyriacos Gregoriou, Marine Surveyor, DMS Cyprus, highlighted hot debated issues concerning the 2020 Global 0.5% sulphur cap challenge. He began his presentation with an overview of the SOx regulations examining later what the global limit actually means for ships and how these can meet low Sulphur emissions standards.

Port of Antwerp, Fluxys study ways to reduce Belgian CO2 emissions

In order to reduce Belgian CO2 emissions 35% by 2030, the Antwerp Port Authority and gas infrastructure operator Fluxys believe that carbon capture, storage and reuse by industry will play an important role against climate change. For this reason, the two will cooperate by taking further steps to shape the energy transition.

Electric ships, digitalisation capable of reducing shipping emissions

Electric ferries and digital communication between ships can play an important role in decarbonising maritime transport. Hybrid vehicles, using electricity in the harbour and fossil fuels on the open sea are becoming increasingly widespread, while a digital system will optimise their route as well as their messages to and from the harbour authorities.
