As part of these attempts, maritime officials in Morocco underwent the training, at a workshop in Casablanca from 19 to 21 June. The event is being conducted under the IMO-run GloMEEP Project on energy-efficiency and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH).
The event aims to equip better its participants, in order to quantify emissions in ports by developing port emissions assessments and benefit from guidance on how to set out strategies to cut emissions in port.
The event is being hosted by the Merchant Marine Directorate and the National Ports Agency (ANP), and held at ANP’s Port Training Institute. The workshop included a visit to the largest port crane simulator in the world, a 270-degree dome-based system that facilitates crane operators to learn how to operate heavy port equipment safely and effectively.
