IMO’s continuing efforts to promote environmentally sound shipping received a boost today with the launch of Glomeep.imo.org.

The new website provides important information and updates on the Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP) project – a GEF-UNDP-IMO initiative that supports the uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping, thereby reducing the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. A key feature of the site is an information portal on energy efficiency technologies – covering areas such as machinery, propulsion and hull improvements, and energy recovery.

The portal builds on the work undertaken by IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee to promote technical cooperation and technology transfer relating to improving the energy efficiency of ships.

In addition to  the website's launch, the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) has joined the GloMEEP project as its third strategic partner, joining the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST)
