MTCC-Asia completed Guidelines of Two Pilot Projects.
Recently, MTCC-Asia funded by the European Union and implemented by the International Maritime Organization has completed the development of Guidelines on Ship Trim Optimization—Based on Machine Learning Method and Guidelines on Ship Fuel Oil Consumption Data Collection and Reporting. These two guidelines are regarded as one of main outputs under the framework of the clearly defined two pilot projects on “uptake of ship energy efficient technologies and operations” and “ship fuel oil consumption data collection and reporting”, respectively. To achieve the overall objective of supporting Asian developing countries in limiting and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their shipping sector through technical assistance/capacity-building to promote low-carbon and energy efficient shipping technologies and operations, more importantly, to raise the awareness of each practitioner in the shipping sector of better understanding the mission and the international regulatory framework developed under leading role of the IMO for the reduction of GHG emissions from ships, these publications are come into being based on a number of actions including technical seminars, data collection from demonstration ships, data analysis, application assessment and development of demo software.
