Shipping company consortium for the introduction and implementation of energy efficiency measures

Following the 2015 climate agreement in Paris international stakeholders, especially from the European side, will put greater pressure on shipping companies to make their contribution to the implementation of the climate goals set. Over the last few years the IMO and the European Commission have adopted a series of regulations aimed at limiting emissions from seagoing vessels and making maritime services more energy-efficient.

Wilhelm Borchert currently supports a consortium of German and Cypriot shipping companies in the strategic decision-making and financial implementation of planned energy efficiency measures. In a fleet-overlapping project data on ship-side bunker use and emissions will be collected, analysed and improved with the goal of sustainable energy efficiency enhancement.

Various funding opportunities at national and European level were examined for the customers. Based on our analysis and strategic recommendations an application under the European CEF-T program for 50% funding was designed, prepared and successfully submitted on behalf of the shipping companies.
