Course summary

The IMO Decarbonisation program focusing on Zero Emissions as well as the European Green Deal have many options. Making a sustainable choice is dependent on many factors in novel technologies without the advantage of previous experience and / or prescriptive regulations.

This course, spanning either a two-day classroom-based session or a three-day virtual class (with six hours per day), equips participants with essential knowledge to discuss and compare available options and grasp practical implementation aspects. It covers the regulatory framework and is a starting point to the process of making a selection and creating a design proposal.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for all stakeholders in ship design, construction and management; e.g. representatives of Ship Designers, Ship Construction and Repair Yards, Original Equipment Manufacturers, Educators, Ship Owners, Managers, NGO’s, Charters and Cargo Owners.
