Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
11th Biennial European Harbour Masters' Committee (EHMC) Seminar
Over the next few years, new IMO and EU legislation will impact the current fleet of ships, but just over 95% of this fleet will transition to alternative fuels only after the ship's lifespan. nevertheless, legislation will oblige them to cut emissions while at the same time, new fuels will soon become available for the leaders of the future fleet.
This will be the subject for the next EHMC seminar which will take place on 4 and 5 May 2023 - the fuel transition phase and avoiding a gap between obligations on ships and what ports can offer them.
The seminar is hosted by Algeciras Port Authority, which is leading the green transition in southern Europe.
