IMO Ship-Port Interface Study

The MEPC 68/INF.16 document presents the results of an IMO commissioned study that deals with a broad range of topics on ship-port interface including a large number of existing and future innovative technologies that ship owners and operators, ports, and other stakeholders can consider and evaluate for reducing emissions in the port area. A number of technology classification has been done in this study including for example “existing technologies” that are considered to be readily implement-able to reduce emissions from various operational modes of ships associated with the port area. This IMO commissioned study’s focus is ship-port interface thus is not dealing with portside measures (MariEMS 2017).
