Next IAPH Harbor Café on Clean Energy Marine hubs

As part of the run-up to the World Ports Conference in Abu Dhabi, all members are very welcome to join the next IAPH Harbor Café, organised by our colleagues from the Europe and Africa regions and taking place on a Teams call on 29 September at 2.30 PM CEST. The Café will focus on the recently announced Clean Energy Marine Hubs initiative launched by both IAPH and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) in July. The session will feature an overview by ICS’ head of innovation and partnerships Nelson Mojarro who will discuss the role of ports in the production, storage, and seaborne transportation of future low and zero carbon energy on a global scale and how to de-risk investments in port infrastructure. The session will include interventions on this subject by Hamburg Port Authority, and their partnership with the Port of Halifax, as well as by Namibian Ports Authority on their ambitious plans to be part of the first movers. In addition to looking at the export of low and zero carbon fuels by tankers, the Harbor Café will also look at the bunkering of ships using new alternative fuels such as methanol and ammonia as well as existing fuels such as LNG and how ports can establish infrastructure. This will include an interview with the chair and vice-chair of the IAPH Clean Marine Fuels Working Group from the ports of Amsterdam and Rotterdam on safety tools available to all ports, as well as an update on the development of a Port Readiness Tool for new alternative fuels.
