Share your views on marine fuels readiness tool

Ahead of the Climate and Energy Committee meeting, we are seeking your feedback on the Port Readiness Levels for Marine Fuels (PRL-MF) Assessment Tool. PRL-MF was developed by the World Ports Climate Action Program (WPCAP) and the IAPH Clean Marine Fuels (CMF) Working Group. The tool allows users to assess both the port readiness for a call of vessels sailing on a marine fuel that is still new to the port, and the port readiness for the bunkering of such a marine fuel. The tool will be released on the World Ports Sustainability Program website later this month. IAPH and WPCAP are now considering the development of a dynamic digital version of PRL-MF, which could offer further assistance and functionalities. To that end, we would like to get a better feeling of the intended use of the tool. Interested members are invited to respond to a very short survey regarding PRL-MF’s foreseen use at their port. The deadline for responses is Monday 15 January. The survey results will be discussed during the Climate and Energy Committee meeting on Tuesday 16 January. Any member wishing to review a copy of the PRL-MF Assessment Tool should contact IAPH Technical Director Antonis Michail at [email protected].
