The Latin America Maritime Technology Cooperation Centre, part of a global network established under an IMO-EU project, has been launched in Panama.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The centre, hosted by the Universidad Marítima Internacional de Panamá (UMIP), is one of five such centres established under the GMN project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and run by IMO.

The centres, in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Pacific regions, act as regional focal points for a range of activities, including improving compliance with international energy-efficiency regulations; promoting uptake of low-carbon technologies and operations in maritime transport, and establishing voluntary pilot data-collection and reporting systems.

“The global network of MTCCs will promote understanding and knowledge of technologies and operations to improve energy efficiency in the maritime sector and will help to navigate shipping into a low-carbon future,” said IMO’s Jose Matheickal, speaking at the Centre’s opening ceremony.{/mprestriction}
