ISO 50001, created by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system.
The Videotel training programme will include seven modules outlining how a fictitious shipping company sets about achieving ISO 50001 certification, and includes measures specific to the shipping industry, such as MARPOL’s fuel and emission controls in Emission Control Areas (ECAs).
“This is an excellent programme for ship owners and ship managers who want to review their energy performance,” says Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel.
“Whilst ships are considered to be the most fuel-efficient way of transporting cargo, there are still areas where improvements can be made. By following our course, shipping personnel will learn how to successfully implement an energy management programme that will not only help to reduce their company’s operating costs but will also result in a better environment.”
