NAMEPA is proud of Dorian LPG who are leaders in reducing emissions by investing in technologies to mitigate industry’s impact on the environment. Congratulations, Dorian!
Much of our attention these past few weeks has been focused on the “what” needs to be done in order to meet the MEPC guideline for ship emission reductions of ½ by 2050 over 2008 levels. Now we need to address getting to the “how”. We must work collaboratively to identify and implement strategies for achieving this goal.
What a wonderful overview of the challenges and complexity faced by the Houston Pilots. We are proud they are NAMEPA members, and thank them—and all pilots—for the vital role they play in the safe seaborn transportation of commerce!
Delighted to see the report by the International Transport Forum outlining ways in which ships and ports can work together to reduce CO2. We can no longer work in silos, with ships not understanding the challenges ports face, and vice-versa. We need collaboration to decarbonize the entire transportation chain.
Total Marine Solutions is partnering with SUNY Maritime College to host TMS’ Ocean Guardian environmental compliance platform on Maritime College’s T/S Empire State VI for this year’s sea term. It is critically important that tomorrow’s officers have the tools they need to embrace compliance. Ocean Guardian facilitates compliance by overlaying the vessel’s location with the corresponding regulatory components.

Never before in recorded history has so much change and disruption in the shipping industry been occurring at such an accelerated pace. The advancements in digitalization, automation, and more are prompting risks as well as rewards, requiring intentional expertise. This intentionality will help mitigate risks and will help protect the marine environment from accidents and damage. -Carleen Lyden Walker, Co-Founder and Executive Director, NAMEPA
