Welcome to the Maritime Technology Cooperation Center for the Latin American Region (MTCC-Latin America) located in Panama City, Republic of Panama.
Our main objective is to facilitate and promote the adoption of efficient energy management technologies and practices for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from ships. We invite partners and stakeholders in this project to visit our website and participate in this initiative.

MEPC 76 and its technical outcomes towards a decarbonized shipping industry

The MTCC Latin America and the International Maritime University of Panama (UMIP), organize this Webinar, with a transcendental topic for the sustainability of the maritime sector: “MEPC 76 and its technical results towards a decarbonized shipping industry"

The event, which will take place on September 2, 2021 (time; 09: 00- 12:00 UTC-5: 00), through the virtual platforms of the organizers, aims to explain the technical results that were approved in the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 76), where amendments to Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) were adopted that will require ships to reduce their GHG. These amendments combine technical and operational approaches to improve the energy efficiency of ships.

The MTCC-Latin America as Maritime Technology Cooperation Center through the International Maritime University of Panama, we present this Webinar with the intention of training and guiding all parties involved on the agreements and decisions made at the MEPC 76 meeting of the IMO, where all vessels will be required to calculate their Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) following the technical means to improve their energy efficiency and establish their annual operational Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) and rating.

For the development of this Webinar, we will have the participation of national and international speakers, who will address the following topics below:

Topic 1: “EEXI Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index Calculation” by DNV (Antonio Prestigiacomo)
Topic 2: “CII Carbon Intensity Indicator Technical aspects” by Lloyd Register (Edilberto Peralta)
Topic 3: Panama Canal and Latin America: “The challenges of IMO MEPC 76 on the way to decarbonization” by ACP (Alexis Rodríguez)
Topic 4: “Enhanced SEEMP after MEPC 76” (Eng. Michalis Agapiou)
