This Plan, which applies to all fleet vessels, provides standard procedures and practice on best energy management under the various operational modes of each vessel.
  • Ensure the availability of information and of necessary resources to achieve the set objectives and targets.
  • Promote energy efficiency awareness through training to the shore and sea-going personnel and implement energy related campaigns and other relevant personnel incentive/motivating programs.
