ECM Training Services, LLC announces September 2015 Seminar
“ECA Compliance- Is LNG as Marine Fuel Viable?”
September 22-23 Seminar at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, home of the Houston Astros.
Norwalk, CT – ECM Training Services, LLC, in conjunction with Galway Group, is pleased to announce a two day training seminar “Pursuing ECA Compliance: Is LNG as a Marine Fuel Viable?” which will be held September 22 -23, 2015, at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, home of the Houston Astros.
In addition to being held at this very unique venue and having an agenda loaded with industry expert panel members, the first 30 registrants for ECM Training Services’ LNG conference will be provided complimentary club level tickets to the September 22nd Astros (44-34) game against the Los Angeles Angels (39-37) at Minute Maid Park. The two teams are currently fighting it out for first place in the American League West and this should shape up to be a great playoff battle, as well as providing a great opportunity for participants to continue networking among industry colleagues.
Dealing proactively with compliance regulations is a must in the maritime industry, and the goal for this seminar is to assist with informed decision-making. Emissions Control Areas (ECA) instituted a reduction of NOx and SOx emissions in shipping starting in January 2015. MARPOL Annex VI is intended to implement a 0.5% Sulphur content of bunker fuels “globally” by 2020 or 2025. These will have major implications for both ship operators and bunkering suppliers alike.
To accommodate these new requirements, it is crucial to understand and weigh all options to best achieve compliance…starting now. This two-day interactive seminar features a panel of industry experts to discuss one of our industry‘s most talked about new trends…LNG as Marine Fuel. Participants will take part in active discussions on topics including:
- Drivers of change
- Understanding of LNG and its relevance as a marine fuel
- How to influence regulation, standardization and safety
- Case studies and cost benefit analysis
At the seminar’s conclusion, participants will have the tools and knowledge to determine if LNG as Marine Fuel is a viable option for their organization in achieving new ECA Compliance Standards.
