    Port Readiness Levels for Clean Marine Fuel Bunkering

    In a project initiated by the IAPH Clean Marine Fuels Working Group, the mantle was taken by the World Ports Climate Action Program (WPCAP) network to jointly create a practical port readiness tool. The aim is for ports to assess their overall readiness level in handling and managing new zero and low carbon marine fuels for the new generation of dual fuel ships calling at their terminals. This session will provide delegates with an overview of that tool and how to deploy it at their port.
