MAST Maritime Services S.A. in cooperation with their exclusive Principals CSSC Shanghai Marine Energy Saving Technology Co., Ltd. (CMES-Tech) held a decarbonization seminar session (Accelerating Change: The benefits of Energy Saving Devices for your fleet) for the Greek Shipping community in Athens on May 25, 2023, followed by a dinner to foster greater interest in energy efficiency improvement, familiarize the participants with the new technological advancements and provide a forum to exchange views on the decarbonization plan of the industry. The midday session was attended by technically oriented executives from reputable ship management and shipowning companies and senior personnel from shipbuilding and ship classification societies.
The decarbonization seminar included a couple of technical presentations through interaction with the participants and case studies on actual existing projects. Discussions revolved around hydrodynamic energy efficiency technologies; innovative Air Layer systems; capturing wind energy; and the methodology to achieve the optimal vessel performance enhancement.
The first part of the decarbonization seminar focused on Energy Saving Devices (ESD) and the proven savings that shipowners can benefit from CMES-Tech products and engineering studies. In addition, the second part introduced new technologies that have already been initiated to be implemented including an Air Layer system for hull drag reduction and also Rotor Sails to harvest wind energy.
Overall, the event was an opportunity for CMES-Tech to exchange views with the participants through a detailed discussion on the decarbonization plan and ease the path to greener ships.

During the last year’s Posidonia 2022 Exhibition event, brought together the shipping industry professionals from across the globe after 4 years of waiting. MAST Maritime Services, organized and offered the opportunity to attend the decarbonization seminar: Get in line with the industry’s decarbonization plan. Hence, along with Lloyd’s Register, Rightship, and CMES-Tech, they enlightened the paths to a more sustainable future according to the new measures (EEXI, CII).
Decarbonization of the world fleet is one of the biggest challenges today. Therefore, EEXI and CII have been set to drastically minimize the carbon footprint.
It is not incorrect that the new measures will influence the technical and therefore the operational profile of the vessels. Having said this, we can’t ignore the fact that, Shipowners are bouncing from one solution to another without a stable plan.
In this regard and in order to address the matter, the seminar incorporated speakers from; a Classification society, a 3rd party Maritime Organisation and an Energy Saving Technology developing company.
EEXI CII Seminar: Get in line with the industry’s decarbonization plan. Thus, enlightening the paths to a more sustainable future.
