EcoREFITEC on course to deliver green retrofit tool
Fri, 15 March 2013
In a bid to limit the environmental impact of the shipping industry, the IMO has been developing and implementing various measures to prevent or reduce pollution. Many of these regulations will require the existing fleet to be retrofitted with green technology at shipyards. To address such issues 12 different organisations are taking part in a medium scale EU funded project, ECO-Refitec. The aim is to support the shiprepair yard through the development of new technologies and tools.
