Posidonia 2022 in June to again spotlight global shipping, Greece’s sector-leading role
The major trade exhibition comes as the next threshold on an IMO “road map” for reducing CO2 emissions generated by the industry is Jan. 1, 2023
The iconic biennial Posidonia shipping exhibition will again resume in June, following a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The major trade exhibition comes as the next threshold on an IMO “road map” for reducing CO2 emissions generated by the industry is Jan. 1, 2023, when all ocean-going vessels must calculate their Energy Efficiency Existing Ship index (EEXI), as well as to establish an annual Cardon Intensity Indicator (CII).
The exhibition will take place from June 6 to 10, with initial reports confirming participation by all of the world’s major shipping registries, with the intent of formulating a collective answer to the obligations placed by the IMO, as well as a deadline for implementing EEXI and CII demands.
Additionally, shipbuilders will also have a prominent presence, especially manufacturers touting state-of-the-art designs, alternative fuel capacity and “smart ships”.
