10th European Bunker Fuel Conference

in Business Insight

The Gibraltar Port Authority recently took part in the 10th European Bunker Fuel Conference in Amsterdam.

John Ghio, Deputy Captain of the Port, participated in panel discussions on setting the shipping, bunkering and energy sectors’ strategies in the route towards the enforcement of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) cap once it comes into place, and the preparations Gibraltar Port is making. This cap will further reduce the use of sulphur in fuel to 0.5%.

John also met with some of the Port’s partners based in the Netherlands during his trip and was another opportunity to reassert Gibraltar’s status among industry peers, and this was confirmed by Manuel Tirado, CEO and Captain of the Port, who commented that invitations to events such as these continued to demonstrate the importance of Gibraltar Port within the bunkering and shipping community.
