In his keynote speech at the opening of the convention, IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim congratulated the bunker and refining industries for their role in delivering a successful IMO 2020 transition.
“”Bunker suppliers have been at the heart of this successful transition, along with refineries; therefore I commend all involved,” he said.
Mr. Lim also said more action would be needed to speed up research and development into zero-carbon fuels, and that the IMO wanted to act as the global forum and promoter of this process.
IBIA Director Unni Einemo used her welcome address to set out some of IBIA’s work this year, including organising online meetings to discuss various subjects, taking education and training online and turning the annual forum into a global event for the first time on a custom-made conference platform.
“We have so much content for you all, and I’m sure there will be something for everyone at our convention,” Einemo said.
“We will hear about the recent past, the present and thoughts for the future.”
Meanwhile IBIA Chairman Henrik Zederkof’s welcome address took on the decarbonisation agenda, saying the COVID-19 pandemic should not be taken as an excuse for missing the IMO’s GHG targets.
“”COVID-19 is today just another part of the challenge we need to face to come to those targets,” he said.
“To find solutions, and develop the products and skills required to reach these targets, we need to partner up across companies, organisations, business areas and across segments and borders.”
We hope you have all enjoyed the first day of the convention, and will take part in the live regional and panel discussions over the next two days.
We wish you a productive Convention ahead.
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
