39th Motorship Propulsion & Emission Conference – 10-11 May, Grand Elysee Hotel, Hamburg ,Germany – IWSA official supporting organisation

Building or retrofitting vessels fit for the future, whatever it may hold, is more challenging than ever before. Environmental regulations, economic pressures and technological advances are already reshaping how the global merchant fleet is fuelled, powered and equipped. In light of these challenges, the 39th Motorship Propulsion & Emission Conference brings together owners/operators and equipment manufacturers to discuss technical advances and in-the-field experiences that will equip the industry to ‘future-proof’ the global merchant fleet.

Message from Timbercoast & Arrival festival details:


We wish you and your family a very happy Easter Holiday and we trust you will find all the chocolate eggs on the Easter hunt!  We invite you to join us for the AVONTUUR Arrival Festival in either Bremen on April 22nd or in Eslfleth on April 29th.  Saturday, April 22nd at the Bremen Europahafen – Konsul-Schmidt-Str. 10 join us in celebration of World Earth Day.

11:00 Begin
11:30 AVONTUUR Arrival
12-13 Open Ship
13-17 Coffee unloading
17:00 Open Ship

Entertainment Program:
11:00 FREE All day sailing for kids
13:30 Music by bye bye
14:30 Capitan Bockermann Address
15:00 Music by Jana Hansmann
17:00 Music by Nagelritz

Organic coffee transported between continents by wind, the sailing cargo ship the AVONTUUR will arrive in Bremen on Earth Day 2017 signalling a fundamental shift towards a truly sustainable shipping culture. What better way to wake people up to the lackluster approach of the shipping industry towards global warming than through a cup of coffee?  
Germany is the largest coffee importer in the European Union and Bremen is the city at the centre of the trade.  Within Germany, the shipping of this daily ritual emits over 160,000 tons of CO2 per year which equivalent to 35,000 passenger vehicles be driven for one year.

In cooperation with EU Dual Port Project, IWSA and BREMEN BIKE IT.

Can you help us unload the coffee? If so, please right us back to

“Shipping- part of the climate solution”
The International Chamber of Shipping, Armateurs de France and the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association

In recent decades, human activity has impacted climate and natural environment all over our planet. 90 per cent of the world’s traded goods are seaborne and shipping is today the most energy-efficient mode of transportation. As the largest and most important means of global, intercontinental transport, shipping has a strong responsibility for ensuring sustainable development and a healthy environment.
Climate change is a global challenge, and shipping wants to take part in the important discussions on climate change mitigation. The industry is committed to reducing its CO2 footprint and is working to improve its climate performance.

Open discussion on “Shipping – part of the climate solution”
Tuesday December 1st at Centre Pompidou, Paris, at 10 am- 14 pm–cop-21-roundtable/
