Study visit to European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in Lisbon on 1 February 2024

A group of TEN Section members was sent in a study visit to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in Lisbon on 1 February 2024.

A very fruitful and interesting discussion took place on the EESC opinions on the Maritime Safety Package adopted in September 2023, the decarbonization of maritime transport, and working conditions of seafarers.

One of the most exciting moments of the visit was the in-depth explanation given to our members in the Maritime Support Services Centre on surveillance in real time of ships around Europe and the would regarding pollution and accidents prevention. In the Virtual Reality Environment for Ship Inspection members were acquainted with parts of the training provided to ship inspectors.
