Supported Event – Maritime Week Americas

May 21 @ 8:00 am May 23 @ 5:00 pm

Maritime Week Americas (MWA24) returns to Panama in May 2024 and will be looking at the importance of canals in world trade. It will discuss the latest developments at both the Panama and Suez canals and their long-term, wider impact on shipping and bunker markets further afield. The event will also focus on marine fuels markets in Panama and across the Americas and Caribbean .

MWA24 will take a very close look at alternative marine fuels in terms of supply and demand, With the first LNG bunkering permit having been awarded by the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), it is only a matter of time before ship-to-ship LNG bunkering begins in earnest at the Pacific end of the Canal, to add to the number of bunkering hubs throughout the Americas where LNG is becoming a truly viable alternative fuel.

Biofuels are now starting to follow LNG’s example as a ‘new’ fuel whose time has come. These and other alternatives will be examined in depth, both during the MWA Conference and in the one-day ship.energy Alternative Fuels Course that precedes it.

MWA24 will also feature some amazing networking events, including a visit to the Panama Canal and – back by popular demand – an onboard tour of a Monjasa bunker tanker.
