Ports Minister visits Indian Register of shipping Headquarters

The Union Minister for Ports Sarbananda Sonowal, visited the Indian Register of Shipping (IRS) Head Office in Mumbai last week and took a review of the organization.


He interacted with officials at various levels in the organisation. During his discussion with the Rule and Research & Development team of IRS, he tried to understand the various aspects of research projects.


The green initiatives taken by IRS in reducing greenhouse gas emissions towards meeting International Maritime Organization (IMO) climate goals were appreciated by the Minister.


Mr Sonowal also took keen interest in understanding the environmental impact of shipping and how IRS is supporting design and operational methodologies using advanced technologies. During his address to IRS officials, he laid great stress on adoption of technology, adding a caveat that such advancement should not be at the cost of ecology and the environment. 


The Minister congratulated the IRS team on achieving global recognition and a strong fleet growth. He said the contribution of IRS in the last 48 years has been praiseworthy and urged it to continue to take a greater role in the development of maritime ecosystem in the country, said a release.
