The multinational highlights its responsible maritime services in the environmental protection exhibit held in the Clock Building of the Port Authority of Valencia
The exhibition runs from 5 to 9 June, organized by Valenciaport and 19 companies in the sector to mark World Environment Day
Together with Valenciaport and seventeen other companies in the sector, Boluda Corporación Marítima is taking part in an exhibit of environmental protection action, held in the Clock Building from 5 to 9 June to celebrate World Environment Day.
This initiative allows the maritime multinational and other participating companies to showcase their environmental commitment each year by demonstrating the initiatives they have developed aimed at port activity impact reduction. Seventeen ISO 14001-certified companies are testament to this commitment.
Boluda Corporación Marítima participates within the framework of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy to demonstrate first-hand its maritime environmental protection initiatives.
The two panels on display at the exhibition highlight the company’s environmental responsibility by committing to sustainability in the ports and oceans where its ships operate.
Along these lines Boluda Corporación Marítima towage division Boluda Towage and Salvage has opted for intelligent tugs (smart ships), which reduce CO2 emissions, use smart action for lower energy consumption and produce an 80% reduction in noise, to the benefit of crews and port. In fact, Boluda Towage and Salvage invests heavily each year in new technologies and the latest technical anti-pollution advances. Thanks to the sensors installed in the units, the new tugboats can adjust each tug operation to its port and manoeuvre, reducing consumption and gas emissions significantly; Boluda has pioneered the use of this advanced technology.
In addition, in the new Valencia base Boluda Towage and Salvage tugs can connect to onshore power supply in the Port Authority of Valencia, which also reduces noise pollution and emissions.
Likewise, the containerships operated by the corporation’s shipping company Boluda Lines reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the gases most responsible for the greenhouse effect, by 7.8% kg per mile. Nitrogen oxide (N2O) emissions have also been reduced by 22.88% kg per ship and methane (CH4), by 13.4% kg per hour.
Over the weekend, the exhibition will also host a program of various didactic workshops for young children, with educational material, posters and games designed especially for the occasion.
