The PEMA Student Challenge question for 2018 has been launched. The theme of environmental challenge and productivity at ports was announced at PEMA’s AGM in Bilbao in January. It focuses heavily on-air quality and the reduction of CO2 emissions at terminals.

This year’s challenge follows a number of high profile international initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions in the maritime sector and competitors will be challenged to draw on existing technologies such as shore power and “green” energy to propose a sustainable, yet economically competitive solution.

Teams will be judged not only on their technical knowledge and creativity, but also on their ability to establish a realistic and cost-effective solution that could be implemented in a real port environment.

As tradition, there is a prize of €1,000 up for grabs and the top three teams will be invited to present their solution at the Student Challenge Final, hosted live at TOC Europe in Rotterdam, 14th June. The finalists will have the opportunity to attend the TOC and network with industry professionals who will judge the event.

Of the challenge, Fae Brennan, chair of the PEMA Communications, Events and Educational Programmes Committee, said: “The PEMA Student Challenge provides a unique opportunity for young people to experience the TOC Europe and connect with industry leaders. The Student Challenge is helping to bring up emerging talent and we are committed to making a continued success of it.”
