The agreement is specifically tailored towards adopting sustainable ship waste recycling practices and strengthening response operations during oil and hazardous substances spills.

In addition, it is also tailored towards deploying satellite monitoring, modelling, and simulation across marine conservation efforts, enhance innovation in marine waste management, and incentivise economic and investment opportunities arising from SIRC’s incubators and projects.

In late August, Mawani and the Port of Rotterdam signed a partnership agreement aimed at enhancing joint cooperation in the field of developing smart ports.

More recently, MAWANI announced that its ports achieved an increase in the number of handling containers during the month of August 2023.
