Demonstration Project Agreement for HCFC free low GWP alternatives in refrigeration in fisheries sector in the Maldives signed between the Ministry and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Minister Honorable Thoriq Ibrahim signed the agreement while the United Nations (UN) Representative to the Maldives, Ms. Shoko Noda signed the contract on behalf of UNDP.
The main objective of the project is to demonstrate low-GWP HCFC free alternative for use by fishing industry in the Maldives. The Value of the Project is MVR 2.2 Million.
Project Name: This project is expected to have a significant impact on (a) HCFC phase-out in the country with low-GWP alternatives and (b) scaled up adoption of HCFC free alternatives in countries with large fishing industry consuming HCFCs for example Fiji, and other Pacific Island Countries.
The project results can be used in other countries that have similar HCFC use in fishing industry and thus help the countries address challenges in fishing industry, particularly sea-borne vessels’ HCFC refrigerant use.
