The Certified Energy Manager®

Certified Measurement and Verification Professional

Association of Energy Engineers

Chief Engineer Visa, Steamship or Motor Ship


Given that shipowners can no longer ignore the environmental issues when making financial and economic decisions, GHGES Marine Solutions provides its clients with simple and cost-effective solutions for reducing fuel consumption and thereby reduce their greenhouse gases emissions.

We offer a personalized approach that is tailored to each ship and focused on seafarers.

GHGES Marine Solutions is a company composed of marine chief engineers and certified energy experts that have the following designations: Certified Energy Manager (CEM), Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (PCMV), and member of the Association of Energy Engineers (EEA), and who specialize in energy efficiency and GHG emissions reduction.

The company has developed a unique approach for implementing energy efficiency management programs in the maritime sector. We have carried out more than 125 projects on dozens of ships.

Climate change is an issue of serious concern that requires us to react quickly by making adjustments to our processes and procedures.

Today, thanks to the financial assistance programs of the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), there is an opportunity for Québec-based shipowners to take a further step toward reducing GHG emissions.

As a result of the monitoring mechanisms put in place by the MTQ, energy savings will be measured, quantified and proven, thereby lessening financial risk for shipowners and, at the same time, bringing about GHG reductions for each method or project undertaken.


News from GHGES


The COVID-19 pandemic is causing the disruption of our routines and the suspension of many projects. Adding to this situation is the drop in the price of oil which is holding back energy saving initiatives because their returns on investment are no longer attractive.

This year, for the first time, we will probably achieve and even surpass the GHG reduction targets recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and proposed by the Conference of the Parties (COP). As a result, we will come to understand the importance of the efforts required to achieve these goals and will thus be able to avoid the dangers facing us in the wake of climate change. The economy is the cornerstone of our civilization, but life and survival are paramount. If we lose our ecosystems, the economy will be sidelined.

Keep in mind that, in order to save our civilization from the dangers that await us, we must put in a great deal of effort, not just take small steps. By implementing procedures and projects that are steered through rigorous standards-based monitoring, we can achieve our energy saving goals and avoid wasting our non-renewable resources. This is only the first step in the development of more ambitious projects, but it is nonetheless an essential one.

We just need to learn the right lessons from the present crisis: ambitious measures can be taken on behalf of our climate only if society and governments acknowledge the urgency of the situation and act accordingly.

We must now be very cautious about how we proceed to restart our economy and be wary of not remaking massive investments in fossil fuels.

Let’s hope we will be able to seize the opportunity once this pandemic is behind us.

Many people believe that, when everything returns to normal, the world will no longer be the same. Let’s hope it will be for the better.

Good luck to all!

Energy Audit

Before taking corrective actions or implementing new methods to improve a ship’s energy efficiency, an accurate assessment of its condition must first be conducted.

This information is essential for identifying the most cost-effective projects and constitutes the baseline mesurement for proving the results obtained.

Preparing Applications for Financial Aid

Enable the shipowner to reduce project costs by means of a financial contribution from the Government. Contact GHGES for more details.

Sponsorship Program

Purpose: Create a culture of energy efficiency within the business.

Method: Meet with the main stakeholders (superintendents, fleet managers) and explain the program framework.
We provide classroom training on incorporating energy efficiency into individual ships as well as entire fleets. The basic principles governing energy conservation are also covered.

Organizing and Supporting Project Implementation

GHGES makes suggestions with respect to system upgrades, equipment choices and control logics. We also recommend specialized contractors who are qualified to do the work.

We perform the commissioning and start-up of the equipment.
