AMARREE Programme

Accompagnement des MARins pêcheurs pour la Réalisation d’Économies d’Énergie

The fuel consumption of fishing vessels is a key issue, not only to reduce environmental impact but also to keep vessel operating costs under control. With this aim in mind, in 2019 Coopération Maritime launched the AMARREE programme. Designed to lower fishing vessels’ fuel consumption, the programme consists of three major strategies: setting up a fuel economy observatory, installing econometers, and training in how to operate energy-efficient vessels.

See a video presenting the programme.

Framework

The ESC

Under the ESC scheme, introduced in 2005 as part of France’s Energy Policy Framework Law (P.O.P.E. Act, articles 14–17 of Law No. 2005-781), the so-called “obliged” energy suppliers (providers of fuel, electricity, gas, domestic fuel, etc.), are required to implement incentives that encourage energy-saving operations. The programme is entirely financed by Total Marketing France in its capacity as an “obliged party”.

Programme targets

The AMARREE programme is intended for vessels that:

Sail under the French flag have an active operating licence are between 6 and 24 metres long source more than 50% of their fuel in mainland France and/or French overseas departments

Progress

Since the launch of the programme, 100% econometers have been fitted, 33 replenishing stations provide their fishing fuel prices every month, and 190 vessels provide their monthly diesel consumption.

If you are interested, you can fill our questionnary here. With this informations, we will be able to establish the compatibility between your boat and the econometer. 66 on 250 persons have already filled it.
