Decarbonization: New Strategic Orientation for Moroccan Aeronautics Industry

Casablanca – The Grouping of Moroccan Aeronautics and Spatial Industries (GIMAS) has affirmed its wish to accompany Moroccan aeronautics companies to decarbonize their production.

Decarbonization, as well as digitalization, Industry 4.0 and the conquest of new markets are among the new strategic orientations of GIMAS, according to a statement by the Grouping which held last Tuesday its Annual General Meeting in the presence of the Minister of Industry, Trade and the Green and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy.

In terms of decarbonization, GIMAS advocates conducting an inventory in Morocco, a benchmark with model countries, and developing strategic recommendations to be shared with the supervisory authority on the process to be implemented. It also recommends the preparation of a comprehensive system “ready for action”, including environmental and human aspects.

The grouping calls for “supporting the green economy” to accompany industrialists in the transition to decarbonized production, using renewable energies and creating an ad hoc commission for all industrialists.

GIMAS also announced the launch of the three-phase “Morocco Aeronautics 4.0” program. The first phase concerns the creation of a project to support Industry of the future 4.0, while the second phase touches on capitalizing on the know-how and methods deployed in the different companies in order to create a complete ecosystem allowing training, exchange and inter-company benchmarking.

The third phase aims to deploy synergies between technology experts, solution providers and Fablab based on a “local to local” principles centered on the needs of SMEs.

GIMAS presented communication plan targeting Germany, England and Canada and a series of working group sessions throughout the year to accompany the transformation of the sector. It also announced participation in several international trade shows including the Digital Aerospace Meetings Morocco.

This first 100% digital event, held in partnership with the Moroccan Agency for the Development of Investments and Exports (AMDIE) and ABE (Advanced Business Events), will be held over a period of 7 months from January 19 to July 19, 2021.
