Regarding efficiency, Capt. Morales expressed confidence in the expertise of the management and technical team.

In line with the global emphasis on sustainability, IMP Shipyard has implemented several green practices at its multi-million-peso shipyard. The facility utilizes solar power lights, wastewater treatment systems, rainwater impounding facilities, and blocking nets to minimize dust and paint contamination. The company is also committed to installing solar panels in its buildings, promoting the use of renewable energy, and contributing to the preservation and cleanliness of Lilang Lake.

Capt. Morales shared the company's vision, which aligns with the Maritime Industry Development Plan 2028, approved by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. The vision encompasses five key priority programs focusing on shipbuilding, ship repair, capacity building, community empowerment, and seafarers' integration.

Furthermore, IMP Shipyard is the first Board of Investments-registered SBSR corporation entitled to tax incentives under the Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises Law, as stated by Capt.
