DNV reveals technology uptake towards 2020

Simulation model using global shipping data and technology DNV has developed a simulation model using global shipping data and technology specific information to predict the deployment of emission reduction and energy efficiency technologies up to 2020. The results show that high fuel costs will result in a drive towards more energy efficient ships ahead of the EEDI regulatory timeframe. Fuel choices up to 2020 will be driven by the time spent in an Emissions Control Area (ECA), but distillate is a more likely option than scrubbers for most ships towards 2020.By 2020, it is expected that new tankers, bulkers and container vessels will be up to 30 per cent more energy efficient than today's newbuildings. DNV predicts that one-third of the reductions will be cost effective for shipowners. The Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) will be the driver for the remaining two-thirds of the efficiency gains.These results have been obtained by examining the technology choices available to ensure regulatory compliance and how these technology options will be adopted based on simulated investment decisions for individual ships.The model can support owners and managers in their business-critical decisions by providing a ship-specific scenario analysis as well as market predictions for specific ship ...

RINA to Help Shipowners Save Fuel and Reduce Emissions

Classification society launches range of services to save fuel and reduce emissions International classification society RINA has launched a co-ordinated range of services to help shipowners save fuel and reduce emissions. There are seven different elements to the services which can be adopted individually or as a complete package.The seven services are: auditing to ISO14001 Environmental Management certification; auditing for ISO50001 Energy Management Certification; development of the SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan); EEDI verification; Energy Saving and Energy Conservation Analysis; Fuel Consumption Data Analysis and Decision Support Solutions and tailored energy saving training courses.Andrea Cogliolo, head of innovation, RINA Group, says, "All shipowners need some form of assistance and support to cut energy costs. We have a lot of experience working with major passenger ship owners and others to devise energy saving measures, and we know how to implement the ones that work best. Owners can use our services at the level appropriate to them, from simple compliance through to a major re-engineering of how they use energy on ship and ashore. The training complements all that, by ensuring that the people who have to make it all work know what they are doing, and why."RINA's auditing services to ...

Research project on the topic of EEDI for small General Cargo Vessels

Conoship, in close cooperation with MARIN Conoship, in close cooperation with MARIN, has been awarded the project "EEDI, Ontwikkeling van alternative CO2 index voor kleine handelsvaart schepen en short sea schepen" by Holland Shipbuilding Association.As of the first of January 2013 new regulations come into force aiming at reducing CO2 emissions from ships. An important aspect is the energy efficiency design index, or EEDI.This index is a measure of the relationship between the CO2 a vessel produces and the benefit to society, expressed as deadweight times speed. Previous research projects indicated problems for ships to comply with the new regulations. The findings show that a substantial part of General Cargo Vessels in the lower deadweight range will not meet the requirements.The purpose of the work Conoship is assigned to is to find an explanation of the variation and, if any explanation can be found, make a proposal for a more fair calculation approach for small General Cargo Vessels by including alternative correction factors and/or additional reference lines.By having a leading role in this research project, Conoship gains expertise in the field of EEDI regulation. With this expertise, Conoship is well able to optimise its future designs regarding the EEDI requirements.Source: ...

IMO: MEPC 63 Outcome

IMO adopts important guidelines to support implementation of mandatory energy efficiency measures An important series of guidelines to support the uniform implementation of mandatory measures to increase energy efficiency and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from international shipping was adopted by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), when it met for its 63rd session from 27 February to 2 March 2012, at IMO Headquarters in London, paving the way for the regulations to be smoothly and uniformly implemented by Administrations and industry.The MEPC also continued its intensive discussion on market-based measures for greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping. During the busy session, the MEPC also adopted amendments to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) relating to regional arrangements for port reception facilities; and adopted guidelines related to the implementation of the revised MARPOL Annex V (Garbage) and the Hong Kong Convention for the recycling of ships.The MEPC also granted basic and final approval to a number of ballast water management systems that make use of active substances.Guidelines for implementation of energy efficiency measures adoptedThe MEPC adopted four sets of guidelines intended to assist in the implementation of the ...

EEDI Unsuitable for Existing Ships

ICS has confirmed its opposition to the application of the EEDI to existing ships ICS has reviewed its position with respect to progress being made at IMO on further measures to reduce CO2 emissions from international shipping, including refinements to the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), discussed by IMO in January, having been adopted as part of the ground breaking international agreement reached at IMO in July 2011 and which will apply to new ships from 2013.ICS has also reviewed the operational and technical measures now being taken by existing ships, in support of the industry's target of improving efficiency per tonne/km by 20% by 2020.With respect to the EEDI, ICS has confirmed its opposition to the application of the EEDI to existing ships. This is not what the EEDI was developed for, and the goals set by IMO for the design of new ships, and the complex formulae developed for them, are completely inappropriate for the existing fleet.ICS will be making the industry's considered view on this clear at the IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee in March. The position is reinforced by a joint statement recently made by the Round Table of international shipping associations.Source: ISF/ICS
