Recent improvements in the design efficiency of new ships went into reverse last year, a new study has found. According to the CE Delft study, the average design efficiency of new bulk carriers, oil tankers and gas carriers was worse in 2016 than in 2015 and the share of new ships complying with future efficiency standards also decreased.
Harilaos N. Psaraftis, Professor at the Department of Management Engineering of Technical University of Denmark, shares his view on the recent exchange between Panos Zachariadis and James Mitchell on the subject of the Existing Vessel Design Index (EVDI).
James Mitchell, Carbon War Room clarifies that ship energy efficiency indicators are not ‘fake news’ and explains how these measures strive to make decarbonisation profitable for shipping.
ClassNK has issued Technical Information in relation to the revision of the IACS Procedural Requirement No.38 (Rev.1) regarding EEDI. Following a decision by IMO, the revision of the main body of PR38 adopted in March 2016 with a view to apply from July 2016.
Shipping’s only legally binding climate measure is not stimulating the uptake of new technologies or driving efficiency improvements, according to a new independent study. Since 2013 newly-built ships subject to the IMO design fuel efficiency standard – known as the EEDI – have performed much the same as those not covered, the report for NGOs Seas At Risk (SAR) and Transport & Environment (T&E) finds.
