A study led by CE Delft and UMAS, funded by the European Commission, analyzes potential short-term measures listed in the International Maritime Organization’s initial strategy on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships. According to the report, both speed limits and operational efficiency standards will require most ships to decrease their speed if the 2030 CO2-intensity ambition is to be met.
In 2018, once again new regulations took place in order the maritime industry to stay on the pulse and remain sustainable.Namely, the latest regulatory impacting the industry within the year include 26 major updates which will define the future of the industry.
The Republic of Marshall islands issued a notice to remind that the 31st December 2018 is the SEEMP Part II deadline under MARPOL Annex VI, Regulation 22.2. The Administrator encourages RMI-flagged ships subject to this requirement to submit their SEEMP Part II to their ROs as soon as possible before the year-end deadline to avoid non-compliance.
Liberia Maritime Authority published a Marine Operations Note, reminding all shipowners and operators that from 2019, each ship of 5,000 gross tonnage and above should collect fuel consumption data for 2019 and each subsequent calendar year or portion thereof.
MPA Singapore issued a circular urging shipowners to submit their Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan by the 1st of September 2018, before IMO’s requirement of fuel oil consumption data for vessels becomes mandatory in a global scale.
