Italian classification society RINA has amended its Guide for the Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI). The Guide is designed to help RINA technicians and shipowners with a common approach for the implementation of the upcoming energy efficiency MARPOL requirements, applicable to new and existing ships.
Various paragraphs throughout the whole document have been updated based on the IMO Resolutions adopted by MEPC 78 (June 2022) and aligned to IACS Rec. No.172 (June 2022) “EEXI Implementation Guidelines”. Also, a clarification on ship types for which Required and Attained EEXI is not applicable has been added.
References to in-service performance measurements as per MEPC.1/Circ.901 have been added as well, while the list of references in Paragraph 2.2 has been updated.
The amendments became effective from 01 August 2022.
