Classification society RINA has issued Part III of the Guide for the Development of Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP): Ship Operational Carbon Intensity Plan. The Guide is intended to support the implementation of regulation 26.3 of MARPOL Annex VI requiring, for certain categories of ships of 5000 GT and above, on or before 01 January 2023, the development of a Ship Operational Carbon Intensity Plan.
Categories affected include bulk barriers, combination carriers, containerships, cruise passenger ships, gas carriers, general cargo ships, LNG carriers, refrigerated cargo carriers, ro-ro cargo ships, ro-ro cargo vehicle carriers, ro-ro passenger ships and tanker ships.
SEEMP Part I provides a generic approach to monitor ship and fleet efficiency performance over time and describes various energy efficiency measures to improve the ship’s energy efficiency performance and reduce carbon intensity.
SEEMP Part II provides a description of the methodologies that will be used to collect the fuel oil consumption (method of fuel collection, fuel type and quantity), distance travelled and hours underway.
SEEMP Part III specifically focuses on implementation plan on how the attained annual operational CII will be maintained below the required annual operational CII in the next three years. It also describes the required data for the calculation of CII and methodologies to obtain relevant data if not addressed in SEEMP Part II.
