International maritime shipping was appraised to have emitted 1046 million tonnes of CO2 in 2007, representing 3.3 per cent of the world global CO2 emission. It is foreseen to increase by factor two to three in 2050 in absence of reduction action (Buhaug, et al., 2009). In line with those issue, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has required implementing energy efficiency instruments included in Chapter 4 of MARPOL Annex VI. Hence, having Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all existing ships over 400 GT and attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new building of several ship types are mandatory from 1st January 2013.
In the national issue, based on the Peraturan Presiden RI No. 29/2012, Indonesia has formally ratified to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL Convention), Annexes III, IV, V and VI.
Therefore to address these challenges, BKI has released the newest service namely the issuance of the Statement of Verification (SoV) for EEDI and SEEMP, including EEOI. This service is robustly supported by the GreenPADMA software to help the calculation and verification for the index of EEDI and EEOI. This calculator software was mainly equipped by reliable features that have been updated by using the latest regulation either from IMO or IACS. Some examples for these features are: the software provides 12 (twelve) different ship types in accordance with the newest regulation requierement;it has specification to calculate power from conventional propulsion system, dual fuel engine, as well as diesel electric. In addition, the software also able to calculate the installation of innovative technology in ships which was expected to facilitate the application of the energy efficiency means.
By providing those new service, BKI as a state-owned classification society shows the commitment to continuously assist customers especially the shipping industries, in order to implement new regulations effectively through the development of support tools.
