IMO continues to contribute to the global fight against climate change, as a commitment to support the UN Sustainable Development Goal 13.
In line with those commitment, IMO has adopted mandatory measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases under IMO’s pollution prevention treaty (MARPOL) Annex VI Regulation, namely :
- Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)
- Energy Efficiency eXisting ship Index (EEXI)
- Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) Part I, II & III
- Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) IMO Data Collection System (DCS) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII)
Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)
What is EEDI ?
EEDI regulation applies to ships of 400 gross tonnage and above, engaged in international voyages.
Why does EEDI contribute to climate change?
This regulation is the most important technical measure and aims at promoting the use of more energy efficient (less polluting) equipment and engines.
How to apply for EEDI
The EEDI requires a minimum energy efficiency level per capacity mile tonne mile) for different ship type and size segments.
Survey and certification of the EEDI to be conducted in two stages: preliminary verification at the design stage and final verification at the sea trial.
The EEDI regulation only applies to the new ships falling into :
A ship for which the building contract is placed on or after 1 January 2013;or
In the absence of a building contract, a ship the keel of which is laid or which is at a similar stage of construction on or after 1 July 2013; or
A ship the delivery of which is on or after 1 July 2015.
Energy Efficiency eXisting ship Index (EEXI)
What is EEXI?
EEXI is similar Regulation with EEDI otherwise applied on existing ships.
How to apply EEDI
EEXI regulation applies to existing ships of 400 gross tonnage and above, engaged in international voyages. EEXI formulation is the same with EEDI, however the required EEXI is different. The attained EEXI of the ships shall be equal to or less than required EEXI as determined in MARPOL Annex VI.
Is it possible to use EEDI as compliance to EEXI
Yes, it is.
For ships having the approved EEDI technical file, this technical file may be accepted as the EEXI technical file.
What to do if the attained EEXI cannot satisfy the required EEXI?
Furthermore, if attained EEXI cannot satisfy the required EEXI, the ship should implement any countermeasures, such as haft Power Limitation (Shapoli), Engine Power Limitation (EPL), retrofitting energy saving devices, etc.
How is the certification of EEXI ?
The certification of EEXI will be revising and re-issued the International Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEE) will take place at the first annual, intermediate or renewal survey of the International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) Certificate on or after 1st January 2023 for ships delivered before 1st January 2023, or at the initial survey of IEE Certificate for ships delivered on or after 1st January 2023. The verification of EEXI shall be completed by the date of the survey.
Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP), IMO Data Collection System (DCS) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII)
What is SEEMP Part I ?
In accordance with MARPOL Annex VI, on or after 1 January 2013, ships of 400 gross tonnage and above should retain a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) Part I on board.
What are SEEMP Part II and IMO DCS ?
For ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above shall collect and report their fuel oil consumption data to the Administration or a Recognized Organization (RO) from year 2019. This Regulation namely IMO Data Collection System (DCS).
The ships subject to the IMO DCS are required to have a ship fuel oil consumption data collection plan (SEEMP Part II) and the plan should be approved by the Administration or an RO.
What is SEEMP Part III and CII Rating ?
CII Rating and SEEMP Part III apply to the following ships which are required to report IMO DCS. Which includes this following ship types : Bulk carrier, Gas carrier, Tanker, Containership, General cargo ship, Refrigerated cargo carrier, Combination carrier, Ro-ro cargo ship (vehicle carrier), Ro-ro cargo ship, Ro-ro passenger ship, LNG carrier and Cruise passenger ship.
The CII rating requirements enforced from year 2023, the ships are required to develop a SEEMP Part III on or before 31 December 2022, which should be approved by the Administration or a Recognized Organization (RO).
Requirements and implementation schedule
Current requirements :
- New building ships : approved EEDI Technical File (preliminary & final verification).
- All ships : Retaining the SEEMP Part I on board
- All Ships with 5,000 GT or above :
IMO DCS, retaining the SEEMP Part II and Confirmation of Compliance (CoC) SEEMP Part II on board.
Statement of Compliance SoC DCS / annual fuel oil consumption.
Requirements start from January 2023:
Existing Ships : EEXI Technical File
Note : EEDI Technical File can substitute the EEXI.
Survey and Certification will take place at the first annual, intermediate or renewal survey of the International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) Certificate on or after 1st January 2023.
IEEC Supplement will be revised and the IEEC will be re-issued.
Review of the "Ship operational carbon intensity plan (SEEMP Part III)" by the Administration or a RO. SEEMP Part III contains:
CII calculation methodology
Required CII over the next 3 years
Implementation plan for achieving the required CII and procedures for self-evaluation and improvement
retaining the SEEMP Part III and Confirmation of Compliance-Part III on board.
Aggregation of the collected data, calculation of the CII and the CII rating, and reporting to the Administration or an RO
Within three months after the end of each calendar year
The data from 2023 will be subject to the rating
For ships with CII rating on E in any year or a rating of D for 3 consecutive years, it is necessary to fill out a corrective action plan in the SEEMP III and obtain the approval by the Administration or an RO. Development and approval process shall within four months after the end of each calendar year
The Statement of Compliance (SoC) wil be issued by the Administration or an RO not later than five months after the end of each calendar year.
BKI is able to provide the above statutory services bound to the authorization from the flag states administration.
