MOL led the world in formulating the SEEMP
ahead of the IMO's adoption of requirements that SEEMP
should be provided on board from January 2013.
This phase is effectively building on SEEMP
to create a 'SEEMP
Plus' that puts this regulation into practice.
ABS stated that altering and centralising real-time environmental and energy data collection, this module makes it easy to track, trend, and report the information required for various regulation requirements, as well as Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMP
), ballast water management and MARPOL VI (fuel switching).
Ability to determine the energy efficiency of the vessel within the EEOI (Energy Efficiency Operational Index) encompassed in the SEEMP
(Ship Energy Efficiency Manage-ment Plan) guidelines.
On January 1, 2013, the International Maritime Organization s (IMO) Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP
) will move from concept to reality, and shipping companies around the world will be required to put into practice their individualized plans for reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Dr Bussow added, As you can only manage what you measure, the GL EmissionManager's comprehensive reporting capability allows owners and operators to set targets and measure target achievement - two basic requirements for the SEEMP
, for example.
On the other hand, the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP
) is mandatory as defined by IMO MEPC 213 (63).
