MARPOL ANNEX VI, SEEMP
Amendments to MARPOL Annex VI were adopted at the 62nd session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 62) held in July 2011 that make Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMP) mandatory from 1 January 2013 (Part I of SEEMP). Further, since 1 March 2018, in the case of a ship of 5,000 gross tonnage and above, the SEEMP shall have description of the methodology that will be used to collect the energy efficiency data and process that will be used to report the data to the ship’s administration (Part II of SEEMP). ClassNK Consulting Service Co., Ltd. (NKCS) offers service for establishing both part I and II of SEEMP by providing a standard form (SEEMP Template) following IMO Guidelines instead of applicant, particularly who has under tight schedule for managing newly bought ships etc.
SEEMP Part I
As introduced in the Guideline of Resolution MEPC 282(70), the most crucial part of SEEMP is determination of both the current status of ship energy usage and the expected improvement of ship energy efficiency. NKCS can give the applicant its smooth introduction by providing typical format, which covers full options of energy saving from onboard hardware to crew activity, well referring to the Guideline.
SEEMP Part II
For management of a ship of 5,000 gross tonnage and above, fuel oil consumption data collection plan which specifies methodology for collecting fuel oil consumption, distance travelled and hours underway shall have prior approval by ship’s Administration. Although fuel oil consumption data has been always collected by company ashore in general, seeing the fact that the Guideline of Resolution MEPC 282(70) requires strict measures for data quality control, NKCS offers service to provide typical format for data collection plan customized for each ship as the most efficient way of its preparation.
