The impossible mission of improving operational efficiency year after year

23 March 2021

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) recently approved regulatory changes that will require ships to improve their CO2 emissions per transport work annually. In the best-case scenario, the new amendments may not be damaging to the industry’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. In the worst-case scenario, the ships’ CO2 emissions will rise, as more ships will be needed to obtain the required improvements.

BIMCO and RINA propose method to calculate energy efficiency of existing ships

10 March 2021

BIMCO and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) have identified a need for – and therefore proposed - an alternative method to determine an accurate reference speed in connection with a carbon reduction framework currently under development by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The aim is to secure that older ships also can obtain a reliable energy efficient design index (for existing ships), even if the original sea trial data from when the ship was delivered, is lost.

Industry backs United Nations $5 billion "moon-shot" programme to decarbonise shipping

10 March 2021

Responding to the UN Secretary-General’s call for “urgency and ambition” on climate change, the entire global shipping industry is giving “full and unequivocal” backing to a moon-shot proposal submitted by governments, to catalyse the complete decarbonisation of maritime transport by deployment at scale of zero-carbon ships within a decade.

Round Table Shipping Organisations Highlight Key Issues for the Maritime Industry

09 March 2021

Leaders of the Round Table of International Shipping Associations - BIMCO, INTERCARGO, International Chamber of Shipping and INTERTANKO - met virtually last week to debate key issues facing the maritime industry today. At the meeting, the associations affirmed the industry’s commitment to universal recognition for seafarers, the decarbonisation of shipping and addressing the threat to shipping from piracy in the Gulf of Guinea.

Shipping industry takes new step to protect marine environments

04 February 2021

Cleaning a ship’s submerged parts from barnacles and other growths, while the ship is in the water, can transfer invasive species to local marine environments unless it is properly cleaned and the debris is captured. To combat this problem, and to provide clarity and quality assurance to shipowners, ports and government authorities, BIMCO and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) have published the first industry standard on in-water cleaning of ships.

Efficiency drive

28 December 2020

In the December 2020/January 2021 issue of Bunkerspot, BIMCO’s Deputy Secretary General Lars Robert Pedersen considers what the new MARPOL Annex VI amendments on ships’ operational efficiency will mean for the industry. Read the article below:
