Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP)

Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)

IMO has during MEPC 62 agreed on the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) and the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) which will be mandatory from January 2013 and from that date, ship owners will have to demonstrate the use of on-board fuel-reduction measures.

EEDI will be compulsory only for vessels with keel laying after January 2013 and suitable formulas will be developed in the future for existing vessels and other vessels not covered by EEDI.

Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) is mandatory for ships over 400 GT from the 1st of January 2013.
To assist ship owners with developing a SEEMP which reflects IMO Guidelines (Resolution MEPC.213(63). SEEMP establishes a mechanism for a shipping company and/or a ship to improve the energy efficiency of ship operations.

The SEEMP provides an approach for monitoring ship and fleet efficiency performance over time using, for example, the Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI) as a monitoring and/or benchmark tool.

The SEEMP urges the ship owner and operator at each stage of the operation of the ship to review and consider operational practices and technology upgrades to optimize the energy efficiency performance of a ship.

ERRIA as Ship Manager and Maritime consulting company, has more than 20 years experience managing many different types of Sea going vessels in several countries.
ERRIA is able to assist during the design phase of energy efficient ships and technical innovation by planning and implementing SEEMP and EEDI for a single vessel or fleet of vessels.
ERRIA has close contact and cooperation with Danish Maritime Authorities, Classification Societies (GL, BV, DNV and LR).

Focus on SEEMP and EEDI have to fulfill rules and regulation but also make sense in relation to saving fuel and thereby minimize cost, as well as it will be a major competitive factor  owner has to face in the future.
