Green technologies, Retrofits in








Dear Honored Readers of the Booklet, When we first started creating our Team of Companies, we never thought that the Greek LNG Retrofitting, Scrubber and Ballast Water Treatment Society would have such a high level of readiness and maturity. It has only taken 6 months to get more than 50 entities together and construct a solid business background, ready to face the today's and future needs of the Shipping Industry. We are living in interesting times in the field of energy and the environment. The Oil inventories are lowering; renewable resources of energy are not behind the scenes any longer; environmental challenges are of the greatest concern to the ship-owners due to the introduction of new legislation. A top executive of one of the most reputable Classification Societies said that this era has many similarities with the era of switching from Coal to Oil - I tend to agree. These are very challenging times and if we want to survive, we need to adjust. And as Greeks, we have to survive. We invite you all to have a good look at the booklet - you will find many interesting topics for discussion and valuable information about what we can do for you and for your business. We would like to thank you for your time and we remain at your disposal - please do not hesitate to express and share your thoughts with us.

On behalf of the Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners’ Association let me welcome everyone to this year’s Posidonia. As always this is a great opportunity to meet with old and new friends and discuss about ships, business and technology.

Charalampos Simantonis President of Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners Association

This year’s event is full of challenges for the Short Sea sector with environmental considerations featuring high on the agenda. Controls on sulphur content, filtering devices, alternative fuels, LNG networks, ballast water and sediments’ control are some of the main components of the survival problem each one of our members is obliged to resolve. The dates are close and the cost of a miscalculation potentially serious. We have participated in the initiative of NAFSOLP S.A. from the outset to create a first class support network in Piraeus which will assist our members - and everyone else interested - to conform to the new technological requirements. This will in fact be the first time that the Greek shipping cluster gets together in a meaningful and consistent manner. We are here to assist the network, as long as the network is here support us. I wish every success in this endeavor, for benefit of Greek economy and Shipping. I am taking this opportunity to wish you all an enjoyable stay.



Initiatives to create new technology-based infrastructures in the country are very valuable, especially during the current times of severe economic recession. Such ventures should be embraced by the private sector; yet, to achieve growth and reach the stage of ripping the first benefits, governmental support is vital. This could be expressed through modernization of the institutional framework of the country and also by offering, especially during the first critical steps, effective guidance towards sources of funding. It is an unpleasant fact that, the world leading Greek shipping is very little correlated with services provided through the country’s technological infrastructures. As a matter of fact, the employment level and the wealth that could have been enjoyed by the local communities, should these activities existed, have not been realized. The new environmental standards set on international shipping have created several opportunities for the provision of novel services. This idea is well captured by the current initiative, focusing on services that could render existing ships more efficient in terms of both environmental friendliness and profitability. One case is the retrofitting of engine rooms enabling the shipowners to continue operating their ships profitably. If such a facility could be established in competitive terms within the shipbuilding/shiprepairing area of the Greater Piraeus Area, this would be a great success for the country. It would revitalize and open new horizons in an area that has been very severely, and I think undeservedly, hit from stagnation and unemployment. The persons and their companies or organizations who, under the guidance of NAFSOLP S.A., have contributed to the startup of this demanding and pioneering collaborative effort, should be highly praised. It is a common belief amongst all who are involved with maritime technology in Greece that, the country is host to an exceptional pool of scientific knowledge, technical skills and talent. Ship retrofitting for the use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as fuel; the installation of scrubbers for removing sulphur oxides and particles from the engine exhausts emitted to the atmosphere; and also the installation of ballast water treatment systems for obliterating eco-system damaging micro-organisms; these are all topics of high importance for the shipping community. At the same time, the local resource of personnel offers confidence that the installation of such systems can be skillfully and efficiently managed. The current directory summarizes the technical resources that are locally available for the successful implementation of these efforts and facilitates the creation of links with prospective investors, governmental bodies and potential customers. I wish your important initiative to bring positive results for the benefit of the local economy and society.

It is well known to the Hellenic Shipping Community that the possibilities/capabilities of the GreaterPiraeus area for retrofitting projects of the existing vesselsare huge. A large number of projects, for different types and sizes of merchant vessels, are already completed successfully there. It is also necessary for the Hellenic Shipping Community and its Technical Personnel to use the accumulated (since the beginning of the 1950’s) technical experience of the human resources of the same area. Finally, there is a great necessity for the Hellenic Shipping Community to respond effectively and promptly to the various challenges of our days and especially of: Stavros Daniolos Vice President, On behalf of the MARTECMA Council

• improving the onboard energy efficiency and install more effective energy saving devices • incorporating much more environmentally friendly equipment to protect effectively the marine environment • providing experience and knowledge for the design and construction of safer and more efficient merchant vessels It is therefore necessary for the established Scientific and Professional Organizations to assist effectively in order to increase the relevant synergy and collaboration between the various Hellenic Manufacturers/Suppliers and new occupation positions to be created in our country.


The initiative of NAFSOLP S.A. is towards the right direction, by taking into account that it is in full compliance with all the above pre-requisites and conditions and therefore should be properly and promptly assisted by all relevant scientific and professional Organizations/Institutions /Unions, etc. MARTECMA Council would like to congratulate NAFSOLP S.A. and especially those experts who have had the good idea and initiative to compose and publish this bulletin/manual, which contains records and reference data for a large number of Makers/Suppliers/Consultants/ Classification Societies/Entities, who will be involved in future retrofitting projects for a large number of Hellenic merchant vessels. MARTECMA Council will inform its Members (Technical Directors of almost 220 Hellenic Shipping Companies) accordingly, and it will invite them to: • participate in the relevant presentations/events that will be organized in the future by the Organizing / Steering Committee of this project • use this bulletin/manual whenever related projects are scheduled in the future in the Greater Piraeus Area Last but not least, MARTECMA Council wishes the best to the efforts of the Organizing/Steering Committee of this project, and kindly asks to be promptly informed in the future for any related news and developments, which will be distributed to its members by placing relevant posts in the MARTECMA website.

It also applies to LNG to CNG facilities with LNG storage in ASME containers of 70,000 gal (265 m3) or less. NFPA 59A- Standard for the Production, Handling and Storage of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) 2013 edition This National Fire Protection Association standard applies to the location, design, construction, maintenance and operation of all facilities that liquefy, store, vaporise and handle natural gas. It also deals with the training of personnel involved with LNG.


IMO draft IGF Code The purpose of this Code is to provide an international standard for ships that are not covered by the IGC Code, but that are operating with gas or low flashpoint liquids as fuel. The Code provides mandatory criteria for the arrangement and installation of machinery, equipment and systems to minimize the risk to the ship, its crew and the environment. IMO IGC Code This Code provides an international standard for the safe carriage, by sea in bulk, of liquefied gases and certain other substances. Through consideration of the products carried, it prescribes the design and construction standards of the ships involved and the equipment they should carry to minimize risk to the ship, its crew and to the environment. IMO RESOLUTION MSC.285(86) Interim Guidelines on Safety for Natural Gas - Fuelled Engine Installations in Ships These Interim Guidelines have been developed to provide an international standard for ships, other than vessels covered by the IGC Code, with natural gas-fuelled engine installations. The goal of these Interim Guidelines is to provide criteria for the arrangement and installation of machinery for propulsion and auxiliary purposes, using natural gas as fuel, which will have an equivalent level of integrity in terms of safety, reliability and dependability as that which can be achieved with a new and comparable conventional oil-fuelled main and auxiliary machinery.

LNG aS a maRINE fuEL Introduction and reasons for using LNG as fuel


Due to the substantial increase in oil prices as a result of growing consumption, the rate of discovery of new oil fields being unlikely to meet the growing demand as well as the greater social awareness of the marine industry’s impact on the environment, new methods for improving eďŹƒciency and reducing its environmental impact are being exlpored.


rom January1st 2015, new regulations on the sulphur content of fuel for shipping in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the English Channel will come in force. Accordingly, the sulphur content has to be decreased from1.0 % to 0.1 %, setting the competitiveness of short sea shipping under pressure compared with land-based transport and especially trucks. In addition to reduced sulphur fuels, emmisions after treatment system and rewnewable sources of energy such as wind or solar power, alternative fuels are becoming more feasible. Using natural gas as fuel is not a novel concept. It has been used in homes and indusrty for heating and cooking and also used for the production of power in land based power generation plants. There has been an increase in the use of natural gas as a clean fuel within the automotive industry on buses and passenger vehicles.


The benefits and drivers for switching to using natural gas as a fuel on board ships can be broadly categorised into the economic reasons and environmental reasons (the latter driven by legislation). REGuLAToRY FRAMEWoRK Gas has been used as a fuel on LNG carriers that utilize the cargo tanks boil off for a long time. The design of these gas supply systems is governed by Ch. 16 of the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC code). Currently Resolution MSC 285 (86) “Interim Guidelines on Safety for Natural Gas-Fuelled Engine Installations in Ships” (2009) is the only official guidance released by IMO for the use of low flash point fuels on other ship types. A new statutory code for these systems is currently under development by the IMO-the International Code for Ships using Gas or other Low Flash-Point Fuels (IGF Code). An important step forward for the implementation of LNG as a marine fuel that can be used as a reference point in the regulatory process, has been the draft ISO TS document “Guidelines for systems and installations for supply of LNG as a fuel to ships”, which was released in June 2013. CHALLENGES IN uSING LNG The use of LNG on other ship types is a development that has been growing at an accelerated pace for the last decade. The current world fleet of LNG powered vessels (not counting LNG carriers that use boil off from cargo as fuel) is a small but rapidly growing sector. There are currently 33 vessels in service, 70% of which were delivered in the last three years and there are currently more than 20 projects at various stages with planned delivery over the next two years. The greatest unkown currently with the implementation of LNG as a fuel on a worldwide basis is the provi-

sion of LNG bunkering facilities and the costs of LNG at the quay side. Morever lacks the absence of prescriptive rule requirements has been one of the great barriers at the initial stage. Regulatory framework is expected to strengthen both the supply and demand side for natural gas. Risk assessment is also a critical factor for the wide application of LNG as marine fuel.It aims to supplement prescriptive requirements and comprises of a complicated methodology for technology qualification that should address design arrangements of the asset in question (whether is a ship or a bunkering station), the piping arrangements, the structural design arrangements of LNG tanks, ventilation, isolation of the tank room , operational as well as emergency response procedures. Under the gaps for setting up a new supply chain for LNG as marine fuel, the paramount importance of the human factor must be acknowledged. Crew training and familiarisation with new complex operational requirements should be included in the planning process of wider adoption. Last but not least quantity and quality issues on the LNG bunkering process should not be overlooked as they could pose significant commercial barriers to its wider use. In the last few years we have come a long way in addressing all the aforementioned challenges and we can remain optimistic that LNG as fuel will be feasible in the forthcoming years. ENVIRoNMENTAL DRIVERS FoR CHANGE The environmental drive to consider alterantive fuel or exhaust gas cleaning options is largely dependent on the areas where vessels are trading. The emissions limits of trading in Emissions Control Areas (ECAs) are significantly lower (Figure 1) than the limits elsewhere. In August 2012 the global coverage of ECAs was greatly expanded by the addition of the North American ECA extending up to 200 miles from the coast.




Emissions are not only controlled by ECA’s; since EU Directive 2005/33 EC came into force in January 2010, Eu regulations require 0.1% Sulphur in EU ports and inland waterways. Moreover, there are further regional controls such as the Antarctic ban on heavy grade fuel oil, which will only become tighter as administations across the world focus on the reduction of emissions. Engines operating on liquid hydrocarbon fuels such as Heavy fuel oil (HFO) and Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) will require low sulphur bunkers or additional abatement technologies, in order to meet future emissions control legislation. LNG is chemically relatively simple, compared to fuels like HFO and MDO/MGO, and as a result produces fewer harmful combustion by-products. Conventional diesel engines running on traditional fuels require some form of exhaust after-treatment to reduce their production in Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). LNG fuelled engines with optimised combustion timing can achieve NOx emissions up to 90% lower than oil fuel engines. LNG that has undergone processing emits insignificant levels of Sulphur Oxides (SOx) to the environment. LNG as a fuel also reduces the emission of carbon dioxide by around 20%. The reduced emission achieved when using LNG as a fuel will enable LNG

fuelled ships to meet present and planned environmental air pollution legislation. ECoNoMIC DRIVERS FoR CHANGE The initial capital investment needed to succesfully use liquid natural gas as a bunkered fuel has often discouraged ship designers and owners, however the future economic savings are making LNG a more feasible option. Longer term oil prices are expected to continue to increase irrespective of the political situation or state or economic growth. The price of natural gas is expected to remain stable. It is possible in the future, with the stricter phases of EEDI (Energy EďŹƒciency Index) and an increasing number of the Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA) and Emission Control Areas (ECA), a ships performance on environmental factors and ability to operate in these controlled areas without the need to use expensive low sulphur fuels will have a greater influence on commercial matters. It is difficult to accurately predict global LNG bunker costs as there is not yet a mature supply network in pace, comparison though to the supply receipts from electricity generating plants in the US suggests that LNG may be more stable and lower priced than heavy fuel oil over the long term.


ENERGy EffICIENCy aNd GREEN HouSE GaS EmISSIoNS Regulatory Framework


nvironmental regulation is being formulated at a rapid pace and energy costs are rising. Owners need to ensure their asset(s) is compliant, efficient and cost-effective, in accordance with the regulatory landscape and the market conditions. Below is a brief presentation of Green House Gas emissions legislation as well as technical capability in future proofing owner’s investment. The technical and operational measures adopted by the IMO for reducing GHGs from international shipping are

the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and the Shipboard Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP). EEDI constitutes a uniform approach to calculation of a ship’s energy efficiency during the design and build of new ships and will be used to control CO2 levels emitted for future new ships by encouraging improvements in ship design. Reflecting the cargo carrying capacity (amount of CO2 generated per tonne-mile), new ships will be required to have an Attained EEDI (i.e. actual verifiable values) that is equal to or less than the Required EEDI values (i.e. determined using Reference Lines established by the IMO using ships data from the




world fleet). Gradual improvements in ship design shall be fostered in the forthcoming decades where more energy efficient designs will be available. The SEEMP is a management manual that can assist shipowners in monitoring and reducing energy consumption through specific energy improvement measures, including best practice. Each SEEMP contains ship-specific energy improvement measures identified by the shipowner and should be structured using a simple ‘’Plan’’ – ‘’Do’’ – ‘’Check’’ – ‘’Act’’ approach that is applied continuously and includes goals where appropriate. A well-planned and documented SEEMP, mandatory onboard all ships >400 GT FROM 1 January 2013 onwards, will require in most cases shore-based staff to manage the SEEMP process proactively in order to prevent increased workload and excessive paperwork for crew on board. There is a belief however that these measures may not be sufficient to achieve the level of reduction in global GHG emissions by 80% by 2050 as agreed at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The adoption of two additional options is being thus discussed to complement the existing regulatory framework in place. In this respect, one scenario talks about the application of energy efficiency measures on existing ships and the second options discusses the introduction of Market based measures (MBM) in the form of economic incentives to reduce emissions. Political consensus is yet to be concluded on the above; mainly due to the challenge in preserving the balance between the IMO principle of ‘’equal treatment for all ships worldwide’’ and the UNFCCC principle of the Common but differentiated responsibility (CBDR) that distinguishes between developed (Annex I) and developing countries (non-Annex I) in their responsibility to reduce their GHG emissions. Another group of regulators and stakeholders,

particularly in the EU region, advocate the solution of establishing a monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) scheme for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. An MRV scheme is endeavoured to provide a standard framework for the production of a GHG emissions inventory. An MRV scheme can be applied as a mandatory tool; a prevailing option in the EU for the near future, or can be applied voluntarily across a part of the industry that will develop the GHG inventory. The EU can make use of the ‘’Subsidiarity Principle’’, according to which, in the absence of an international agreement for the climate change and the abatement of GHG emissions, further actions would be undertaken at establishing a scheme at a regional level. Establishing an MRV framework would indirectly lead the industry to the employment of MBMs. The cornerstone around which an MRV scheme can be cemented looks at the monitoring of fuel data to address the cargo carried, sea conditions, speed and trim. The extent of data monitoring will define the cost and complexity of such a potential MRV scheme in the EU. Issues remain to be resolved also in terms of the frequency of data monitoring and the means of verification (bunker delivery notes, fuel flow meters, direct emissions monitoring methods, bunkers fuel measurement onboard).

How can we help ENERGY EFFICIENCY In the current regulatory context exploring all possibilities in future proofing existing vessels seems like a must. It is furthermore true that with current technology capability and the financials derived by the current level of fuel prices a lot can be done. Using state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, supported by traditional model testing,


23 helps owners optimise the hull form of their asset(s), appendages and superstructure to reduce drag and resistance, and optimise the propeller, rudder and wake field to increase propulsive efficiency, including the addition of energy-saving devices. Another area of strong competency is energy configuration. Within this field, experts assess the efficiency of the design’s engine configuration by comparing it to alternative configurations for each of the different engine operating conditions. Moving on to in-service vessels, Ship Energy Evaluation (SEE) and operational advisory services help assess energy performance and identify achievable and costeffective opportunities for attaining better energy efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. Also on the field of trim optimisation, the optimum trim for a ship’s range of speed and draughts can be identified; thus leading to reduced hull resistance and potential fuel savings averaging between 2 and 5%. ENVIRoNMENTAL TRAINING Tailored environmental training courses help you understand regulatory obligations and improve envi-

ronmental performance. The variety of the issues addressed is quite wide including but not limited to marine environmental awareness, energy management, ballast water management, exhaust gas treatment technology and others. FuRTHER ENVIRoNMENTAL SoLuTIoNS Evaluating risks and identifying solutions is another capability offered by our Technical Investigations Services. We provide customised solutions through engineering assessment and evaluation from concept to operation. With experience across the many disciplines involved, including marine, mechanical, electrical and naval architectural engineering, our specialist engineers and naval architects are able to draw upon our extensive range of in-service testing and measurement equipment utilising state-of-the- art measurement techniques and analytical tools; thus providing ship managers with tailored solutions. Such analysis and investigation can also focus on the wide range of equipment and technology offered for fitting onboard in the Piraeus shipping cluster area.



ExHauSt tREatmENt tECHNoLoGy oN SHIPS Marine industry develops new ways to become more efficient and cost effective. International legislation, through the new regulations which are contained in MARPoL Convection Annex IV, indicates the reduction of the exhaust emissions (Sox, Nox, PM, Co2) and introduces the EEDI and SEEMP for the new building ships, guiding the marine world to the environment friendly technologies. Furthermore, the expansion of the ECAs (Emissions Control Areas) in more areas of the planet by adopting stringent limits for the emissions concentrations, widows the implementation of new efficient technologies a necessity.


xhaust gas treatment technology is a well known technology on land, commonly used in industries to reduce the emissions. In general, this technology doesn’t demand any modification in the engine room or to the machinery components, and its installation is independent by the type of diesel fuel that is consumed by the engine. The systems of the exhaust gas treatment technologies, depending on the emission that they reduce, are shown in Figure 1.

Scrubbers are mainly used for the reduction of SOx in the exhaust gas, and secondarily in the reduction of PM. The principle of this technology is the injection of a solution in the exhaust gas so as to remove up to 99% of sulfur oxides contained in the exhaust gases. The quantity of water that will be injected to the exhaust gas depends on the volume of the exhaust flow, the temperature of the exhaust gas and the sulfur content of the used fuel.


Figure 1: Exhaust gas treatment systems

Open loop wet scrubbers use seawater as a scrubbing substance. Quantities of the required substance depend on the alkalinity of the sea. After the removal of SOx, the seawater shall be treated and monitored for its pH level, concentration and temperature. Water treatment arrangement includes oil and soot separators and filters, removing any residuals and particles in the working fluid. The collected ‘black’ water is stored in a sludge tank while the rest fluid is discharged back to the sea. For the compliance of the MEPC limits, additional amounts of pure seawater are required to be mixed with the fluid before the discharge, especially when the ship is still. Closed loop wet scrubbers require fresh water in which sodium hydroxide (NaOH), known as alkali, is added for the neutralization of SOx. Both substances are stored in different storage tanks. The pH of the mixture that will be injected to the exhaust gas is controlled by the con-

centration of alkali. Usually the percentage of the contained NaOH is 50%. Due to the recirculation of the scrubbing mean, the water needs to be cooled down before it is injected back again into the scrubber device. When the water has removed the sulfur oxides, the solution passes through a filter or a water treatment device which separates the ‘black’ water and stores it to the sludge or holding tank. The open loop wet scrubber technology has the ability to work with seawater, without using any consumable, necessitating the use of corrosion resistant materials for the system. On the other hand, closed loop scrubbers require additional tanks for the storage of the consumable (NaOH) and the fresh water. Water losses due to the evaporation and cooling down arrangements by using seawater shall be taken into account as well. In both technologies the flue gas shall be cooled at a temperature above the saturation point, to avoid any corrosion




effect in the exhaust manifold and sufficient fans shall be provided to ensure the proper backpressure of the flue gas. A combination of these technologies is the hybrid system with the advantages and disadvantages of both systems. The open loop is used when the ship is operating in the open sea and when the ship approaches harbors or enters in ECA zones, the closed loop is activated. Finally, a new method which uses ultra low frequency waves to treat water before it will be injected in the exhaust gas, claims to reduce CO2 and NOx emissions in addition, at 77% and 66% respectively. In dry scrubber technology, lime based materials such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3), burnt lime (CaO) or hydrated lime (Ca(OH)2) are used for the desulfuriza-

tion of the flue gas. When the calcium hydroxide reacts with the sulfur oxides, calcium sulfate (gypsum) is produced and at least 80% of the SOx is removed. The only sufficient solution for marine application is the use of calcium hydroxide granulates in cross-flow with the exhaust gas. Monitoring of the SOx concentration in the exhaust gas indicates when granulates have lost their reaction ability. Then, the new material is fed in from above, while the saturated granulates are removed from below. The operating temperature of dry scrubber is higher than the one of the wet technology (above 240oC), allowing the use of an additional SCR device downstream of the scrubber without the use of a reheater. Furthermore, this technology requires less energy consumption and the products of


the reaction (gypsum) can be used in industry unlike wet scrubber technology where the sludge tanks can only be discharged. The main disadvantage of this method is the increased volume and weight required on ship. Apart from the exhaust treatment devices for the reduction of SOx emission, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) devices can be used for the conversion of NOx into harmless N2 and H2O. In this method, a gaseous substitute such as anhydrous ammonia, aqueous ammonia or urea is injected in the stream of the exhaust gas flow before the catalyst. Therefore, the produced ammonia is collected by the catalyst. Besides the ammonia, a hydrocarbon catalytic reduction method can be used, with reduced eďŹƒciency in NOx removal. SCR method is capable of removing 70%-95% of the produced NOx. The catalyst geometry depends on the exhaust gas conditions and the operating temperature of the procedure shall be between 300oC and 500oC. The main considerations for the installation of exhaust treatment systems are the cost of the investment, the operating materials and consumables, the loss of the ship’s load capacity and propulsion system capacity, the stability of the ship depending on the location that this system will be installed and the local and global strength of the ship. In conclusion, exhaust gas treatment technology is one of the most promising methods for the reduction of the exhaust emissions on ships without the need for any modification in the engine compartment or to the consumed fuel.

The Problem

The Response

Since the introduction of steel ships around 120 years ago, water has been used as ballast to stabilize ships at sea. Ballast water is pumped-in to maintain safe and efficient operating conditions throughout a voyage. on the other hand, it may pose serious ecological, economic and health problems due to the multitude of marine species carried in ships’ ballast water. The transferred species may survive to establish a reproductive population in the host environment, becoming invasive, out-competing native species and multiplying into pest proportions.

Preventing the transfer of invasive species and coordinating a timely and effective response to invasions requires cooperation and collaboration among governments, economic sectors, non- governmental organizations. After more than 14 years of complex negotiations between IMO Member States, the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM Convention) was adopted by consensus at a Diplomatic Conference held at IMO Headquarters in London on 13 February 2004. The Convention will enter into force 12 months after ratification by 30 States, representing 35 per cent of world merchant shipping tonnage. Currently (as of 10/02/2014), 38 States have ratified the Convention, representing 30.38% of world merchant shipping tonnage with Argentina, Belgium and Germany due to submit their instruments of ratification in the near future. Application The BWM Convention will apply to ships flying the flag of a Party except: 1. ships not designed or constructed to carry ballast water; 2. ships operating exclusively in waters under the jurisdiction of a Party, unless the party determines


that the discharge of ballast water from such ships would impair or damage their environment; 3. warships, naval auxiliary or other ships owned or operated by a Party; 4. ships with permanent ballast water not subject to discharge. Exemptions from the management of ballast water may be granted to ships on voyages between specified ports or operated exclusively between specified ports or locations when ballast water is not mixed other than between these ports or locations. These exemptions shall be effective for a period not exceeding five years, subject to intermediate review. Moreover, BWM.2 /Circ.32, dated 8 August 2011, specifies that provisions of the Convention are not applicable to the water in the hopper area of hopper dredgers.

BWM Requirements Ships to which the Convention applies will be required to carry on board the following: 1. a “Ballast Water Management Plan” approved by the Administration, detailing safety procedures and actions to be taken to implement the ballast water management requirements; 2. a “Ballast Water Record Book” for the recording of each operation concerning ballast water management; 3. an “International Ballast Water Management Certificate” (for ships of 400 gross tonnage and above excluding floating platforms, FSUs and FPSOs) with a five year validity and subject to annual, intermediate and renewal surveys. BWM Standards For the management of ballast water, two main standards are defined by the Convention: D1: Ships exchange ballast water by the pumping



methods. The sequential, the flow through (the pumping procedure will be carried out three times to ensure an efficiency of 95% volumetric exchange) and the dilution method. D2: allowable limits on viable organisms in ballast water to be discharged, defined as maximum number and size per cubic meter (less than 10 viable organisms per cubic meter greater than or equal to 50 micrometers in minimum dimension and less than 10 viable organisms per milliliter less than 50 micrometers in minimum dimension and greater than or equal to 10 micrometers in minimum dimension).


IMO defines ballast water treatment equipment as “the equipment which mechanically, physically, chemically or biologically processes either singularly or in combination to remove, render harmless or avoid the uptake or discharge of harmful organisms or pathogens. Ballast water treatment equipment may operate at the uptake or discharge of ballast water, during the

voyage, or at a combination of these events.” There are two generic types of process technology used in ballast water treatment: 1. Solid-liquid separation and 2. Disinfection. The following figure 1 provides a summary of treatment options.

Ballast water management, in compliance with the D-2 standard, will be performed by type approved systems. A summary of the approval pathway for ballast water treatment systems can be found in the following Figure 2.

Detailed Presentation of each Company










LNG and Alternative Fuels Lloyd’s Register (LR) has been at the forefront of marine gas developments from the very beginning. We are working to ensure that shipowners, ship designers, shipbuilders, equipment manufacturers and technology developers can meet safety and performance goals by developing an approach that involves both prescriptive (rule-based) and risk-based approaches for when there are no rules. We look at what’s novel in designing gas-fuelled ships and we developed rules that will now evolve as solutions based on a thorough evaluation of risk which eventually can support rule-based solutions. This is an ongoing process of constant improvement following proven performance. At any time LR is running dozens of projects looking at and evaluating new technology. This experience helps develop new rules as new technologies are validated through our risk guidance and understanding of hazards combined with LR’s leading risk methodology using HAZIDS, chosen qualitative/quantitative risk assessments and HAZOPS. The new rules help the industry make decisions about gas-fuelled designs. The main hazards to be addressed are related to: • gas in non-gas carrier type ships • gas fuel tank location • vapour management • bunkering. Lloyd’s Register is monitoring closely the Alternative Fuels developments on regional level as well, with Poseidon MED project undertaken in Greece, Cyprus and Italy. Scrubbers, Emissions Abatement Acknowledging the critical role that scrubbers and other abatement technologies will play in meeting the emissions compliance challenges, LR has developed a new chapter of Rules specifically for the ECAs. We are also heavily involved in a number of relevant projects at various stages of technical maturity. We are at the position to provide our clients with high level consultancy services covering technical, environmental and feasibility aspects as far as air emissions abatement technology is concerned. Energy Efficiency At LR, we have a unique set of capabilities in the area of energy efficiency. This means we can develop individual solutions appropriate to any stage of a vessel’s lifecycle. We understand that the drivers behind energy efficiency are not the same for everyone. This is why we don’t have a ‘one size fits all’ suite of products but a promise to deliver solutions designed with you in mind. Ship performance and efficiency is a process, not an event. This process starts at the earliest stage of establishing fleet requirements and continues through the life of the ship. Our capability and solutions support our clients at each of the following four stages: techno-commercial evaluation, concept design, Energy Efficiency Design Optimisation, Energy Efficiency Operational Optimisation. At the earliest pre-contract stage, we can help you optimise your design to achieve a ship which is energy efficient and cost-effective. Design optimisation takes place through the application of thorough computational fluid dynamics analysis. Using state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, supported by traditional model testing, LR helps owners optimise the hull form of their asset(s), appendages and superstructure to reduce drag and resistance, and optimise the propeller, rudder and wake field to increase propulsive efficiency, including the addition of energy-saving devices. Another area where LR demonstrates strong competency is energy configuration. Within this field, experts assess the efficiency of the design’s engine configuration by comparing it to alternative configurations for each of the different engine operating conditions. Moving on to in-service vessels, Ship Energy Evaluation (SEE) and operational advisory services help assess energy performance and identify achievable and cost-effective opportunities for attaining better energy efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. Also on the field of trim optimisation, the optimum trim for a ship’s range of speed and draughts can be identified; thus leading to reduced hull resistance and potential fuel savings averaging between 2 and 5%. Ballast Water Treatment Our technical knowledge and experience working with the different technologies available and alternative options being developed ensure that ballast water management solutions are tailored to your ships’ operational requirements. In addition, our in-depth knowledge on the legislative and operational aspects of ballast water management, our industry leading publications and our classification and statutory expertise, means our advice is up-to-date appropriate for your situation. We can help you prepare for complying with the BWM Convention and other national requirements through advice on your obligations, as well as planning, selection and execution of the ballast water management solution that minimises your investment risk and is right for you. In addition, we recognise the importance of ensuring that you have the necessary knowledge ahead of compliance which is why our training courses are tailored to your situation and we provide guidance which is freely available on our website.
