Joining forces to tackle biofouling

A new international effort initiated by environmental NGO Bellona and supported by Jotun and other companies in the maritime industry, aims to develop an industry standard for proactive hull cleaning to tackle the global biofouling issue. The build-up of marine life on ships’ hulls, known as biofouling, is an age-old problem for ship operators and...

Wärtsilä launches power limitation solutions for EEXI compliance

Wärtsilä has launched a new series of power limitation solutions that enable compliance with the IMO’s energy efficiency existing ship index (EEXI) regulation. The EEXI regulation comes into effect in 2023 and stipulates the minimum energy efficiency level for existing ships already in service. Wärtsilä’s new power limitation systems allow owners to meet this requirement,...

NAPA analysis shows EEXI would lead to a 6.6 per cent emissions cut

NAPA has shared the preliminary results of its new research that explores the potential effect of The Energy Efficiency Index for Existing Ships (EEXI) on the transportation capacity, total emissions and carbon intensity of the global bulker fleet. Adopted by MARPOL in June 2021, EEXI measures and restricts CO2 emissions per transport work, purely considering...
