In a presentation before industry groups, HEC’s Keith Michel discusses upcoming regulations and their potential impact on ship design and operations. He covers the EEDI, EEOI, SEEMP, and Market Based Measures. Details are also provided from a joint study undertaken by HEC and the American Bureau of Shipping to evaluate the Energy Efficiency Design Index for three different ship types. As a result of this study, two papers, MEPC 60/4/33 & MEPC 60/4/34, were reviewed by SNAME T&R Ad Hoc Panel 18 and submitted by SNAME to IMO through IMarEST for consideration at MEPC 60 in March 2010.
