Canna Ferry Gets Green Passport

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

The passenger and vehicle ferry Canna has become the first ship in Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd's fleet to be issued with a Lloyd’s Register Green Passport. This follows a training workshop for CMAL staff and a comprehensive audit process managed by Lloyd’s Register.
 
The Green Passport - officially termed an Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) - will accompany the ship throughout its operational life and will be reviewed by a member of the Lloyd's Register Group on an annual basis. Every five years the IHM will be renewed and re-certified and, at the end of the ship's life, it will help a ship recycling yard to formulate a safe and environmentally friendly way of decommissioning the ship.
 
The Canna is one of the first ships in the world to receive an IHM in accordance with the requirements of a new Ship Recycling Convention, following adoption by international states in May this year.  It will be some years before the Convention is ratified and enters into force, so CMAL are operating in advance of regulatory requirements.
 
All 30 ships in the CMAL fleet serving the Clyde and Hebrides ferry services in the west of Scotland will be put through the auditing process to secure their Green Passports, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to safeguarding the environment as well as early compliance with the new Convention.
