INTERTANKO Guide to Reducing Emissions

Monday, December 07, 2009

INTERTANKO is publishing this week its new Guide for a Tanker Energy Efficiency Management Plan (TEEMP). This moves forward in practical terms the IMO process to reduce actual GHG emissions from shipping by assisting operators to implement a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan as recommended by IMO Circular MEPC.1/Circ.683.

This Guide is based on INTERTANKO best practice, using information and experience from members with more than 700 tankers. It is a practical tool, covering a comprehensive monitoring, recording and reporting of ship performance which will be used by tanker operators as they enhance the energy efficiency and the emissions performance of their ships by routinely applying operational measures to improve fuel efficiency.

The TEEMP involves inter alia voyage planning; optimizing machinery; hull resistance management; cargo handling; and the control of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from the cargo.
