EMSA’s commissioned study on standards & rules for bunkering gas-fuelled ships has now been published on its website.
The study (carried out by Germanischer Lloyd) contains a comprehensive overview of the regulatory framework for the bunkering of gas-fuelled ships including identified gaps.
All relevant existing international and European rules with a possible impact on LNG bunkering have been described in detail. The study describes the current status of on-going ‘rule making’ and ‘standard development’ initiatives and indicates when the results of these initiatives can be expected, as well as which elements of the LNG bunkering chain they cover.
The study is part of EMSA’s contribution to the work of the European Commission on developing an EU standard for LNG bunkering as identified in the Commission’s ‘LNG for Shipping Action Plan’.
