GL Issues First EEDI Certificate

Thursday, July 01, 2010

The first-ever Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) certification for a large container vessel owned and operated by Hapag-Lloyd has been conducted by Germanischer Lloyd (GL). The EEDI certificate is issued in accordance with the voluntary EEDI guidelines, MEPC.1/Circ.681 and 682 of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The attained EEDI value of the Hapag-Lloyd vessel is significantly better than the present average vessel of this size (based on Lloyds database), underlining the high energy efficiency of the vessel's design. This documents that members of the maritime industry are pro-actively pursuing measures to improve the energy efficiency of merchant vessels and, thus, reducing the CO2-emissions considerably.

As the individually attained EEDI for a ship represents the basic energy efficiency of a design, it can be used as a benchmark within an operator's fleet as well as for a comparison against a competitor's fleet. Benchmarking against the ship's operations is possible as well.
