Alternative Technologies for Complying with the Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/marinevess/harborcraft/documents/alttech.pdf.

 

The commercial harbor craft regulation offers several options for vessel owners/operators to comply with the regulation.  One option is remanufacture of in-use engines to meet the U.S. EPA current model year marine engine emission standards. The “Alternative Technologies for Complying with the Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation” list ARB approved technologies which can be used to comply with the commercial harbor craft regulation. 

 

The CHC regulation was adopted in November 2007 and became effective in January 2009.  Commercial harbor craft includes crew and supply vessels, commercial fishing vessels, ferries, excursion vessels, pilot boats, tow boats, tug boats, barges, dredges, and work boats.  The CHC regulation requires existing Tier 1 and earlier auxiliary and propulsion engines on in-use ferries, excursion vessels, tugboats, towboats, crew and supply vessels, barges, and dredges to meet United States Environmental Protection Agency Tier 2 or Tier 3 marine engine standards in effect at the time compliance is required.  This regulation is part of ARB’s ongoing effort to reduce diesel particulate matter in communities located near ports.  Additional information on the regulation is available at the following link:
