Two Greek companies are at the forefront of a new standard Lloyd’s Register is using to help shipowners and operators comply with the IMO’s SEEMP requirements on 1 January, 2013.
Two Greek companies, Maran Tankers and Capital Ship Management, have adopted the standard, ISO 50001, which provides an energy management framework to meet both SEEMP and the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI).
Stavros Meidanis, LRQA’s Marine Business Support Centre Manager who led the LRQA-created project, said: “It will help companies reduce their outlays as energy costs increase and seriously affect profitability. Another important benefit is that it will reduce carbon emissions.”
