EEXI AND CII – THE LEGISLATION
In June 2021 the IMO, during MEPC 76 has adopted amendments to MARPOL Annex VI, which require vessels over 400 GT (except those build in accordance to EEDI phase 2 and 3) to calculate their attained EEXI and if found non-compliant (higher value) with the required EEXI, to implement such modifications as necessary to meet the requirements.
The amendments will enter into force in November 2022 and vessels will be required to comply by their next scheduled survey – annual, intermediate or renewal – for the International Air Pollution Prevention Certificate (IAPPC) to be issued or endorsed, or the initial survey before the ship enters service for the International Energy Efficiency Certificate (IEEC) to be issued, whichever occurs first on or after 1 January 2023.
In addition to the amendments concerning the EEXI, the adopted changes also provide that applicable vessels (the same ship types as EEXI but of 5,000 GT and above and adding cruise ships using conventional propulsion) will need to demonstrate reductions of carbon intensity between January 2023 and 2030. The Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is a measure of how efficiently a ship transports goods or passengers and is given in grams of CO2 emitted per cargo-carrying capacity and nautical mile. The ship is then given an annual rating ranging from A to E, whereby the rating thresholds will become increasingly stringent towards 2030, therefore establishing a continuous verification process is of paramount importance.
EEXI CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Regulatory compliance and peace of mind with Tototheo Maritime’s EEXI packages
Our team of experts, Naval Architects and Marine Engineers will deliver comprehensive and compliant calculations and prepare the relevant documentation for Class approval. Having worked closely with several IACS members, our services are guaranteed to meet all regulatory requirements. We will apply the IMO’s comprehensive method for our calculations, thus ensuring full compliance.
Our measurements and calculations are done quickly and efficiently on the basis of an agreed timeline, so that you will have all the time you need to apply for verification and certification or to consider possible actions to be taken.
Should the attained EEXI not meet the required EEXI level, we will provide you with a substantiated report of possible recommended measures to be taken, in order to bring your attained EEXI to the desirable level. We will also support you in selecting the right option for your vessels and attend onboard for sea trials.
Following successful implementation, we will provide you with a complete reporting set, including Technical File with EEXI calculations, sea trial reports and any other applicable content.
We will also assist you with preparation of your Onboard Management Manual, where Power Limitation is the preferable option for compliance, we can support you with the onboard surveys and guide you through on attaining the relevant certification.
CII CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Reduction of operational carbon intensity from 2023 onwards
The yearly CII is calculated based on reported IMO DCS data and the ship is given a rating from A to E. For ships that achieve a D rating for three consecutive years or an E rating in a single year, a corrective action plan needs to be developed as part of the SEEMP and approved.
