BIMCO's Ashok Srinivasan will be speaking about the link between advanced hull coatings, fuel savings and CO2 emissions reduction for vessels of different types, trading patterns and operating speeds over the lifetime of the vessel. In particular, he will be speaking about the industry standard for in-water cleaning with capture.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) recently approved regulatory changes that will require ships to improve their CO2 emissions per transport work annually. In the best-case scenario, the new amendments may not be damaging to the industry’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. In the worst-case scenario, the ships’ CO2 emissions will rise, as more ships will be needed to obtain the required improvements.

BIMCO and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) have identified a need for – and therefore proposed - an alternative method to determine an accurate reference speed in connection with a carbon reduction framework currently under development by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The aim is to secure that older ships also can obtain a reliable energy efficient design index (for existing ships), even if the original sea trial data from when the ship was delivered, is lost.
