Year: 2023
Language: English
Author: European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA)
Genre: Guide
Edition: 1.0
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 80
Description: The European Green Deal and the IMO initial and up-coming mid- and long-term Strategies for Greenhouse Gas reduction have sparked the development and implementation of technical solutions aiming at reducing the GHG emissions from shipping. The use of alternative zero carbon and sustainable fuels is increasing, as are solutions based on energy stored in batteries.
The IMO GENERIC GUIDELINES FOR DEVELOPING IMO GOAL-BASED STANDARDS MSC.1/Circ.1394/Rev.2 were taken as the basis for drawing-up this Guidance.
This non-mandatory Guidance refers to all ships engaged in international or domestic voyages, irrespective of their material of construction, for which a battery energy storage system based on lithium-ion technologies serves any of the following functions or their combination: main propulsion, auxiliary services, emergency propulsion, emergency services and/or other ancillary services.
