China: CCS issues SEEMP Part III compliance certs for 26 HKMW-operated VLOCs

05 Sep 2022

China Classification Society (CCS) on Friday (26 August) issued certificates of compliance to Hong Kong Ming Wah Shipping Co., Ltd. (HKMW) for adherence to Part III of the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP Part III). 

HKMW is the first shipping company to obtain the CCS SEEMP-III appraisal for the 26 very large ore carriers (VLOC) it operates.

With the appraisal, Mr. Jinti Zhang, General Manager of HKMW said the firm will strengthen to consolidate global climate governance, China’s ‘dual carbon goals’ and promote the decarbonisation transformation of the maritime industry. 

“HKMW will actively develop applications of new technology and intellectualisation on ships and significant results have been achieved in the decarbonisation of the fleet based on the application of energy saving  and intelligent digital technology,” he said during a ceremony for the certificate handover.

At the event, CCS and HKMW agreed to continue to strengthen cooperation and research on improving ship energy efficiency, optimising ship navigation routes, enhancing fleet competitiveness, improving ship streamline, alternative fuel applications, and technological breakthroughs in low-carbon emission ships.

Following the most recent requirements on energy efficiency which regulated by Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 78) of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) June 2022, CCS developed SEEMP PART III automatic programming function and CII calculation  rating function module in the ship energy efficiency management system to meet the latest requirements. 

With this newly added function which is user friendly and highly efficient, HKMW and CCS Hong Kong Branch worked closely together for SEEMP-III compliance to 26 VLOCs operated by HKMW.
