Classification society DNV presented Arcadia Shipmanagement Co Ltd. with a certificate recognizing their vessel Aegean Myth as the first vessel globally to have a SEEMP III manual, according to DNV on Tuesday (5 July). 

The Ship Operational Carbon Intensity Plan or SEEMP Part III, is part of IMO’s strategy to reduce shipping’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and a verified SEEMP Part III must be kept on board from 1 January 2023.

The SEEMP Part III, or Ship Operational Carbon Intensity Plan, was finalized with the latest amendments to MARPOL Annex VI and the associated Guidelines at MEPC 78 last month. 

It requires ship owners and operators to monitor, report and verify CO2 emissions annually for all vessels larger than 5,000 GT. 

It is a ship-specific document, a dynamic and regularly updated three-year implementation plan describing how a vessel will achieve the required Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) over the next three years, with yearly targets, procedures for self-evaluation and improvement, and a corrective action plan in case of an inferior rating.

“We are very proud to be the first shipping company to have received approval by the world’s leading classification society, DNV, for our fleet’s SEEMP Part III, starting with our Aegean Myth vessel,” said Mr. Dimitrios Mattheou, CEO of Arcadia Shipmanagement Co Ltd. 

“At Arcadia we are committed to providing safe, sustainable, and reliable transportation of oil by sea. Initiatives like this broaden the values of safety and environmental excellence by implementing effective management systems to comply with incoming regulations to consistently achieve reliable and environmental incident-free performance. This approval by DNV marks the first milestone for smooth compliance with IMO’s requirements. We would also like to thank Alpha Marine Consulting PC for supporting us in SEEMP Part III preparation,” he added.

“DNV congratulates Arcadia Shipmanagement on being the first company to receive SEEMP Part III approval,” said Ioannis Chiotopoulos, Senior Vice President – Regional Manager SE Europe, Middle & Africa, DNV Maritime. 

“It demonstrates their willingness to ensure that their vessels are out in front, in terms of both regulatory compliance and their sensitivity to the environment. In addition, to have been able to complete the SEEMP Part III preparation and approval so quickly after MEPC shows great teamwork and the effectiveness of our new digital tools. The CII will require more of the shipping industry in terms of data collection and sharing. At DNV, we have invested in developing our competence and services for this new regime, including developing a set of digital solutions that will make compliance as simple and transparent as possible for our customers,” he added.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
