The International Maritime Organization (IMO) Sub-Committee on Ship Systems and Equipment (SSE) concluded its 5th session ending 16 March, 2018 by discussing the safety aspects of cold ironing, among other topics.
They acknowledged that plugging a ship into shore-side power and turning off on board generators to be a solution for reducing air pollution from ships, as well as limiting local noise.
The meeting agreed that guidelines on safe operation of on-shore power supply should be developed.
The guidelines will initially focus on operational safety aspects in port for ships engaged on international voyages; and secondly, in view of the various international standards and other variables associated with the different types of ships' and on-shore electrical arrangements, on a uniform set of equipment standards.
A correspondence group was established to further develop draft guidelines, based on which the need for relevant amendments to SOLAS will be considered.
