The North P&I Club on Tuesday (8 October) issued an update stating the Panama Canal has been added to its list of ports and regions where the use of open loop scrubbers is prohibited.
A notice from the Panama Canal Authority NT NOTICE TO SHIPPING No. N-1-2019 “Vessel Requirements”, Section 31 b. (7) states:
“Vessels are not required to changeover to light fuel on their propulsion engines if equipped with a type approved closed-loop exhaust gas cleaning system (scrubbers) kept in operation, during the entire transit. The date and time of the period of operation of this equipment shall be recorded in the engine room logbook.”
Additionally, Section 28 (5) of the same document states:
“Residues from the Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS) washwater are to be collected on board. Discharging these residues into the water bodies under the responsibility of the Panama Canal or incinerating them on board is not permitted.”
The North P&I Club earlier released a list of ports banning scrubber discharges in their waters.
