4.1 - General

4.1.1 Attained EEDI should be calculated in accordance with regulation 20 of MARPOL Annex VI and the "Guidelines on the method of calculation of the attained EEDI for new ships" ("EEDI Calculation Guidelines", hereafter). Survey and certification of the EEDI should be conducted on two stages: preliminary verification at the design stage, and final verification at the sea trial. The basic flow of the survey and certification process is presented in figure 1.

4.1.2 The information used in the verification process may contain confidential information of submitters, which requires Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection. In the case where the submitter want a non-disclosure agreement with the verifier, the additional information should be provided to the verifier upon mutually agreed terms and conditions.

4.2 Preliminary verification of the attained EEDI

Ingangsdatum: 01-01-2013

4.2 - Preliminary verification of the attained EEDI at the design stage

4.2.1 For the preliminary verification at the design stage, an application for an initial survey and an EEDI Technical File containing the necessary information for the verification and other relevant background documents should be submitted to a verifier.

4.2.2 EEDI Technical File should be written at least in English. The EEDI Technical File should include at least but not limited to:

  1. deadweight (DWT) or gross tonnage (GT) for passenger and ro-ro passenger ships, the maximum continuous rating (MCR) of the main and auxiliary engines, the ship speed (Vref), as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines, type of fuel, the specific fuel consumption (SFC) of the main engine at the 75 per cent of MCR power, the SFC of the auxiliary engines at the 50 per cent MCR power, and the electric power table1 for certain ship types, as necessary, as defined in the EEDI Calculation Guidelines;

  2. power curve(s) (kW – knot) estimated at design stage under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines, and in the event that the sea trial is carried out in a condition other than the above condition, then also a power curve estimated under the sea trial condition;

  3. principal particulars, ship type and the relevant information to classify the ship into such a ship type, classification notations and the overview of propulsion system and electricity supply system on board;

  4. estimation process and methodology of the power curves at design stage;

  5. description of energy saving equipment;

  6. calculated value of the attained EEDI including the calculation summary, which should contain, at a minimum, each value of the calculation parameters and the calculation process used to determine the attained EEDI; and

  7. calculated values of the attained EEDIweather and fw value (not equal to 1.0), if those values are calculated, based on the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

A sample of an EEDI Technical File is provided in the appendix 1 to these Guidelines.

4.2.3 If dual fuel engines are installed on the ship, the CF factor and the Specific Fuel Consumption of gas fuel should be used if gas fuel will be used as the primary fuel on the ship. In order to verify this, the following information should be provided:

  1. The use of boil-off gas or capacities of the gas fuel storage tanks, and the capacities of fuel oil storage tanks.

  2. Arrangements of bunkering facilities for gas fuel in the intended operational area of the ship.

4.2.4 The SFC of the main and auxiliary engines should be quoted from the approved NOx Technical File and should be corrected to the value corresponding to the ISO standard reference conditions using the standard lower calorific value of the fuel oil (42,700kJ/kg), referring to ISO 15550:2002 and ISO 3046-1:2002. For the confirmation of the SFC, a copy of the approved NOx Technical File and documented summary of the correction calculations should be submitted to the verifier. In case NOx Technical File has not been approved at the time of the application for initial survey, the test reports provided by manufacturers should be used. In this case, at the time of the sea trial verification, a copy of the approved NOx Technical File and documented summary of the correction calculations should be submitted to the verifier.

Note: SFC in the NOx Technical File are the values of a parent engine, and the use of such value of SFC for the EEDI calculation for member engines may have the following technical issues for further consideration:

  1. The definition of "member engines" given in NOx Technical File is broad and specification of engines belonging to the same group/family may vary; and

  2. The rate of NOx emission of the parent engine is the highest in the group/family –
    i.e. CO2 emission, which is in the trade-off relationship with NOx emission, can be lower than the other engines in the group/family.

4.2.5 For ships to which regulation 21 of MARPOL Annex VI applies, the power curves used for the preliminary verification at the design stage should be based on reliable results of tank test. A tank test for an individual ship may be omitted based on technical justifications such as availability of the results of tank tests for ships of the same type. In addition, omission of tank tests is acceptable for a ship for which sea trials will be carried under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines, upon agreement of the shipowner and shipbuilder and with approval of the verifier. For ensuring the quality of tank tests, ITTC quality system should be taken into account. Model tank test should be witnessed by the verifier.

Note: It would be desirable in the future that an organization conducting a tank test be authorized.

4.2.6 The verifier may request the submitter for additional information on top of those contained in Technical File, as necessary, to examine the calculation process of the attained EEDI. The estimation of the ship speed at the design stage much depends on each shipbuilder's experiences, and it may not be practicable for any person/organization other than the shipbuilder to fully examine the technical aspects of experience-based parameters such as the roughness coefficient and wake scaling coefficient. Therefore, the preliminary verification should focus on the calculation process of the attained EEDI to ensure that it is technically sound and reasonable and follows regulation 20 of MARPOL Annex VI and the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

Note 1: A possible way forward for more robust verification is to establish a standard methodology of deriving the ship speed from the outcomes of tank test, by setting standard values for experience-based correction factors such as roughness coefficient and wake scaling coefficient. In this way, ship-by-ship performance comparison could be made more objectively by excluding the possibility of arbitrary setting of experience-based parameters. If such standardization is sought, this would have an implication on how the ship speed adjustment based on sea trial results should be conducted in accordance with paragraph 4.3.8 of these Guidelines.

Note 2: A joint industry standard to support the method and role of the verifier will be developed.

4.2.7 Additional information that the verifier may request the submitter to provide directly to it includes but not limited to:

  1. descriptions of a tank test facility; this should include the name of the facility, the particulars of tanks and towing equipment, and the records of calibration of each monitoring equipment;

  2. lines of a model ship and an actual ship for the verification of the appropriateness of the tank test; the lines (sheer plan, body plan and half-breadth plan) should be detailed enough to demonstrate the similarity between the model ship and the actual ship;

  3. lightweight of the ship and displacement table for the verification of the deadweight;

  4. detailed report on the method and results of the tank test; this should include at least the tank test results at sea trial condition and under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines;

  5. detailed calculation process of the ship speed, which should include the estimation basis of experience-based parameters such as roughness coefficient, wake scaling coefficient; and

  6. reasons for exempting a tank test, if applicable; this should include lines and tank test results of the ships of same type, and the comparison of the principal particulars of such ships and the ship in question. Appropriate technical justification should be provided explaining why the tank test is unnecessary.

4.2.8 The verifier should issue the report on the "Preliminary Verification of EEDI" after it has verified the attained EEDI at the design stage in accordance with paragraphs 4.1 and 4.2 of these Guidelines.


1  Electric power table should be validated separately, taking into account guidelines set out in appendix 2 to these Guidelines.

4.3 Final verification of the attained EEDI at sea trial

4.3 - Final verification of the attained EEDI at sea trial

4.3.1 Sea trial conditions should be set as conditions specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines, if possible.

4.3.2 Prior to the sea trial, the following documents should be submitted to the verifier: a description of the test procedure to be used for the speed trial, the final displacement table and the measured lightweight, or a copy of the survey report of deadweight, as well as a copy of NOx Technical File as necessary. The test procedure should include, at a minimum, descriptions of all necessary items to be measured and corresponding measurement methods to be used for developing power curves under the sea trial condition.

4.3.3 The verifier should attend the sea trial and confirm:

  1. propulsion and power supply system, particulars of the engines, and other relevant items described in the EEDI Technical File;

  2. draught and trim;

  3. sea conditions;

  4. ship speed; and

  5. shaft power and RPM of the main engine.

4.3.4 Draught and trim should be confirmed by the draught measurements taken prior to the sea trial. The draught and trim should be as close as practical to those at the assumed conditions used for estimating the power curves.

4.3.5 Sea conditions should be measured in accordance with ISO 15016:2002 or the equivalent.

4.3.6 Ship speed should be measured in accordance with ISO 15016:2002 or the equivalent and at more than two points of which range includes the power of the main engine as specified in paragraph 2.5 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

4.3.7 The main engine output should be measured by shaft power meter or a method which the engine manufacturer recommends and the verifier approves. Other methods may be acceptable upon agreement of the shipowner and shipbuilder and with approval of the verifier.

4.3.8 The submitter should develop power curves based on the measured ship speed and the measured output of the main engine at sea trial. For the development of the power curves, the submitter should calibrate the measured ship speed, if necessary, by taking into account the effects of wind, tide, waves, shallow water and displacement in accordance with ISO 15016:20021 or the equivalent which may be acceptable provided that the concept of the method is transparent for the verifier and publicly available/accessible. Upon agreement with the shipowner, the submitter should submit a report on the speed trials including details of the power curve development to the verifier for verification.

4.3.9 The submitter should compare the power curves obtained as a result of the sea trial and the estimated power curves at the design stage. In case differences are observed, the attained EEDI should be recalculated, as necessary, in accordance with the following:

  1. for ships for which sea trial is conducted under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines: the attained EEDI should be recalculated using the measured ship speed at sea trial at the power of the main engine as specified in paragraph 2.5 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines; and

  2. for ships for which sea trial cannot be conducted under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines: if the measured ship speed at the power of the main engine as specified in paragraph 2.5 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines at the sea trial conditions is different from the expected ship speed on the power curve at the corresponding condition, the shipbuilder should recalculate the attained EEDI by adjusting ship speed under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines by an appropriate correction method that is agreed by the verifier.

An example of possible methods of the speed adjustment is given in figure 2:

Note: Further consideration would be necessary for speed adjustment methodology in paragraph 4.3.9.2 of these Guidelines. One of the concerns relates to a possible situation where the power curve for sea trial condition is estimated in an excessively conservative manner (i.e. power curve is shifted in a leftward direction) with the intention to get an upward adjustment of the ship speed by making the measured ship speed at sea trial easily exceed the lower-estimated speed for sea trial condition at design stage.



Figure 2: An Example of Possible Ship Speed

4.3.10 In cases where the finally determined deadweight/gross tonnage differs from the designed deadweight/gross tonnage used in the EEDI calculation during the preliminary verification, the submitter should recalculate the attained EEDI using the finally determined deadweight/gross tonnage. The finally determined gross tonnage should be confirmed in the Tonnage Certificate of the ship.

4.3.11 In case where the attained EEDI is calculated at the preliminary verification by using SFC based on the manufacturer's test report due to the non-availability at that time of the approved NOx Technical File, the EEDI should be recalculated by using SFC in the approved NOx Technical File.

4.3.12 The EEDI Technical File should be revised, as necessary, by taking into account the results of sea trial. Such revision should include, as applicable, the adjusted power curve based on the results of sea trial (namely, modified ship speed under the condition as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines), the finally determined deadweight/gross tonnage and SFC described in the approved NOx Technical File, and the recalculated attained EEDI based on these modifications.

4.3.13 The EEDI Technical File, if revised, should be submitted to the verifier for the confirmation that the (revised) attained EEDI is calculated in accordance with regulation 20 of MARPOL Annex VI and the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

These Guidelines provide a framework for the uniform application of the EPT-EEDI validation process for those ships that come under paragraph 2.5.6.3 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

3 Definitions

Ingangsdatum: 01-01-2013

3 - Definitions

3.1 Applicant means an organization, primarily a shipbuilder or a ship designer, which requests the EPT-EEDI validation in accordance with these Guidelines.

3.2 Validator means a Recognized Organization which conducts the EPT-EEDI validation in accordance with these Guidelines.

3.3 Validation for the purpose of these Guidelines means review of submitted documents and survey during construction and sea trials.

3.4 Standard EPT-EEDI-Form refers to the layout given in appendix 3 that contains the EPT-EEDI results that will be the subject of validation. Other supporting documents submitted for this purpose will be used as reference only and will not be subject to validation.

3.5 PAE herein is defined as per definition in paragraph 2.5.6 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

3.6 Ship Service and Engine-room Loads refer to all the load groups which are needed for the hull, deck, navigation and safety services, propulsion and auxiliary engine services, engine-room ventilation and auxiliaries and ship's general services.

3.7 Diversity Factor is the ratio of the "total installed load power" and the "actual load power" for continuous loads and intermittent loads. This factor is equivalent to the product of service factors for load, duty and time.

4 Application

Ingangsdatum: 01-01-2013

4 - Application

4.1 These Guidelines are applicable to ships as stipulated by paragraph 2.5.6.3 of the EEDI Calculation Guidelines.

4.2 These Guidelines should be applied for new ships for which an application for an EPT-EEDI validation has been submitted to a validator.

4.3 The steps of the validation process include:

  1. Review of documents during the design stage


    .1.1
    Check if all relevant loads are listed in the EPT;


    .1.2 Check if reasonable service factors are used; and


    .1.3 Check the correctness of the PAE calculation based on the data given in the EPT.

  2. Survey of installed systems and components during construction stage


    .2.1 Check if a randomly selected set of installed systems and components are correctly listed with their characteristics in the EPT.

  3. Survey of sea trials


    .3.1 Check if selected units/loads specified in EPT are observed.

5 Supporting documents

Ingangsdatum: 01-01-2013

5 - Supporting documents

5.1 The applicant should provide as a minimum the ship electric balance load analysis.

5.2 Such information may contain shipbuilders' confidential information. Therefore, after the validation, the validator should return all or part of such information to the applicant at the applicant's request.

5.3 A special EEDI condition during sea trials may be needed and defined for each vessel and included into the sea trial schedule. For this condition a special column should be inserted into the EPT.

6 Procedures for validation

6 - Procedures for validation

6.1 General

6.1.1 PAE should be calculated in accordance with the EPT-EEDI Calculation Guidelines. EPT-EEDI validation should be conducted in two stages: preliminary validation at the design stage and final validation during sea trials. The validation process is presented in figure 1.



Figure 1: Basic Flow of EPT-EEDI Validation Process



 

6.2 Preliminary validation at the design stage

6.2.1 For the preliminary validation at the design stage, the applicant should submit to a validator an application for the validation of EPT-EEDI inclusive of EPT-EEDI Form and all the relevant and necessary information for the validation as supporting documents.

6.2.2 The applicant should supply as a minimum the supporting data and information, as specified in appendix A (to be developed).

6.2.3 The validator may request from the applicant additional information on top of those contained in these Guidelines, as necessary, to enable the validator to examine the calculation process of the EPT-EEDI. The estimation of the ship EPT-EEDI at the design stage depends on each applicant's experiences, and it may not be practicable to fully examine the technical aspects and details of each machinery component. Therefore, the preliminary validation should focus on the calculation process of the EPT-EEDI that should follow the best marine practices.

Note: A possible way forward for more robust validation is to establish a standard methodology of deriving the ship EPT by setting standard formats as agreed and used by industry.

6.3 Final validation

6.3.1 The final validation process as a minimum shall include the check of ship electric load analysis to ensure that all electric consumers are listed; their specific data and the calculations in the power table itself are correct and are supported by sea trial results.
If necessary, additional information has to be requested.

6.3.2 For final validation the applicant shall revise the EPT-EEDI Form and supporting documents as necessary, by taking into account the characteristics of the machinery and other electrical loads actually installed on board the ship. The EEDI condition at sea trials shall be defined and the expected power requirements in these conditions documented in the EPT. Any changes within the EPT from design stage to construction stage should be highlighted by the shipyard.

6.3.3 The preparation for the final validation includes a desk top check comprising:

  1. consistency of preliminary and final EPT;

  2. changes of service factors (compared to the preliminary validation);

  3. all electric consumers are listed;

  4. their specific data and the calculations in the power table itself are correct; and

  5. in case of doubt, component specification data is checked in addition.

6.3.4A survey prior to sea trials is performed to ensure that machinery characteristics and data as well as other electric loads comply with those recorded in the supporting documents. This survey does not cover the complete installation but selects randomly a number [to be defined] of samples.

6.3.5 For the purpose of sea trial validation, the surveyor will check the data of selected systems and/or components given in the special column added to the EPT for this purpose or the predicted overall value of electric load by means of practicable measurements with the installed measurement devices.

7 Issuance of the EPT-EEDI statement of validation
