In the most recent ABS publication Insights into EEDI and MPP Verification Practices for Large Tankers and Bulk Carriers we provide the latest updates on the regulations and supporting guidelines for minimum propulsion power and added wave resistance, as well as introducing industry best practices and recent efforts to address these challenges.
At the initial design stage, we provide the following support:
As part of the EEDI preliminary verification, an accurate estimate of EEDI compliance levels can be provided accounting for the following design considerations:
Guidance in the following:
Assistance in meeting the IMO MEPC requirements for minimum propulsion power taking into consideration the constraints of the required EEDI values for the type of ship. We provide both Level 1 and Level 2 assessments for bulk carriers, tankers and combination carriers.
At the end of construction/sea trials and prior to delivery, we provide the following support:
