Technical Presentation: Wartsila EEXI Engine Power Limitation Energy Efficiency Technology

C.I.MAR.E.    VANCOUVER BRANCH INVITES YOU TO JOIN THEM FOR AN INFORMATIVE WEBINAR

DATE: WEDNESDAY, MAY 12th, 2021

TIME: 18:00 Pacific (21:00 Eastern, 22:00 Atlantic, 22:30 NFLD)

Wartsila EEXI Engine Power Limitation Energy Efficiency Technology

Abstract: Synopsis: Planned to come into action in 2023 the proposed amendments to the MARPOL convention requires ships to combine a technical and an operational approach to reduce their carbon intensity. This is in line with the ambition of the Initial IMO GHG Strategy, which aims to reduce carbon intensity of international shipping by 40% by 2030, compared to 2008. The technical requirement to reduce carbon intensity, based on a new Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI); and the operational carbon intensity reduction requirements is based on a new operational carbon intensity indicator (CII).  The dual approach aims to address both technical (how the ship is retrofitted and equipped) and operational measures (how the ship operates). The attained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) is required to be calculated for every ship and in this webinar we will analyze the calculation and identify measures that will improve efficiency that will by extension improve the EEXI and CII.
