The environmental agenda for shipping in 2013

The environmental topics of immediate interest in 2013 will be the introduction of EEDI in January and the new potential of LNG, says senior consultant from the nautical office of The Danish Shipowners’ Association, Hans Otto Holmegaard Kristensen.

The new energy efficiency index EEDI and the new opportunities LNG has to offer shipping will take up a lot of space on the environmental agenda for 2013. This is the assessment made by Hans Otto Holmegaard Kristensen.

“When the EEDI demands take effect on January 1st 2013, it will be exciting to see how they are handled by the companies and the yards. There are some technicalities which still need adjustment in collaboration with the industry. Undoubtedly, it is sound to sail by the EEDI index, but there might arise some transition problems once the practicalities start getting closer,” says Hans Otto Holmegaard Kristensen to ShippingWatch.
