Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan



As we all know the world is growing and understanding the need to

further develop the standards and safety measures to meet the demands for a clean environment.


A lot of thought and capital over the years has gone into understanding and developing improvements for energy efficiency and control of emissions by adequate facilities and supporting systems.


Because of the emissions of air pollutants such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Sulphur Oxides (SOx), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Unburned Hydrocarbons (HxCx), Particulate Matters (PM), caused by the ships, Oil Majors initiated in 2004 through TMSA Element 10A, Oil Majors supplementary requirement since 2009 (OCIMF Energy Efficiency and Fuel Management), and now the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) at its 62nd session agreed to make the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) and Shipboard Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) as mandatory for all ships over 400 GT from 01 January 2013.


The purpose of SEEMP is to establish procedures to improve energy efficiency in vessel operation, to protect the people, environment and maintenance of the safety and quality by tracking and analyzing the energy consumption on vessels and also to control the GHG emissions. SEEMP cycle works in four steps: -


1. Planning


3. Monitoring
4. Evaluation


Energy Efficiency Operation Index (EEOI) is a part of SEEMP to assess the efficiency of a ship with respect to CO2 emissions. SEEMP is divided into two parts: -


The generic (Part A) and the ship-specific part (Part B):


Part(A) Part(B)
Operational Practices

Energy Saving Measures

Technical Practices Implementation
Ship Efficiency Monitoring Fuel-Efficient Operations


One of the most important aspect to achieve this aim is to provide high quality plans, support and advice to the management on industry best practices, energy efficiency and help environment to stay clean and safe. We at Wade Maritime Consultants (WMC) aim to assist you and your organization to instill safety, quality and efficiency by designing a successful energy efficiency management plan. WMC and its highly experienced associates have the ability to design, assist and provide high quality advice to improve ship’s energy efficiency in order to develop the business with best practices.


SEEMPs are required to be carried on board not later than the first intermediate or renewal survey of the IAPP Certificate, whichever occurs first, on or after 1 January 2013.
