Ship Implementation Plan for 0.5% Sulphur Limit (SIP)
MARPOL Annex VI
The global 0.50% sulphur cap will enter into force in 2020, and more than 70,000 ships will be affected by the regulation.
IMO Marine Environment Protection Committee issued new regulation, requesting ships to develop a ship specific implementation plan, outlining how the ship may be prepared in order to comply with the required sulphur content limit of 0.50% by 1 January 2020. The plan could be complemented with a record of actions taken by the ship in order to be compliant by the applicable date.
The ship implementation plan for 2020 shall cover various items relevant for the specific ship, including, as appropriate, but not limited to:
Risk assessment and mitigation plan (impact of new fuels);
Fuel oil system modifications and tank cleaning (if needed);
Fuel oil capacity and segregation capability;
Procurement of compliant fuel;
Fuel oil changeover plan (conventional residual fuel oils to 0.50% sulphur compliant fuel oil);
Documentation and reporting.
