Existing Technology by the Marine Equipment Industry: A contribution to the reduction of the environmental impact of shipping


This ‘book’ was produced by the EMEC Working Group for Climate Change and Environment with the aim of showing what the industry can deliver in terms of technology to benefit the environmental impact of ships.


The first edition of the GreenShip


Technology Book was published in December 2009. Due to its success, a reprinted edition on recycled paper has been published in February 2010. On the basis of the comments received by stakeholders, a second edition of the GreenShip Technology Book is expected to be issued end of April 2010. A PDF version of the GreenShip

Revision of the “International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk”.


A note from the General Manager of the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators Ltd (SIGTTO).


At MSC 83 (2007) , the UK administration introduced a joint paper proposing the revision of the “International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk” - the IGC Code. Tis was placed on to the BLG work programme with the understanding that liquefied gas shipping industry would prepare a revised Code for eventual review


by IMO. An industry-wide steering group was established under the chairmanship of David Macrae of UK MCA in early 2008 to oversee the process. 10 working groups were created to conduct the detailed review work. Te overall activities were co-ordinated by the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators Ltd. (SIGTTO) who provided general secretarial support to all the groups. Te revised Code will be introduced to BLG
