IRClass releases rules for LNG-fuelled coastal and inland vessels

New rules are in addition to its previously established code for ocean-going ships.





Updated on 06 Jul 2017 13:27 GMT

The Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass), has released rules for LNG-fuelled coastal and inland vessels in addition to its already-established rules for ocean-going ships.

In a statement, IRClass said the new rules were "a significant move, which underscores the increasing importance of using cleaner fuels."

"These rules will help the maritime stakeholders to promote environment friendly fuels for coastal as well as inland vessels," IRClass added.

IRClass said the rules for gas-fuelled vessels were developed based on a study of the various international requirements such as the European Standard laying down Technical Requirements for Inland Navigation Vessels (ESTRIN), the IMO's International Code of Safety for Ships using Gases or other Low-flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code) and consultations with various stakeholders.

Founded in 1975, the Indian Register of Shipping is a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS). The IRClass brand provides survey, inspection and certification services to the maritime and industrial sectors.
