The Green Award ship certification scheme has introduced a Platinum label for inland vessels operating emission-free.

The Platinum label will be given to inland navigation ships that operate several hours a day with zero emissions of CO2, SOx, NOx and PM. Emissions are avoided by use of electrical propulsion powered by batteries or fuel cells.

The first inland navigation vessel with zero emissions is expected to be certified in 2018.

Green Award launched its certification programme for inland ships in 2011. Since then, the number of certified inland navigation barges has been growing ever since - and has now reached 631, Green Award says.

The Platinum label comes in addition to existing Bronze, Silver and Gold certification levels within the Green Award program. Green Award hopes that the Platinum label will be recognized by ports and other incentive providers and rewarded with suitable incentives to further promote emission-free ship operations.

Green Award says it will also be considering introducing the Platinum label for sea-going ships as well in the future.
