Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP)

From 1 March 2018, Regulation 5.4.5 of MARPOL Annex VI requires Administrations to ensure that the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) of ships of 5,000 GT and above complies with Regulation 22.2 of MARPOL Annex VI.


IMO Guidelines for the development of SEEMP was adopted by Resolution MEPC.282(70).

There are two parts to a SEEMP.

Part I provides a possible approach for monitoring ship and fleet efficiency performance over time and some options to be considered when seeking to optimize the performance of the ship.

Part II provides the methodologies ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above should use to collect the data required pursuant to regulation 22A of MARPOL Annex VI and the processes that the ship should use to report the data to the ship's Administration or any organization duly authorized by it.

Our company IBICON offers You services for development of Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan within the existing Safety Management System to ensure compliance with the new requirements.

In addition, our company offers the preparation of the energy efficiency report and a software product that allows for the quantitative assessment (calculation) of Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI).


The table below contains all the SEEMP measures: 


Improvement method


  1. Fuel Efficient Operations

Improved voyage planning

Careful planning and execution of voyages.

Weather routeing

Potential efficiency savings using routeing tools from existing providers.


Just in time

Optimize speed based on early communication with next port on berth availability.


Speed optimization

To minimize fuel consumption, taking into account engine manufacturers optimal settings and arrival times/availability of berths at port.


Optimized shaft power

Efficiency can be improved by setting constant RPM.

  1. Optimized Ship Handling

Optimum trim

Operating at optimum trim for specified draft and speed.

Optimum ballast

Ballasting for optimum trim and steering conditions.


Optimum propeller and propeller inflow considerations

Possible retrofitting of improved propeller designs and/or inflow modifiers such as fins or ducts in order to improve efficiency.


Optimum use of rudder and heading control systems (autopilots)

Reducing distance sailed 'off track' and minimizing losses caused by rudder corrections. Possible improvements through retrofitting optimized rudder designs.

  1. Hull Maintenance

Hull coating

Use of advanced coating systems, better management of cleaning intervals and underwater inspection.

  1. Propulsion System

Propulsion system maintenance

Systematic minimization of heat and mechanical loss through routine maintenance and optimization.

  1. Waste Heat Recovery

Energy heat loss

Thermal heat loss from exhaust gases to generate electricity or propulsion via shaft motors.

  1. Improved Fleet Management

Fleet Operation Planning

Better utilization of fleet capacity and use of 'best practice'.

  1. Improved Cargo Handling

Cargo handling

Cargo handling matched to ship and port requirements.

  1. Energy Management

Energy usage

Review of energy usage such as electrical and HVAC systems.

  1. Fuel Type

Ship's fuel

Potential use of emerging alternative fuels.

  1. Other Measures

Computer software

Computer software to calculate fuel consumption; use of renewable energy technology; use of shore power.
