Dry Bulk Vetting With GHG Emission (Rightship Requirements)

Dry Bulk Vetting With GHG Emission (Rightship Requirements)

Start Date: 17/02/2020
Instructor: Jeff Seale
Location: 26 Akti Poseidonos – Piraeus





This two-day BC Dry Vetting Course with GHG Emissions is aimed at developing an appreciation of the key practical issues for anyone involved with a Rightship vetting inspection. In addition, an outline of GHG emissions rating.

The course will help to empower ship managers, operators, owners and crew involved in the vetting process, with an understanding and additional skill set to be able to handle the inspection more professionally and make better decisions.
The course not only covers dry vetting methodologies of the inspections but also EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index and EVDI (Existing Vessel Design Index). The common question in the market is how can EEDI and EVDI change your rating? During the course this will be answered and how can the vessels work towards a cleaner environment and improved environmental star ratings.
During this course you will be encouraged to explore real life scenarios and participate in technical exercises to enhance your learning experience. The class is very interactive with questions encouraged at any time.

During the course we will discuss vetting procedures, green ships, environmental ratings, optimization and what to do to secure a good vetting report.



As you are no doubt aware Rightship carry out inspections on both dry-cargo and tankers although on Tankers the Oil Major inspections are more common.

I would estimate that about eighty percent of the Rightship inspection is common to both types of vessel and 100% of the advice on how to handle the surveyor is relevant to all vessels. Gangways, ISPS, LSA & FFA, mooring, bridge, accommodation, engine-room and machinery spaces, ISM etc. are common to all vessels. Accordingly, it may be beneficial if senior officers of both dry cargo vessels and tankers attended the course. As well as shore staff like fleet managers, DPA, CSO, Safety Management Teams, Superintendents, Managing Directors etc. The items peculiar to each type of vessel, i.e. hatch­ covers and cargo holds, cargo tanks, pump-rooms, IGS etc. could be addressed separately during other sessions.

Consideration should be given to having Superintendents and owners attend the course. Whilst superintendents they are invariably technical staff, they attend the vessels at regular intervals and should be aware of Rightship requirements. Owners need to understand the importance of pre-vetting inspections and training both onboard and inhouse.



Anyone with a vested interest in vessel upgrading and clean Port State Control records.
Anyone who genuinely cares and has a vested interest in crew safety and good ship practices.
