79411000
II.1.3)Type of contract
Services
II.1.4)Short description:

EEDI is one of the key short-term measures that will contribute to the achievement the objectives of the IMO GHG strategy. It is high on the agenda of the Commission as well as EU Member States — in its previous input on the issue at international level, the Commission argued for an ambitious EEDI phase 4 that should aim at reducing significantly the GHG emissions of all new ships entering the market as of around 2030. The EEDI has also important safety implications and is therefore closely linked to DG MOVE priorities. To speed up the delivery of concrete GHG emissions reduction measures, the Maritime Environment Protection Committee in its 74th session decided to advance the technical work, which requires an in-depth analysis and revision of the EEDI framework because the margins to improve energy efficiency are progressively reducing. This will require, in turn, new analytic work for most of the ships’ categories.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Energy efficiency design index (EEDI) is one of the key short-term measures that will contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the IMO GHG strategy. It is a key instrument to further stimulate the long-term improvements of ship designs and the use of innovative technologies in line with the levels of ambitions of the IMO initial GHG strategy. It is high on the agenda of the Commission as well as EU Member States — in its previous input on the issue at international level, the Commission argued for an ambitious EEDI phase 4 that should aim at reducing significantly the GHG emissions of all new ships entering the market as of around 2030.

The EEDI has also important safety implications and is therefore closely linked to DG MOVE priorities.

To accelerate the delivery of concrete GHG emissions reduction measures, the Maritime Environment Protection Committee in its 74th session decided to advance the technical work, which requires an in-depth analysis and revision of the EEDI framework because the margins to improve energy efficiency are progressively reducing. This will require, in turn, new analytic work for most of the ships’ categories. Any further contribution by the commission to this high-priority work will therefore need to be based on a scientific and technical analysis. Given the fast-track process at IMO (interim report of the correspondence group to MEPC 75 and final report to MEPC 76 in 2020), this study should bring about preliminary results ahead of MEPC 76 and be concluded shortly afterwards.
