Chapter 12 of the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines describes the minimum criteria and requirements for marine vessel projects. Air districts may set more stringent requirements based upon local priorities.

For more information regarding the Carl Moyer Program, please email us or contact ARB's Diesel Hotline.  Chapter 12 of the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines describes the minimum criteria and requirements for marine vessel projects.  Air districts may set more stringent requirements based upon local priorities.

Projects Eligible for Funding

The following categories may be eligible for funding: 

Eligible Project Types: Marine

Project

Description

Engine Repower

Replacing an old vessel engine with a newer, lower emission engine. Repower must be completed 3 years prior to the vessel’s in-use compliance date.

Remanufacture Kit

Kits are comprised of parts that, when installed, reduce the engine’s emissions. Remanufacture must be completed at least 3 years prior to the vessel’s in-use compliance date.

Retrofit Device

The installation of an ARB verified diesel emission control strategy (VDECS).

Considered on a case-by-case basis.

New Purchase

New marine vessels with propulsion and auxiliary engines certified to be at least 30 percent cleaner than the applicable oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emission standard.

Considered on a case-by-case basis.

Shore Power Projects

Shore-side projects meeting the eligibility criteria of the Proposition 1B Goods Movement Program are eligible for CMP funding on a case-by-case basis.

Carl Moyer Program Funding Amounts

The Air Resources Board (ARB or the Board) has adopted two regulations that impact funding opportunities for marine vessel projects: 1) Amendments to the Regulations to Reduce Emissions from Diesel Engines on Commercial Harbor Craft Operated Within Califronia Waters and 24 Nautical Miles of the California Baseline (Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation of CHC) and 2) Regulations to Reduce Emissions from Diesel Auxiliary Engines on Ocean-Going Vessels While At-Berth at a California Port (Shore Power Regulation). There are limited funding opportunities for marine vessels subject to these regulations.

Listed below are the maximum funding amounts for eligible marine projects as described in the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines.
