shorepower -- Regulatory Advisory for the At-Berth Regulation

Posted: 23 Dec 2013 12:41:42
The regulatory advisory has been posted to the Shore Power
website. This regulatory advisory describes steps the Air
Resources Board (ARB) is taking to assist vessel fleets with the
transition to the 2014 compliance requirements under the Airborne
Toxic Control Measure for Auxiliary Diesel Engines Operated on
Ocean-Going Vessels At-Berth in a California Port (Regulation). 
California’s ports, terminals, and most of the vessel fleets have
made substantial investments in new equipment and practices to
transform their operations and meet the requirements of the
Regulation.  These vessel fleets need some flexibility during the
transition period from January 1 June 30, 2014, to implement the
new practices. The overall goal of this action is to recognize
good faith compliance efforts while ensuring that emissions
reductions required by the Regulation are achieved in a timely
manner to provide critical public health benefits for communities
near ports.

In December 2007, the Air Resources Board approved the At-Berth
(Shorepower) regulation. The purpose of the regulation is to
reduce emissions from diesel auxiliary engines on container
ships, passenger ships, and refrigerated-cargo ships while
berthing at a California Port. The regulation provides two
options to reduce at-berth emissions: 1) turn off auxiliary
engines and connect the vessel to some other source of power; or
2) use alternative control technique(s) that achieve equivalent
emission reductions.
