shorepower -- Forms for the At-Berth Regulation Advisory are now available Posted: 20 Feb 2014 16:02:32
Forms for the At-Berth Regulation Advisory have been posted to the Shore Power website. As specified in the December 2013 Regulatory Advisory, fleets need to notify ARB of their intention to qualify for temporary relief under each scenario they intend to use. Fleets also need to provide evidence that they have made a good faith effort to comply with the At-Berth Regulation. To do this, fleets must complete the "December 2013 Regulatory Advisory Notification" form and return it by March 21, 2014. In addition, fleets are required to provide verification of their claims. To do this, fleets must complete the separate “December 2013 Regulatory Advisory Reporting Form.” To download the forms, please visit the “Forms and Tools” section of the Shore Power website http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/shorepower/forms/forms.htm#raf We will host an information webinar on March 6, 2014 to discuss these forms. Please visit the shore power website to register for the webinar. http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/shorepower/shorepower.htm If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Jonathan Foster, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 327-1512 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: 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. California is in a drought emergency. Visit www.SaveOurH2O.org for water conservation tips.
