Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass), has released Rules for LNG-fueled coastal and inland vessels in addition to its already established rules for ocean-going ships.

These rules will help the maritime stakeholders to promote environmentally friendly fuels for coastal as well as inland vessels, IRClass said in its statement.

The rules for gas fuelled vessels have been developed based on a study of the various international requirements such as the ESTRIN (European Standard laying down Technical Requirements for Inland Navigation Vessels), the IMO IGF Code and consultations with various stakeholders.

IRClass has also developed rules for pleasure crafts above 24 meters in length which are in addition to its rules for pleasure crafts below 24m length already published earlier. These new rules are developed based on several national standards as well as ISO standards, IRClass said.
