CESNI has produced a guide aiming to clarify the administrative procedure for the recognition and installation of marinised engines (NRE and Euro VI) in inland navigation vessels within the framework of Regulation (EU) 2016/1628 and the ES-TRIN.
To ease the implementation of ES-TRIN to traditional craft, CESNI has developed a guide to possible derogations from technical requirements.
Measurements and condition of the vessel’s hull and hull equipment shall be subject of a report in accordance with the model “Hull Survey Report” or equivalent. This model provides the list of minimum data required for hull survey report and is not a mandatory format.
The CESNI Secretariat is regularly requested by the public for information on the procedure for derogations and equivalences from technical requirements. In order to ensure transparent and comprehensive information, considering both EU and CCNR legal frameworks, the CESNI decided to publish a leaflet on its website. The procedure described allows to gain experience with pilot projects (e.g. alternative fuels) and actively supports innovation and greening of the fleet.
