Phasing in greener engines slowed down by pandemic

Inland navigation currently has only one regulative framework regarding emission standards on vessels. This is the Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) Regulation 2016/1628, also known as the regulative framework for the Stage V emission standards of new engines.

This NRMM Regulation has recently been modified with an amendment, causing an extension of the transition period whereby installing ‘older’ CCRII engines is allowed for a longer period. The obligation to install the ‘newest’ emission standard meeting engines known as Stage V, will not be mandatory before July 2022.
