The “International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78)” keeps the important role in controlling the harmful gasses emissions to the environment from navigation activities. It was adopted in July 2011 and added a new Chapter 4 with Regulations on Energy Efficiency for ships to MARPOL Annex VI through the “Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new ships”, and “the Ship EnergyEfficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all ships”. On the other hand, Annex VI (MARPOL 73/78) also added the new definitions and the requirements for survey and validated of the formats for “the International Energy Efficiency (IEE) Certificate”. Furthermore, the role of new ships energy efficiency managements is very significant so contributing to the later ships operation through EEDI index. In this aim, the articles has presented the definitions, regulations following MARPOL Convention as well as calculate the EEDI index and assess this working of energy efficiency managements for new ship M/V Jules garnier.
