Trident Alliance expands to enforce sulphur regulations

Feb 03, 2015
Trident Alliance, the shipping industry initiative for robust enforcement of maritime sulphur regulations, has broadened as 14 shipping lines join its ranks.

Roger Strevens, Chairman, is delighted at the level of industry engagement.  He said that the introduction of the 0.1% sulphur limits in ECA zones, that came into force on 1 January, 2015, represented a sea change in the regulatory landscape for shipping.  “It is reassuring to witness that so many companies want to make sure the new regulations are implemented in a way that ensures the intended environmental benefits as well as a level playing field.”

The new companies joining the Trident Alliance are: Hapag-Lloyd, DFDS, Ionic Shipping, Euro Marine Logistics, Marinvest, Grieg Star, Wijnne Barends, Seatrade, Spliethoff, Transfennica, Biglift, Ultrabulk, Ultragas, Ultratank.

This brings membership to a total of 31 companies. The member company CEO’s have each signed a Statement of Commitment, in which they commit to supporting robust and transparent enforcement of sulphur regulations as well as to complying with said regulations.

The Trident Alliance continues to participate in industry conferences, working groups and media outreach to realise its objective of raising awareness around the current shortcomings in enforcement of sulphur regulations and the entailing risk to human health, the environment and fair competition.
