Marine Vessel Projects

Marine vessel project types include engine repower and shore power. Each category is summarized below.

Marine Engine Repower:

Vessels not subject to the in-use compliance requirements of CARB’s Commercial Harbor Craft Regulation such as fishing vessels, pilot boats and work boats are eligible.  Limited Carl Moyer Program (CMP) funding opportunities remain for vessel engines subject to the in-use compliance requirements of CARB’s Commercial Harbor Craft (CHC) regulation (i.e., barge, crew/supply, dredge), since the repower must be completed at least three (3) years prior to the vessel’s regulatory in-use compliance date.  Based on the vessel’s operation, the newer engine’s emissions must be surplus to the currently required U.S. EPA marine engine emission standard (i.e., Tier 3, Tier 4, etc.).

Shore Power (Ship Side) Projects:

Limited CMP funding opportunities remain for shore power projects due to the applicability of CARB’s At-Berth Regulation.  Applicants must submit their CARB-approved Initial Terminal Plan to document compliance with CARB’s Shore Power regulation.  The proposed project must provide emission reductions that are surplus to regulatory requirements.  Projects not subject to CARB’s regulation are eligible.
