International Maritime Organisation grants ZESTAs provisional Consultative Status
Ince is proud to share that ZESTAs has been granted International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Consultative Status by the IMO Council.
Subject to final approval by the IMO Assembly next year, ZESTAs is invited to send observers to IMO meetings of interest to the organisation with immediate effect. You can read ZESTAs' press release here.
In May of this year, ZESTAs announced its strategic partnership with Ince.
As the maritime industry attempts to decarbonise significantly towards 2030 and beyond, this new status will allow ZESTAs’ members to share their ample knowledge of zero emissions technology with the IMO, so that its environmental targets stand a better chance of being met.
The key members of the Ince team advising ZESTAs includes Shipping Partner, Eric Eyo, Partner Chris Kidd, who heads up our Shipbuilding and Construction team and also jointly heads up our Energy team, and Senior Associate, Alberta Longanesi Cattani.
Shipping Partner, Eric Eyo, said: "Ince is delighted that IMO Consultative Status has been achieved by ZESTAs, subject to final approval. This should help speed up the adoption of zero emissions technology within the maritime industry and encourage the setting of more ambitious decarbonisation targets by the IMO."
Yesterday, Eric Eyo also met with Madadh MacLaine, the Secretary General of ZESTAs, at the IMO during the 13th Intersessional Working Group on Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Ships.
Zero Emissions Ship Technology Association (ZESTAs) is an international trade association.
ZESTAs’ purpose is to promote rapid and large-scale uptake of Zero Emissions Ship Technology (ZEST). Zero emissions means zero GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions at point of use on the vessel, with minimal upstream impacts. The Association represents ZEST internationally at both industry and regulatory levels.

新闻 / Refund guarantees – avoiding drafting pitfalls
12-05-2022 / 能源及基础设施
Refund guarantees are often described as the cornerstones to shipbuilding projects and the buyer’s main security. Although they do not strictly form part of the shipbuilding contract, a shipbuilding project is unlikely to go ahead at all without one. It is therefore important to understand the different types of guarantee instruments, and the impact each has in practice on the guarantor’s obligations to pay and the buyer’s entitlement to recovery. A well-drafted guarantee provides certainty to the parties and strikes a balance between their respective entitlements and obligations.
