This July the 1st the next tier of the Wireless BNWAS” title=”BNWAS”>BNWAS compliance regulations kicks in.
Legislation in accordance with the IMO:
-ships, of 500 gross tonnage and upwards but less than 3,000 gross tonnage, constructed before [1 July 2011], not later than the first survey after [1 July 2013];
-ships, of 150 gross tonnage and upwards but less than 500 gross tonnage constructed before [1 July 2011], not later than the first survey after [1 July 2014].
There are 18months (or first survey thereafter) to install 2699 yachts over 150gt to comply with the IMO regs. 2699yachts is 53% of the World’s fleet which equates to around 149 BNWAS installations per month globally if yachts get in there early with booking in their installation…otherwise a last minute panic to install could be on the cards.
If the yachts do not install early, there is potential to be held up which could render the yacht out of service for some time, causing loss of income for the yacht, and could have implications with insurance claims should there be any kind of incident.
Looking at these stats and the facts in front of us, with limited engineers available globally, we advise the BNWAS installation as soon as possible to minimize the risk of lost revenue and expensive surveys.
