You can apply for this approval if you are the master or owner of a cruise ship and you intend to use alternative methods for emission reductions.
From October 2015, cruise ships are required to use low sulfur fuel (0.1 per cent of less) while berthed in Sydney Harbour. This is due to the growing community concern about shipping emissions and increasing evidence of the health impacts from diesel and marine emissions. This approval allows you to use alternative methods to achieve low sulfur oxides and particulate matter emissions instead of using low sulfur fuel.
