IMO Type Approval for capacity from 60 to 6000 m3/hr. A Type Approval CertiÞ cate has been issued by LloydÕs Register on behalf of the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency to conÞ rm compliance with Guidelines contained in IMO resolution MEPC.174(58).

These include tugs, research vessels, Þ shing vessels, dredges and private passenger vessels.
