Many shipowners have underestimated the cost and complexity of complying with Paragraph 20 of IMO Regulation 29: Rules for Steering Gear, which entered into force on 1 September 1988. The text of the paragraph is reproduced and upgrading packages that are being marketed by Frydenbo-Mjolner A/S to enable compliance for ram-type gears are described. The M, E and V ranges of electrohydraulic steering gear from Kawasaki Heavy Industries are also described. These were specifically developed to meet more stringent IMO regulations for tankers, revised classification society rules and general market demands for greater fuel efficiency and simplified systems.
