There are three additional incentive opportunities within this program (more information and online registration instructions below):
- Environmental Ship Index Incentive
- International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier III Standards (OGV5)
- Technology Advancement Program Demonstration (OGV6)
To be eligible for any of these incentives, operators must register with the Environmental Ship Index (ESI). Click here to register with the Environmental Ship Index. (Vessel operators must provide basic information about their company. Once a company account has been established, operators can register as few or as many of their vessels as they want. To continue to qualify for the incentive, shipping lines must provide quarterly data updates.)
To receive the incentive payment, operators also must register with the Los Angeles Harbor Department (LAHD). Registration is free, and the incentive grant is paid on a quarterly basis. Click here to register with the Los Angeles Harbor Department. Submit completed LAHD ESI Enrollment forms to AQIncentives@portla.org. LAHD registration tells the Port where to send the remittance and what tax forms are required.
