EU MRV application added by Kongsberg

Kongsberg Maritime has developed a new Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) application for its K-Fleet suite of Marine Fleet Management Software used to meet the requirements of new EU-regulation 2015/757, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Entered into force on 1st July 2015, the regulation will come into full effect on 1st January 2018 and require large ships using EU ports to report their verified annual emissions and other relevant information.

The regulation, for ships exceeding 5,000 GT and which call at any EU port regardless of flag or country of ownership, aims to quantify and reduce CO2 emissions from the shipping industry and demands that shipping companies have monitoring plans prepared by 31st August 2017.

K-Fleet MRV is designed to provide such a monitoring plan, able to report emissions on a per voyage basis to, from and between EU ports, and is available for deployment now in new and existing K-Fleet installations. The system combines data collection from on board sensors and manual entries, so events can be verified by the Master before reports are sent to the shore office.

“With the established K-Fleet software suite as a platform, we have developed a straightforward, very easy to use solution that ensures shipping companies can comply to new mandatory requirements well before the deadlines,” said Rune Kristian Stålstrøm, general manager – fleet performance, merchant marine division, Kongsberg Maritime.

“In combination with K-Fleet’s potential to help vessels and fleets to operate more efficiently through lower fuel consumption, K-Fleet MRV is an important development that will support the shipping industry to reduce its environmental footprint.”{/mprestriction}
