ABS adds software for compliance management

ABS, via its ABS Nautical Systems software division, has launched a new Cloud-based subscription application called NS Voyage Manager to assist users in managing compliance with a range of environmental regulations, including the European Union (EU) Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation for CO2 emissions.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The software integrates data collected for noon reports or through the NS AutoLogger, which captures data directly from sensors and ship systems in the NS database, automating the compliance reporting process. The data captured can also be expanded to support other operational activities, including performance management.

“Including the NS AutoLogger with NS Voyage Manager substantially improves data accuracy and reduces the reporting burdens on the crew,” said ABS Nautical Systems chief operating officer and vice president, Stephen Schwarz.

“This new module is also flexible and can be expanded and customised based on any operator’s requirements.”

The software is configured to the user’s own EU MRV monitoring plan, facilitates submissions to the chosen third party verifier and automatically reports verified compliance data directly to the EU.

NS Voyage Manager also captures Bunker Delivery Notes for MRV compliance and supports other environmental compliance activities, including ballast water exchange, fuel switching (ECA compliance), garbage record book, oil record book, vessel general permit (VGP), and IMO DCS.{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
