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}
