Hanseatic adds web-based MRV module

Maritime software provider Hanseaticsoft has launched a web-based Cloud MRV module for managing compliance with upcoming EU MRV (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification) regulations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The MRV requirements come into force on 1st January 2018, and will apply to all vessels of more than 5,000 GT calling at any EU port and aims to quantify CO2 emissions from shipping. To comply, shipping companies must capture and report on a range of data, including origin and destination information, emissions for each type of fuel consumed during the voyage, as well as distance travelled and cargo carried.

Hanseaticsoft’s Cloud MRV module provides the ability to manage the data monitoring, capture and reporting process within the application. Data can be input from the ship, which is then aggregated, synchronised and transmitted to relevant parties.

All data is managed in one system and any further calculations needed can be carried out automatically within the software. The data is automatically processed and the results prepared in a format ready for submission to a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) approved by the EC for verification purposes.

“Using our Cloud Ship Manager (CSM) all data can be captured offline on board and synchronised to the Cloud as soon as there is an internet connection available,” said Alexander Buchmann, managing director of Hanseaticsoft.

“With all data stored in the Cloud, all that is required is internet access to inspect data from all vessels. This can be done at any time or in any location.”

“Data is transmitted from the vessels easily and can be accessed immediately by relevant parties who can inspect reports about their entire fleet using their web browser. They don’t have to install any software in the office.”

Companies that want to monitor performance to a level beyond the MRV requirements have the option to upgrade to a more fully-featured Event Reporting system within the Hanseaticsoft Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) platform, with additional data such as docking times, machine-related data and bunker analysis.{/mprestriction}

    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.”
