Seaspan enlists DNV GL for MRV planning

Seaspan Corporation reports that it has enlisted the help of DNV GL to assist in its planning for EU-Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) compliance on board its 109 vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Ship owners that have any vessels entering European waters are required to put plans in place to quantify and report their CO2 emissions under the MRV rules by 31 August 2017, with data collection set to begin from 1 January 2018. Seaspan will manage this process by using DNV GL’s software to collate the data being generated by its existing systems.

“We have all the data necessary for verification in our Fleet Performance System; the fully digital approach of DNV GL allows for our existing data streams to connect directly into DNV GL’s MRV Engine to be managed automatically,” said Ian Robinson, projects & technology director at Seaspan.

“This approach improves efficiency and performance, while technology does the heavy lifting of reporting.”

DNV GL will continuously monitor this flow of information with a new ECO Insight data quality module within its software system, which checks incoming data from vessels and allows for immediate corrective action, if needed.

The module also supports the incoming IMO-DCS scheme which comes into force a year after the EU-MRV scheme, DNV GL says.

“We are very pleased with the opportunity to partner with Seaspan. Their vision for the future and willingness to adapt to a modern verification approach is highly regarded,” said Nick Roper, DNV GL’s VP of business development for the Americas.

“Seaspan’s addition of 109 vessels to the existing fleet of several thousand vessels in the DNV GL EU-MRV verification platform is a clear sign of the digital transformation that is taking shape globally in the maritime industry. It is exciting to witness this while partnering with such dynamic companies, and to lead in digitalisation.”{/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.”
