VAF performance management system gets MRV approval

VAF Instruments’ IVY propulsion performance management system has been granted certification for use in compliance with the European Union’s Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation requirements.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The IVY system, designed to automatically monitor and report voyages, has been approved by verification company Verifavia for use in compliance with both EU MRV and upcoming IMO DCS (Data Collection System) processes.

In addition to reporting for these programmes, the technology can also be used to monitor the performance of a ship’s hull, propeller, and engine, using inbuilt sensors and fuel oil flowmeters.

“We’re proud to have been able to optimise IVY to not only support ship owners and operators in complying with EU MRV and IMO DCS regulations, but also to enable the achievement of tangible fuel savings onboard, resulting in an overall reduction in operational expenditure,” said Erik van Ballegooijen, R&D team coordinator and technical consultant for hydromechanics, VAF Instruments.

To achieve MRV certification, the IVY system had to undergo a review against the requirements of EU MRV Regulation 2015/757. In addition, VAF Instruments had to demonstrate that its system meets the MRV data collection requirements and follows the best practices set by ISO standard 25051 on software engineering.{/mprestriction}
