ClassNK releases IMO DCS software

Classification society ClassNK has released a new software system for the reporting, monitoring and verification of shipping CO2 emissions in line with the IMO DCS regulations that will come into effect in 2019, an addition to its existing ClassNK MRV Portal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Fuel consumption data reporting regulations under EU-MRV (European Union - Monitoring, Reporting, Verification) regulations have already taken effect for ships operating in the EU.

These requirements will be supplemented by IMO’s new DCS (Data Collection System) regulations, which will require all globally operating ships over 5,000GT to collect fuel consumption data and create an annual fuel consumption data report to submit to their flag administration or recognised organisation for verification.

The original ClassNK MRV Portal was launched in 2017 to facilitate compliance with EU MRV regulations, and this has now been updated to support IMO DCS. The software consists of onboard data transmission functions, a shore-based data management system, and functionality for submission of the required annual fuel consumption report.

The software is also capable of connecting with third-party packages or in-house logbook software, and allows users to submit necessary data reports to ClassNK through the system.

“We are very excited and proud to offer this major update to our ClassNK MRV Portal software solution,” said Yoshinori Kozeki, corporate officer, director of survey operations division, ClassNK.

“There is no doubt that the added convenience will prove beneficial to users, and the industry will now be able to smoothly respond to the upcoming IMO regulations.”

Clients already signed up for the ClassNK MRV Portal for EU-MRV can use the software for IMO DCS without any additional registration.{/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.”
