ABS Nautical Systems launched a new cloud-based software module to simplify MRV compliance. The ‘NS Voyage Manager’ subscription application facilitates compliance by integrating data collected for noon reports and then automating and simplifying the reporting process.
In particular, ABS explains that the software integrates data collected for noon reports or through the NS AutoLogger in the NS database which can capture data directly from sensors and ship systems to improve the accuracy of logged data. Then, the data can be expanded to support other operational activities, including performance management.
“NS Voyage Manager is deployed quickly and accurately to collect data that supports regulatory compliance.” ABS Chief Technology Officer and ABS Nautical Systems President Howard Fireman said.
“Including the NS AutoLogger with NS Voyage Manager substantially improves data accuracy and reduces the reporting burdens on the crew,” says ABS Nautical Systems Chief Operating Officer and Vice President Stephen Schwarz.
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.
