Bureau Veritas announced the release of ‘Phase 2’ of My Fuel Consumption (MFC). This in an online tool to enable compliance with fuel consumption regulations, namely IMO’s data collection system (DCS) and the EU’s monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) requirements. My Fuel Consumption is a cloud based web application available on desktop, mobile and tablet.
Phase 1 of MFC was released in April 2018 to facilitate the preparation of IMO DCS Plans (SEEMP Part II) for submission to Bureau Veritas for review. The new phase now enables:
- Reporting of fuel consumption for IMO DCS requirements;
- Reporting of CO2 emissions for EU-MRV requirements;
- Using smart calculation engines, MFC ensures that vessel fuel consumption data is automatically registered for the different schemes.
Shipowners will receive voyage based activities and ‘at berth’ activities for EU-MRV regulations as well as activities under the IMO DCS scheme. Moreover, automatic calculations based on data inputs create reports in the necessary formats for each reporting scheme. These include aggregated and disaggregated reports for IMO DCS and customised reports to reflect a change of manager or a change of flag.
The IMO-DCS reports are then submitted to Bureau Veritas for review and provision of a statement of compliance. The EU-MRV reports can be generated by My Fuel Consumption and then can be sent to the EU’s Thetis database by the owner or manager.
