Shipping companies operating in the EU have just eight months until the August 2017 deadline to prepare plans to monitor and report their carbon emissions. Adopted last year, EU MRV creates an EU-wide legal framework for the monitoring, reporting and verification of CO2 emissions from maritime transport.
Specifically designed to assist shipping companies in complying with the regulation by monitoring bunkering and fuel consumption, EcoMATE™ MRV has been independently verified in terms of process and functionality.
EcoMATE™ MRV enables shipowners to monitor all vessel types within the fleet with a single integrated tool. It accommodates both manual and online data entry to monitor operational data per voyage, conduct data quality checks and validations, and generate annual reports on a per vessel basis.
Julien Dufour, CEO, Verifavia Shipping, commented:
“Focused on process and functionality, our team of verification experts conducted a thorough review of the EcoMATE™ MRV system against the requirements of the EU MRV Regulation 2015/757. We used the ISO standards 25051 on software engineering and 17065 on product certification. Our collaboration with KROHNE Marine was very efficient and professional and we have every confidence that the EcoMATE™ MRV system will accurately and transparently support shipping companies in complying with the MRV regulation.”
Hasse Hogner, Managing Director, KROHNE Marine, commented:
“Our EcoMATE™ MRV system was specifically designed to improve energy efficiency reporting. Based on our robust and accurate Coriolis mass-flowmeters and an extension of our established EcoMATE™ system, the software will take care of data acquisition, logging, calculations, monitoring and reporting. By simplifying data input and automating the calculation of emission and efficiency data, as well as reporting, EcoMATE™ MRV provides a simple and reliable solution to support compliance.”
