Verifavia Shipping has launched what it claims is “the world’s first real-time Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) Dashboard to determine the operational efficiency and CII rating of ships over 5,000GT.”
he digital platform ensures recording of vessel ratings as well as ongoing guidance for vessel efficiency to meet emission regulations.
One of the main features of the dashboard is a calculator which can forecast a vessel’s CII rating for a single voyage, time period or reporting period.
The calculator also provides a roadmap for shipowners to understand when vessels, and specific voyages will comply with CII regulation, and to anticipate any changes required to meet compliance.
The Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is a new measure based on an operational approach that supports the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) objective of reducing the carbon intensity of international shipping by 40% by 2030, compared to 2008 levels.
The CII rating scheme will apply to all cargo and cruise ships of 5000GT and above, which equates to all the ships which are already subject to the requirements of the IMO Data Collection System.
Using transparent data, the dashboard can predict the emissions of specific voyages, helping shipowners to plan ahead and simulate future situations, and understand where vessels do not comply and what can be done to meet compliance
