1st January 2018, vessels larger than 5,000 GT calling at any
EU and EFTA (Norway and Iceland) port must monitor report and verify their CO2 emissions.
This data must be collected on a voyage-by-voyage basis and submitted to the EU
electronically via the EMSA portal on either an annual or voyage basis.
Companies must present a plan for compliance with this legislation by 31st August 2017, which must contain the
method of collecting the monitoring data.
updated software of NAPA, a world leading maritime software, services and data
analysis provider, makes the task easy for the companies.
of NAPA Shipping Solutions, ClassNK-NAPA GREEN and NAPA-DSME Power® can
generate automatically created annual or voyage-by-voyage MRV
reports and export them as CSV files, requiring only a small process change by
crew. Crew must update the performance monitoring system with changes of
activity, like being in port or at anchor, known as phase information. With
that information, the performance monitoring system automatically completes the
rest of the process, collecting data on fuel consumption from main engines,
auxiliary engines, gas turbines, boilers and inert gas generators, and
reporting for each engine the fuel type and fuel consumption data (where fuel
meters are in use). This data is then automatically shared with shore-based
teams, ready for export from NAPA Office as a CSV file and submission to the
Kariranta, Director of Services, NAPA Shipping Solutions commented:
“Complying with EU MRV presents a significant challenge globally for ship
owners and operators with vessels visiting European waters. Determining data
collection methods before the end of August, and completing that data
collection, compiling and submitting reports from next year could all take
significant man hours. As leaders in supporting productivity in ship
operations, as well as supporting efficiency-led CO2 reductions, we are pleased
to offer our customers systems that make this process as easy as possible for
vessels with performance monitoring systems installed.
each performance monitoring system NAPA supports, NAPA Shipping Solutions,
ClassNK-NAPA GREEN and NAPA-DSME Power®, we have enabled simple,
one-click report generation for MRV, enabling voyage-by-voyage or annual
reporting to be completed as simply, and quickly as possible. This
functionality has also been designed to meet reporting criteria and be
compatible with the IMO’s fuel consumption data collection system from 2019.”
