Inatech launches ECA Compliance App

Inatech is introducing a cloud-based application to help ship operators comply with the 2015 Emission Control Area (ECA) regulations.

ECA Compliance is a rules-based application and reporting tool that enables operators to record, track and report on their adherence with ECAs. The app will be delivered as part of Shiptech, Inatech’s cloud-based fuel management software.

The new regulations, which come into force in January next year, mean ships within the designated ECAs will be required to use fuel containing less than 0.1 per cent sulphur.

As well as aiding compliance, the app will also alert ships when they are entering or leaving an ECA, reminding them to switch between fuels.

Inatech believes fuel management and procurement will become increasingly complex as the new regulations are introduced, with price and quality both likely to experience volatility.

“Not only will ship operators need to comply with ECAs from 2015, they will also be required to prove compliance,” said Jean-Hervé Jenn, CEO of Inatech.

“This means operators need to record large amounts of data and then report on that data in order to satisfy the detail required by port authorities.”

“ECA Compliance records, tracks, alerts and optimises vessels while they trade in and out of ECA zones, meaning operators can be sure that they are prepared for the introduction of ECAs.”
