EU MRV application added by Kongsberg

Kongsberg Maritime has developed a new Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) application for its K-Fleet suite of Marine Fleet Management Software used to meet the requirements of new EU-regulation 2015/757, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Entered into force on 1st July 2015, the regulation will come into full effect on 1st January 2018 and require large ships using EU ports to report their verified annual emissions and other relevant information.

The regulation, for ships exceeding 5,000 GT and which call at any EU port regardless of flag or country of ownership, aims to quantify and reduce CO2 emissions from the shipping industry and demands that shipping companies have monitoring plans prepared by 31st August 2017.

K-Fleet MRV is designed to provide such a monitoring plan, able to report emissions on a per voyage basis to, from and between EU ports, and is available for deployment now in new and existing K-Fleet installations. The system combines data collection from on board sensors and manual entries, so events can be verified by the Master before reports are sent to the shore office.

“With the established K-Fleet software suite as a platform, we have developed a straightforward, very easy to use solution that ensures shipping companies can comply to new mandatory requirements well before the deadlines,” said Rune Kristian Stålstrøm, general manager – fleet performance, merchant marine division, Kongsberg Maritime.

“In combination with K-Fleet’s potential to help vessels and fleets to operate more efficiently through lower fuel consumption, K-Fleet MRV is an important development that will support the shipping industry to reduce its environmental footprint.”{/mprestriction}

  • EIZO secures LR type approval for maritime monitors

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
