MRV module for Bluetracker

Navis is to introduce a new Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) module to its Bluetracker fleet performance management system, tailored to the new EU MRV regulations that will apply to all ships of more than 5,000 GT that enter EU ports as of January 1, 2018.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new Bluetracker module generates MRV-compliant emission reports, with incoming ship operational data continuously verified in real time for accuracy and completeness.

The MRV regulation attaches particular importance to the data quality of the annual CO2 emission reports – starting in 2019, verifiers can reject the reports due to incomplete or inaccurate data and consequently delay the issuance of a Document of Compliance (DoC). This could result in restrictions being imposed against a ship if no corresponding DoC can be provided during a port state inspection.

Ship owners and managers must submit their ship-specific MRV monitoring plan to an independent verifier of their choice for approval by no later than August 30, 2017, including the designation of two methods of CO2 data collection.

To assist with this process Bluetracker will have an integrated Data Validation Engine in the MRV module, which will automatically check incoming data on land in real time for physical and ship-specific limitations, as well as for machine characteristics, consumption curves and hull performance models.

In addition, the reports are checked for their chronological order and consistency to ensure there are no time gaps or multiple entries, with an automatic notification function to alert the crew and superintendent on land if errors exist.

Bluetracker also features a web-based MRV module that can be combined with other reporting systems where data is exchanged via a standard interface.{/mprestriction}
