Seaspan enlists DNV GL for MRV planning

Seaspan Corporation reports that it has enlisted the help of DNV GL to assist in its planning for EU-Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) compliance on board its 109 vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Ship owners that have any vessels entering European waters are required to put plans in place to quantify and report their CO2 emissions under the MRV rules by 31 August 2017, with data collection set to begin from 1 January 2018. Seaspan will manage this process by using DNV GL’s software to collate the data being generated by its existing systems.

“We have all the data necessary for verification in our Fleet Performance System; the fully digital approach of DNV GL allows for our existing data streams to connect directly into DNV GL’s MRV Engine to be managed automatically,” said Ian Robinson, projects & technology director at Seaspan.

“This approach improves efficiency and performance, while technology does the heavy lifting of reporting.”

DNV GL will continuously monitor this flow of information with a new ECO Insight data quality module within its software system, which checks incoming data from vessels and allows for immediate corrective action, if needed.

The module also supports the incoming IMO-DCS scheme which comes into force a year after the EU-MRV scheme, DNV GL says.

“We are very pleased with the opportunity to partner with Seaspan. Their vision for the future and willingness to adapt to a modern verification approach is highly regarded,” said Nick Roper, DNV GL’s VP of business development for the Americas.

“Seaspan’s addition of 109 vessels to the existing fleet of several thousand vessels in the DNV GL EU-MRV verification platform is a clear sign of the digital transformation that is taking shape globally in the maritime industry. It is exciting to witness this while partnering with such dynamic companies, and to lead in digitalisation.”{/mprestriction}
