We4Sea approved for MRV

Maritime technology start-up We4Sea, developers of a Cloud platform focussed on increasing fuel efficiency and lowering emissions, has been certified by Verifavia for use as an EU MRV emissions monitoring system.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The We4Sea system collects a range of operational data from a ship, such as position, speed, heading and engine data. This data is sent to shore, where it is combined with other data sources such as weather conditions, wave heights, currents and wind.

The company’s own algorithms and energy models then translate this Big Data into actionable information on how to optimise the operation and configuration of a ship. In pilot projects, We4Sea says that the application of this data analysis has been able to cut fuel costs by up to 20 per cent.

We4Sea has now added a new software module in response to the European regulations on emissions monitoring reporting and verification (MRV) by ships, which has been confirmed as compliant with the requirements of the regulations by Verifavia’s MRV reviewers.

The module captures the required MRV data within standard vessel forms, as part of the normal workflow for arrival, departure, and noon reporting. The collected data feeds into standardised reporting templates that can be submitted for MRV verification at the end of the monitoring period.

Users can also continuously monitor their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in real-time via the online dashboard.

“We are very happy to be officially certified by Verifavia. We4Sea now offers the maritime industry a full range of digital services, focussed on sustainable shipping and reduction of CO2 emissions. For the cost equivalence of two cups of coffee a day, we make EU MRV compliance easy for our customers,” said Dan Veen, CEO of We4Sea.{/mprestriction}
