MOL Earns World’s 1st Certification for Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan; Recognizing effectiveness of SEEMP in reducing vessel CO2 emissions.

 
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced that the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP*1), MOL already has in place was certified with Statement of Compliance by the international classification society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). Effective December 5, the certification verifies the plan including its application for calculating Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI*2) in accordance with SEEMP guidance and EEOI guideline from the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
 

MOL led the world in formulating SEEMP ahead of the IMO’s adoption of requirements that SEEMP should be provided on board from January 2013. The company has maintained operation schedules while ensuring safe operation based on that, and continually pursuing and implementing comprehensive Eco Sailing, a key element of its midterm management plan GEAR UP! MOL, while undertaking continual improvement through an ongoing PDCA*3 cycle.
The MOL-formulated SEEMP is an effective way of identifying problems and confirming the effectiveness of improvements by introducing its unique EEOI calculation method in addition to the one guided by the IMO. It also features comprehensive and organic linkage of application of innovative technologies such as the optimum trim*4 backed by onboard and onshore demonstration tests, selection of optimum route by using weather information support systems and so on, and the next-generation concept vessels project “Senpaku ISHIN” MOL has been promoting.
 

 
Certification by ABS, an independent third party, reflects an objective evaluation of MOL’s energy-saving ship operation activities toward achievement of its environmental target of a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions per unit load from FY2009 to FY2015. The MOL Group continually evolves as a corporate group that responds to the demands of the times by providing transport solutions with a reduced environmental burden.
