Greek Ship Management Company Gains DNV Certifications

Press Release
Thursday, August 30, 2012

DNV awards ISO 50001 certification & SEEEMP conformity to the Greek shipping company Arcadia Shipmanagement Co Ltd.

As commercial ship operators around the world continue to search for ways to lower their environmental impact and operating costs, ISO 50001 offers a voluntary international standard that specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy-management system. It offers companies a systematic approach to continually improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use and consumption.

Certification to the ISO 50001 standard is one way in which ship operators can reduce the environmental impact of their operations, according to Nikolaos Boussounis, DNV Regional Manager for Region East Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas.

On the other hand, the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) is mandatory as defined by IMO MEPC 213 (63). It incorporates best practices for the fuel efficient operation of ships, such as better speed management throughout a ship’s voyage. Such efficiency measures will significantly reduce fuel consumption and, consequently, CO2 emissions.

Arcadia is the first shipping operator certified by DNV Greece, according to ISO 50001. “ARCADIA has long recognised the value and importance of strong management systems. The implementation of ISO 50001 should reduce our ships’ energy costs, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts,” said Mattheou Dimitrios, Managing Director of Arcadia Shipmanagement Co Ltd.
