ABS Grants Energy Management Certifications

Press Release
Tuesday, January 29, 2013

ABS announced the certification of several maritime industry leaders for adopting energy management systems.

 

Gaslog LNG Services Ltd., Consolidated Marine Management and Goodwood Ship Management Pte Ltd. are among the first organizations to certify their energy management systems using the ABS Guide for Marine Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy (HSQEEn) Management.



These forward-leaning companies are exceeding maritime industry requirements for energy efficiency and establishing systems that will allow them to manage operations that align with increased environmental awareness. This certification recognizes the addition of energy efficiency to these organization’s existing marine management systems. When properly implemented, energy management systems can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support reduced energy costs and improve operating performance.



“Each of these companies has demonstrated a commitment to energy efficiency and developed corresponding management systems that will help drive more efficient operations,” says ABS President and CEO Christopher J. Wiernicki. “The HSQEEn Guide was developed to help owners and operators facilitate a progressive approach to integrated management systems and can be applied to a wide variety of ship operations and management styles.”



ABS’ HSQEEn energy management requirements are based on ISO 50001:2011, the international standard for energy management systems. The standard, which is considered a much broader energy management tool, establishes an energy baseline, demonstrates energy reductions, creates energy goals and action plans, and helps owners and operators manage significant energy-consuming equipment.



“One of our objectives at ABS is to drive innovative solutions that will help owners and operators not only meet their operational and regulatory demands, but also help differentiate themselves as organizations committed to reducing their energy consumption and limiting their environmental impact,” Wiernicki says. “As the maritime industry comes under increased scrutiny in the areas of energy efficiency and emissions control, our goal is to stay abreast of new regulatory requirements and business realities that will significantly impact maritime operations.”



These companies join Maersk Line, Limited (USA), the first recipient of ABS’ HSQEEn certification, in adopting energy management programs as part of their ongoing commitment to achieving sustainable and efficient energy usage.
