GL launches “GL EmissionManager” - Hamburg Süd is partner in a pilot project.

At SMM 2012 classification society Germanischer Lloyd announced the launch of a new product, “GL EmissionManager”, which will allow owners and operators to collect, track and calculate the emissions of a ship in detail for the first time.

In cooperation with German shipping company Hamburg Süd, GL have developed the GL EmissionManager system to systematically capture all environmentally relevant ship operation data. Using this software tool, owners and operators no longer have to rely on assumptions and estimates, but instead have reliable data with which to assess the performance of vessels and fleets and to generate reports for mandatory regulations, voluntary databases and to satisfy a client base which is increasingly interested in verifying environmental performance.

The GL EmissionManager software is designed to systematize and structure reports that are traditionally recorded in less coordinated ways. Operational and voyage-related data, such as noon/position report, departure, arrival, and stoppage reports is recorded and analysed and environmental information, examining factors such as fuel consumption, emissions to air (CO2, SOX, NOX), garbage, sludge, ballast water and chemicals, is extracted.

“The GL Emission Manager works with data that is already being entered manually today. But because currently this is not being collected in one tool, making additional evaluations and conclusions based on the data is not possible,” explained Dr Torsten Büssow, GL’s Head of Maritime Software, at the launch of the new product at GL’s stand at SMM in Hamburg today.

The system consists of two parts, a software component that collects information (“emission recorder”) and a ‘Green Server’, where the data is analysed and certified and where different reports are produced.

“As you can only manage what you measure, the GL EmissionManager’s comprehensive reporting capability allows owners and operators to set targets and measure target achievement – two basic requirements for the SEEMP, for example,” said Dr Büssow. “The system offers shipowners the opportunity to set up comprehensive emission reporting for the entire fleet using the data you already have, benefit from comprehensive fleet analysis capabilities across all operational and voyage data and improve data quality and integrity to the highest certifiable standards.”
