Polarcus receive the world’s first-ever DNV Level 1 Triple-E™ rating for its fleet of sesimic survey vessels.

Triple-E™ is a voluntary environmental rating scheme for ships with a rating from Level 4 to Level 1, where 1 is the highest. To achieve Level 1, all levels must be complied with and there are areas of compliance within management, operation and design. The rating is based on a verification of a ship’s actual energy efficiency and environmental performance, carried out by an independent third party. This gives a transparent and detailed view of the company and vessel performance and associated standards. Fundamental key elements evaluated include:

    •    Environmental management systems in place and implemented
    •    Energy efficient operation as part of policies, action plans and daily operations
    •    Energy efficient ship design
    •    Verifiable monitoring, measurements and documentation schemes

"We are impressed by the structured approach Polarcus has taken to implement all identified environmental and energy efficiency tasks across their fleet. The company management has been supporting the process all the way. This has given proven results in terms of improved company performance and energy efficient ship operations” says Petter Andersen, Triple-E™ Product Manager, DNV.

The Triple-E™ rating enables Polarcus to demonstrate the company's environmental responsibility and showcase its energy efficient operations, underscoring the company's pioneering environmental agenda.
