RINA Launches Seven Step Fuel Saving Services

RINA press release
Friday, April 27, 2012

International classification society RINA has launched a co-ordinated range of services to help shipowners save fuel and reduce emissions. There are seven different elements to the services which can be adopted individually or as a complete package.

 

The seven services are: auditing to ISO 14001 Environmental Management certification; auditing for ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification; development of the SEEMP (Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan); EEDI verification; Energy Saving and Energy Conservation Analysis; Fuel Consumption Data Analysis and Decision Support Solutions and tailored energy saving training courses.

 

Andrea Cogliolo, head of innovation, RINA Group, says, “All shipowners need some form of assistance and support to cut energy costs. We have a lot of experience working with major passenger ship owners and others to devise energy saving measures, and we know how to implement the ones that work best. Owners can use our services at the level appropriate to them, from simple compliance through to a major re-engineering of how they use energy on ship and ashore. The training complements all that, by ensuring that the people who have to make it all work know what they are doing, and why.”

 

RINA’s auditing services to ISO14001 and 50001 help owners to structure their companies to manage energy efficiently overall. The SEEMP development and implementation and the EEDI verification are aimed at both compliance with IMO requirements and helping to ensure that the compliance results in savings rather than being a cost.

 

RINA’s Energy Saving and Energy Conservation Analysis is built on an analysis of the vessel’s parameters and a survey visit in service to see how energy is used and what the level of awareness of the crew is towards energy saving. RINA can then recommend changes to procedures or equipment and train the crews to implement them.

 

RINA’s Fuel Consumption Data Analysis and Decision Support Solutions service goes further and is based on monitoring of the vessel’s fuel consumption in service and a full analysis of how savings can be made.

 

“What we have found in practice is that the human factor is very important,” says Cogliolo. “You can build in a lot of fuel saving devices but if the crew are not trained and motivated to run the ship efficiently then nothing helps. That is why we see our seventh step, fuel saving training, as a key part of these services to help save fuel.”

 

The RINA Group is an international company that helps enterprises and communities to achieve greater competitiveness and effective risk management through the conception, creation, management and assessment of projects. The Group has developed the best competencies and combined them with its own values of integrity and responsibility, gained in over 150 years of experience, into a way of working that meets the highest expectations.  RINA Group delivers advanced technical competency through a network of companies dedicated to different sectors covering Environment and Quality, Energy, Maritime, Ethics and Safety, Food Production and Healthcare, Infrastructures and Constructions, Logistics and Transport.
