Seaspan Enlists DNV GL for EU-MRV Verification

August 2, 2017

Seaspan Corporation enlists help from DNV GL as a partner for EU-Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of their entire fleet.
 
EU-MRV regulation aims to quantify and reduce CO2 emissions from shipping while creating a new method for benchmarking. Due to the global nature of the maritime business, most vessels will trade in European waters. To prepare, ship owners with a global operation must act by January 2018.
 
“We have all the data necessary for verification in our Fleet Performance System; the fully digital approach of DNV GL allows for our existing data streams to connect directly into DNV GL’s MRV Engine to be managed automatically,” said Ian Robinson, Projects & Technology Director at Seaspan. “This approach improves efficiency and performance, while technology does the heavy lifting of reporting.”
 
Maintaining high levels of data quality is a key challenge and essential throughout the verification process. Connecting quality data delivers accurate results without a lot of added manpower. To ensure this happens, DNV GL continuously monitors the flow of information with the new ECO Insight data quality module, which Seaspan is subscribed to. This module checks incoming data from vessels and allows for immediate corrective action, if needed. The module also supports the incoming IMO-DCS scheme, which comes into force one-year after the EU-MRV scheme.
