Ecoxy approves Kongsberg app for monitoring bunker consumption, emissions

App is designed to simplify the process of collecting data to create the annual MRV report.





Updated on 04 Sep 2017 08:58 GMT

K-Fleet Voyage, Kongsberg's digital application for monitoring ship fuel consumption and emissions, has been verified by Ecoxy AS for use under the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) and the new EU Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (EU MRV) for maritime transport regulation (2015/757). Ecoxy AS is accredited by Norwegian Accreditation as a verifier according to ISO14065 for the ETS and EU MRV.

K-Fleet Voyage is designed to simplify the process required under EU MRV for the daily transfer of data from the ship-based application to the shore-office version; it enables the collection of the information necessary to create the annual MRV report, including: consumption and registration of bunkerings with ROB values at arrival and departure for each fuel type, voyage registration, port registration with port name/berth, ETA/ETD and reason for call, condition and cargo quantity, daily registration of position, sailed distance/time.

"We are committed to being at the forefront with a flexible, cost-effective solution for shipowners to meet these important new requirements," said Rune Kristian Stalstrom, Product Manager - Vessel & Fleet Performance, Kongsberg Maritime. "Deploying K-Fleet Voyage is a cost effective, straightforward process regardless of if a vessel is already operating within the K-Fleet eco-system or not. Our solution supports customers to conform to the new regulations with minimal effort, while providing new opportunities to reduce operational costs by leveraging the extensive data that K-Fleet Voyage delivers."

The regulation, for ships exceeding 5,000 gross tonnes (gt) and which call at any EU port regardless of flag or country of ownership, aims to quantify and reduce CO2 emissions from the shipping industry. Entered into force on July 1, 2015, EU MRV will be fully effective on January 1, 2018, when large ships using EU ports will be required to report their verified annual emissions and other relevant information. However, qualifying shipping companies were required to have monitoring plans prepared by August 31, 2017.

K-Fleet suite of applications

K-Fleet Voyage is part of the K-Fleet suite of applications - a solution for ship management at the single vessel, fleet and shore-office levels.

It is a modular software system designed to assist users' working processes within planned maintenance, inventory management, procurement, QSE, documentation, forms, certificates, voyage reporting and fleet operations. Built on an SQL platform, K-Fleet offers centralised and decentralised management functions and two-way data flow for fleets of all sizes. K-Fleet and K-Fleet Voyage are also available on Kongsberg's brand new digital platform, kognifai.
