Rolls-Royce launches cloud-based module for monitoring bunker consumption, CO2

03 Nov 2017 11:41 GMT

New module is designed to help operators meet the EU MRV regulation.



Rolls-Royce has extended its marine energy management solutions with a cloud-based fuel consumption and carbon dioxide monitoring module designed to help ship operators meet the European Union's Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation.

With the new module installed as an add-on solution to the Rolls-Royce Energy Management System, launched in May, data can be sent automatically from the ship to the cloud, where information and reports can be accessed and downloaded from anywhere with an internet connection. The software also validates incoming data.

Bjorn Kare Myskja, Rolls-Royce, UX/Developer Engineer, Digital & Systems, said: "The Energy Management EU-MRV module allows for automated gathering and reporting of fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and other relevant data required of the new regulation."

"With shipowners able to constantly track accurate fuel consumption and emissions data via the Rolls-Royce Energy Management web portal, they can reduce fuel costs and mitigate against incompliance and any financial penalties imposed by member states. More accurate data delivers greater costs savings," Myskja added.

In addition to data collection simplicity, a key focus during the software development phase was data protection. Eivind Vinje, Rolls-Royce, Technical Product Manager - Energy Management, remarked: "System security and integrity has been increased four-fold, with state-of-the-art encryption technologies, a two-step verification process and a 24/7 security centre. We also invited a number of third party cyber security experts to hack into the system, but all failed to breach the protocols or find any weak spots."

The software has been verified by the Norway-accredited MRV verifier Ecoxy AS, which also cooperated in the development of the solution to ensure its compliance with all aspects of the EU MRV regulation as well as to meet customer requirements for a solution capable of substantially reducing manual data inputs.

Since its market introduction earlier this year, the Rolls-Royce Energy Management System has has been contracted for use aboard two Nor Lines vessels.

The collection and reporting of voyage data will become a mandatory requirement from January 1, 2018, when owners of vessels over 5,000 gross tonnes that call at European Union ports will be required to monitor, report and verify their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
