IMO Announcement on Mandatory Fuel Consumption Data Collection System
At its recent 70th session in London, the MEPC (Marine Environment Protection Committee) of the IMO (International Maritime Organization) announced that they would be adopting a mandatory fuel consumption data collection system for the shipping industry. This new regulation will apply for all ships above 5,000 gross tonnage and will start from 2019. All ships will have to submit the data to the IMO database.
Earlier this year the EU (European Union) outlined the MRV shipping regulation coming into effect from Jan 1, 2018 which requires large ships (over 5,000 gross tonnage) to monitor their Co2 emissions and other relevant information including fuel consumption on journeys to, from and between EU ports and also when in EU ports.
The Viswa Energy Efficiency Monitoring System (VEEMS) is capable of maintaining and reporting the information to meet both the IMO and EU MRV regulations. This is in addition to many other features including Trim Optimization, Hull and Propeller Efficiency, Voyage Optimization and Engine Efficiency information.
