Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology Technology is ready for EU MRV The entry into force of the EU’s emissions reporting and verification scheme is only weeks away. The market already offers a range of compliant sensors, data processing and evaluation technologies.

The collection and reporting of voyage data will become a mandatory requirement from 1 January 2018, when owners of vessels over 5000 gross tonnes that call at European Union ports for commercial purposes will have to monitor, report and verify their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on all voyages, as well as emissions while at berth. Additional required information includes distance travelled, time spent at sea, details of the cargo carried, transport work, and average energy effciency expressed in fuel consumption or carbon emissions per distance or per transport work. In addition, the IMO has outlined a roadmap through to 2023 which is focused on developing a comprehensive strategy for the reduction of GHG emissions from shipping. In April 2015, the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) agreed to mandatory requirements for ships to record and report data on their fuel consumption. At MEPC70 in October 2016, it was decided that these requirements would be adopted as modifications to MARPOL Annex VI. The last months have seen a number of developments on the area of sensor technology and data processing to offer regulation-ready instruments in time. Propulsion-based monitoring Measurement Technology Remote marine data monitoring company, Azurtane, has developed a new exhaust gas sensor technology for sustainable shipping to address the needs of shipowners and shipping industry regulators world-wide. The development was supported by the UK government under the Innovate UK programme. In 2013, Azurtane began trialling its recently developed exhaust gas sensing equipment with Southampton-based ferry company, Red Funnel. The project involved second-by-second measurement of the fuel used on each voyage of the Red Jet 4 Hi-Speed ferry service between Southampton and Cowes. The fuel measurements uncovered massive variations in fuel consumption which were discovered to be due to the way in which the vessel was »driven«. Red Funnel adopted Azurtane’s technology and, as a result, reduced fuel consumption by up to 15% per day. The latest addition to the Red Funnel fleet has been made ready to utilise the same Azurtane technology to allow both the master and the Red Funnel offce to monitor fuel consumption in real time and make adjustments. The company uses its exhaust gas sensors installed on ships to transmit measurements back to Southampton. The data is converted into useable management information for ship operators and the ship’s offcers on board the transmitting ship. This information can pinpoint noncompliance with pollution regulations, identify the actions that need to be taken, compare voyage-by-voyage energy consumption and ascertain the adjustments required to improve effciency. »Until now ships have been sailing blind,« Azurtane’s chief scientist, Henryk Herman, explains. »Big Data can either be seen as the latest management gimmick or be used to identify trends and patterns in ineffciencies in a sea of conflicting and confusing external factors.« Because nothing can go wrong at sea, many components such as engines, hydraulics and lubrication systems as well as thermal management systems must work together reliably. To this end, we have combined our systems competence for Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology WE ARE ON BOARD WITH EXPERTISE. Reliability from mast to bilge. marine technology—for uncompromisingly clean performance. MAHLE’s high-quality and extremely reliable engine components such as pistons, piston pins and rings, cylinder liners and valve train systems are the driving force for powerful diesel engines. Wherever there is a need for efficient and safe cooling, we are able to offer leading thermal management systems and heat exchangers. We drive your success. Worldwide.
