SetelHellas’ SeeMBox-V MRV solution independently certified by Verifavia
[...] Shipping companies operating in the European Union (EU) have until 2017 to prepare plans to monitor and report their carbon emissions that will see the European Union (EU) collect and make publicly available data for over 10,000 vessels visiting EU ports. Designed to assist shipping companies in complying with the Regulation by aggregating data, the SeeMBox-V MRV Solution has been independently verified in terms of process and functionality.
The Regulation specifies four acceptable fuel consumption monitoring methodologies; bunker fuel delivery note (BDN) and periodic stock-takes of fuel tanks; bunker fuel tank monitoring on board; flow meters for applicable combustion processes and direct emissions measurements. The SeeMBox-V MRV Solution is compliant with all four methods, enabling shipowners to monitor all vessel types within the fleet with a single integrated tool. It accommodates both manual and online data entry to monitor operational data per voyage, conduct data quality checks and validations, and generate annual reports on a per vessel basis.
Julien Dufour, CEO, Verifavia Shipping, commented:
“Our team of verification experts conducted a thorough review of the SeeMBox-V MRV Solution against the requirements of the Regulation 2015/757 ‘Shipping MRV’ in terms of process and functionality. As part of the certification, we used the ISO standards 25051 on software engineering and 17065 on product certification. We were impressed by the quality and robustness of the SeeMBox-V MRV Solution and believe that it will provide transparent and accurate support to shipping companies in complying with the EU Shipping MRV Regulation.” [...]
