DELFT, December 10, 2019 – Upgraded We4Sea Carbon Emissions Monitoring module receives full certification for both IMO-DCS as EU-MRV emission monitoring.
We4Sea developed a cloud platform that offers advanced solutions to optimize the performance ánd reduce fuel consumption and emissions of seagoing ships.
We4Sea recently expanded their a existing software module, in response to the IMO Data Collection System (DCS) and European Monitoring, Reporting & Verification (MRV) regulations. These regulations require all ships larger than 5000 Gross Tonnage to monitor, register and verify their CO2 emissions.
In November 2019, an updated version was released with new functionalities. We4Sea’s CO2 monitoring modules have been intensively reviewed by Verifavia’s experts against the requirements of both EU MRV Regulation (2015/757) , MRV Reporting Tool Thetis and IMO DCS in terms of process and functionality and found to be fully compliant.
Using We4Sea’s MRV and DCS module, all required data is easily captured within standard vessel forms as part of the normal workflow for arrival, departure, and noon reporting. The collected data instantly feeds standardized reporting templates that can be submitted for verification at the end of the monitoring period. In addition, We4Sea clients can continuously monitor their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in real-time via an on-line dashboard.
– Dan Veen, CEO of We4Sea:
“We are very happy to renew our certifications with an idependent verifier such as Verifavia. We4Sea now offers the maritime industry a full range of digital services, focussed on sustainable shipping and reduction of CO2 emissions. It is a next step in our mission to make emission compliancy easy for our customers”.
– Michiel Katgert, CTO of We4Sea:
“Monitoring and reporting is the first step in improving fuel-efficiency. Our CO2 monitoring module can easily be extended with additional modules, which help the ship-owner tools to cut his fuel bill substantially. This will not only have a direct impact on their financial results, but it will also improve the sustainability of their operations and lead to a reduction of CO2.”
