To minimize the environmental impact and carbon intensity of the marine industry, the International Maritime Organization has passed two key regulations. The Energy Efficiency Existing Index (EEXI) is a technical, design-based index, and the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is an operating index. Both regulations require owners to calculate their vessels’ environmental footprint, meeting specific targets for emissions reduction based on ship type and size.
To facilitate and accelerate the calculation process for ship owners, Bureau Veritas developed VeriSTAR Green. This web platform enables owners to easily and efficiently perform calculations for EEXI and CII, report on fuel consumption data and move toward compliance with IMO regulations.
To comply with EEXI requirements, all ships over 400 GT will need to determine their current EEXI value and compare it to the required value set by IMO. Based on this information, ship owners may need to modify or optimize their vessels to improve environmental performance. VeriSTAR Green’s advanced calculation technology enables ship owners to easily and accurately calculate both attained and required EEXI values, and perform a direct comparison.
Ships over 5,000 GT are subject to IMO requirements for the CII, and must quantify and report on their carbon emissions from operations. VeriSTAR Green provides features for calculating and simulating a ship’s CII, enabling vessel owners to comply with regulations and ultimately limit their carbon emissions.
Both the IMO Data Collection System (DCS) and EU MRV (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification) regulation require ships over 5,000 GT to collect and report on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. VeriSTAR Green encompasses all features previously included in the My Fuel Consumption app, enabling ship owners to monitor, record and report on their emissions.
