ABS Nautical Systems simplifies MRV compliance
ABS, a leading provider of classification and technical services to the offshore and marine industries, has launched ABS Nautical Systems NS Voyage Manager to simplify compliance reporting. The cloud-based, subscription application facilitates compliance with a range of environmental regulations, including the European Union (EU) Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) regulation for CO2 emissions.
The software integrates data collected for noon reports or through the NS AutoLogger in the NS database, automating and simplifying the compliance reporting process. The secure, marine-grade NS AutoLogger captures data directly from sensors and ship systems to improve the accuracy of logged data. The data captured can be expanded to support other operational activities, including performance management.
The software is configured to a client’s EU MRV monitoring plan, facilitates submission to the third party verifier and automatically reports verified compliance data directly to the EU. ABS was the first class organization accredited to perform EU MRV assessments and is leading the way in helping streamline and simplify the compliance process for owners and operators.
NS Voyage Manager also captures Bunker Delivery Notes for MRV compliance and supports other environmental compliance activities, including Ballast Water Exchange, Fuel Switching (ECA Compliance), Garbage record Book, Oil Record Book, Vessel General Permit (VGP), and IMO DCS.
Founded in 1862, ABS is a leading international classification organization devoted to promoting the security of life and property and preserving the natural environment through the development and verification of standards for the design, construction and operational maintenance of marine and offshore assets.
