Shipowners, operators, managers and crews are advised to take immediate action to reduce emissions and prepare for compliance in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Ships can increase energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint in a number of ways. Energy-efficient tools, systems, and techniques are used to achieve this goal. All of this is necessary to meet the higher Carbon Intensity Index (CII) rating criteria, one of the latest regulations from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to meet its short-term climate goals.
EcoMATE, Krohne’s vessel performance system and fleet operations optimization software, is a complete solution for real-time monitoring of fuel consumption, emissions and bunkering. Regardless of vessel type, EcoMATE provides the complete solution needed to proactively improve CII rankings, fleet performance, bunkering and reporting while reducing company operating costs. The result is that shipping companies can fully optimize greener ship operations while complying with regulatory requirements.
Krohne recognizes that every organization is unique and has its own internal requirements. Therefore, the EcoMATE system was created with ease of use and flexibility in mind, while also providing a unified fleet solution for ship owners, managers and crew. EcoMATE can be accessed on-site or in real-time via the cloud, a shared digital platform that enhances the collaborative work experience. As a result, many major shipping companies have chosen EcoMATE as a trusted tailor-made solution. — trade arab news agency
