We have covered the new MRV regulations before, but essentially, by 1 January 2019, all ships of 5,000 gt and above must submit a plan to receive a confirmation of compliance, from their flag states or delegated Recognised Organisations.
This requires the collection of fuel consumption data, and Bureau Veritas (BV) has introduced the first phase of My Fuel Consumption – a cloud-based and secure web application available for use on desktop, mobile and tablet. My Fuel Consumption is a digitised process leading through the various steps of IMO-DCS (declaration of fuel consumption) and EU MRV regulations (CO2 emissions).
Bureau Veritas vice president operational excellence, Laurent Hentges commented “The whole point of My Fuel Consumption is to make life simpler and easier for our clients, and therefore contribute to the reduction of emissions. It also helps them to get accessible, accurate and useful data as well as being a compliance tool.”
Phase 2 of My Fuel Consumption, planned for June, will enable owners to complete their declarations, for both IMO-DCS and EU-MRV, through one unique online form. Owners will also be able to follow-up progress of their reviews with Bureau Veritas using the app and then download their statement of compliance. This will be effective for their BV-classed ships and MRV ships contracted with Bureau Veritas.
