ABS adds Environmental Monitor to digital platform

Classification society ABS has added a new Environmental Monitor to its My Digital Fleet risk management platform, which will draw on a range of data sources, including vessel routing, waste stream, operations, and emissions data, to provide transparent reporting of vessel fuel usage and other environmental parameters.

The system can monitor and track overall fleet or vessel-specific environmental categories, such as emissions, garbage, waste, and consumables data, and highlight Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on garbage, waste, and consumables metrics, such as disposal methods and categories, water production efficiency, and consumption efficiency by voyage.

Calculations can be performed within the application in accordance with the Environmental Ship Index and Poseidon Principles, and individual vessel emissions profiles can be selected for viewing, including total emissions across laden and ballast voyages, carbon intensity, emissions per transport, emissions per distance, and total emissions per consumer.

“Meeting IMO sustainability objectives is a significant challenge and ABS is committed to supporting the industry on this journey. ABS Environmental Monitor is the latest example of how we are applying digital technologies to assist operators in understanding how their assets may be affected by the rapidly evolving landscape of global environmental regulation,” said Georgios Plevrakis, ABS Director, Global Sustainability.

“A comprehensive solution to monitor sustainability related key performance indicators, ABS Environmental Monitor can help operators make data-informed decisions in light of these new, complex reporting schemes.”
