Classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) has introduced the first phase of My Fuel Consumption, a tool which helps shipowners comply with new regulations for energy efficiency management.
My Fuel Consumption makes compliance easy, with a digitised process throughout the various steps of IMO-DCS (declaration of fuel consumption) and EU MRV regulations (CO2 emissions).
It is a cloud-based and secure web application available for use on desktop, mobile and tablet.
Phase 1 of My Fuel Consumption, enables owners to fill in and submit their Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plans (SEEMPs) Part II as requested by IMO-DCS for their Bureau Veritas classed ships, while tracking the review progress on-line and downloading the confirmation of compliance once complete.
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. This will be effective for BV-classed ships and MRV ships contracted with Bureau Veritas.
“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,” says Laurent Hentges, Vice President Operational Excellence, Bureau Veritas.
“It also helps them to get accessible, accurate and useful data as well as being a compliance tool.”
