CLASSNK ENHANCES DECARBONISATION SUPPORT WITH EEXI COMPLIANCE TOOL

CLASSNK ENHANCES DECARBONISATION SUPPORT WITH EEXI COMPLIANCE TOOL

Tuesday, July 6, 2021 

ClassNK's support for the transition of shipping to zero-emission has addressed the strengthened GHG reduction targets in various countries and the framework for assessing GHG emissions introduced to MARPOL with a means of planning and managing GHG emissions in an organised manner.

ClassNK is working on the enhancement of its service portfolio to provide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management system certification, GHG emissions management tools, verification and evaluation of GHG emissions, and support on measures for GHG emissions reduction.

As an initial step, ClassNK has released its 'EEXI Simplified Planner', an assessment tool for the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI), which will apply from 2023. EEXI Simplified Planner provides an approximated calculation of a ship’s EEXI by inputting DWT and MCR, and identifies whether the value complies with the regulation. If it does not meet the requirement, the tool suggests the extent of engine power limitations for compliance, and supports decision making on how to comply with EEXI regulations. EEXI Simplified Planner, covering bulk carriers, gas carriers, tankers, container ships and ro-ro ships, is available on the EEXI page of ClassNK’s website.

Meanwhile, following the evaluation tool for the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rating that has already been released, ClassNK is now upgrading functions of its monitoring and reporting solution 'ClassNK MRV Portal' to support decision making for improving the CII rating.
