Hapag-Lloyd prepares for MRV

Industry Database

DNV GL and Hapag-Lloyd have initiated a joint project to verify the ship owner’s readiness for upcoming EU emission-monitoring regulations.

The monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regulations, which are currently being finalised, will progressively integrate maritime emissions into the EU policy for reducing greenhouse gases.

This verification project is intended to ensure that Hapag-Lloyd becomes the world’s first MRV-ready certified ship owner. It covers the complete process of emission data monitoring and reporting, including validation of the monitoring-reporting software to be used on board Hapag-Lloyd’s containership fleet.

Richard von Berlepsch, senior director ship management, Hapag-Lloyd, said: “Tracking and improving our emissions is important, not only for us but for our customers. We are always trying to take steps to anticipate upcoming regulations and be prepared with a compliance solution.”

The project is in line with the requirements of the DNV GL Environmental Passport-Operation – a programme to provide certified operational emission inventory addressing all emissions covered by MARPOL. The MRV-Ready certification process reveals possible gaps as ship ownera prepare for the new regulations.

MRV regulation (No 525/2013) seeks to create a legal framework for collecting and publishing data on CO2 emissions from all large ships (over 5,000 gross tonnes) using EU ports. Ship owners will have to monitor and report the verified emission data as well as providing information to determine energy efficiency.

The regulation is expected to be finalised this year and could enter into force in 2018.
