A Digital Foundation For CII
With simulation and data analysis tools, the technological groundwork has been built to enable shipowners and charterers to succeed in the CII era. And the sooner they start, the better off they will be, writes Ossi Mettälä, Sales Manager at NAPA Shipping Solutions.
For many in shipping, this year is reminiscent of old school times. The world’s commercial ships have started their first round of examinations under the IMO’s Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) regulation. While their official ratings won’t be formally calculated until the end of the year, the assessment is already well under way. Since the beginning of January, every sea passage, and every unit of carbon emitted, is building towards a vessel’s final score for the year.
