27 Mar '13 Are you tracking EEOI?
The introduction of SEEMP at the start of this year has brought an increase in requests for automatic tracking of EEOI.
It seems to us that many companies have been following the IMO guidelines and settled on the Energy Efficieny Operational Indicator as a performance indicator of choice for energy management.
There are two variable factors in the EEOI calculation that are vessel and company specific.
Cargo type changes, of course, depending on the type of vessel. It can be quantified in many ways, including head counts (people), TEUs, tons or car lane meters in the case of Ro-Ro ships.
The rolling average EEOI is supposed to be calculated during a statistically relevant number of voyages or period of time. In this case it is important to test your calculations in order to find the right balance between volatility caused by ballast voyages and averaging out all changes that include rolling averages that are too long.
Marorka Online is ideal for tracking ship KPIs, including EEOI. Using data logging and voyage reports, we have all the information we need to compile EEOI graphs and calculations for all your ships. We have based our implementation on the EEOI guidelines from IMO (MEPC.1/Circ.684 – PDF) and designed it to be adjustable for ship cargo types and rolling averages.
We consider it to be our mission to simplify the lives of superintendents and crew when it comes to data logging. By utilizing automated data logging and delivering measurements to our cloud-based Marorka Online system, we can save you a great deal of time and improve energy management awareness.
