The new Bluetracker MRV module gains "MRV ready" certificate by DNV GL

Bluetracker introduces a new MRV module to the market that is tailored to the EU regulation "Monitoring, Reporting and Verification" (MRV) that applies to all ships of more than 5,000 GT that enter EU ports as of January 1, 2018. It  has been declared “MRV Ready”, following a Validation GAP Analysis Audit conducted by the classification society DNV GL. 

The new Bluetracker module generates MRV-compliant emission reports, whereby the incoming data is continuously verified in real time in terms of data plausibility and completeness. Bluetracker thus provides support to ensure a high level of data quality and ensures the best possible consistency of the MRV reports.

Monitoring plan to be submitted by 30th August 2017

If shipowners and ship managers submit the ship-specific MRV monitoring plan to an independent verifier of their choice for approval by no later than August 30, 2017, they will not only have had to choose between two methods of CO2 data collection. Among other things, the MRV monitoring plan includes a description of the method for ensuring data quality that is as uninterrupted and fautless as possible.

The MRV regulation attaches special importance to the data quality of the annual CO2 emission reports: Starting 2019, verifiers can reject the reports due to incomplete or inaccurate data and consequently delay the issuance of a Document of Compliance (DoC). This could result in restrictions being imposed against a ship if no corresponding DoC can be provided during a port state control check.

Data validation and plausibility check

To avoid the complex preparation or subsequent processing of the operational data compiled from ship operations during the reporting period, the creators of Bluetracker have integrated an advanced Data Validation Engine in the MRV module. This means that the incoming data can be automatically checked on land in real time for physical and ship-specific limitations, as well as for machine characteristics, consumption curves and hull performance models. In addition, the reports are checked for their chronological order and consistency to ensure there are no time gaps or overlapping entries. An automatic notification function alerts the crew and superintendent ashore if errors exist.

The Data Validation Engine includes automatic self-logging. The resulting detailed messages about calculation and validation rules which are generated make it possible to determine the source of an error by means of a drill-down procedure.

The utmost consistency of the reporting data also depends on the type of data collection and whether a pre-validation check already occurred upon input, such as is the case with the manual reporting tool of Bluetracker.

In addition to the manual and automatic Bluetracker data collection systems, the web-based Bluetracker MRV module can also be combined with other reporting solutions in which the data is exchanged via a standard interface. It is therefore unnecessary to replace an existing reporting solution.
