Ship owner and charterer Christiania Shipping has signed with StormGeo to improve its environmental performance and decarbonise its operations with CII simulations.
Christiania Shipping currently operates 20 vessels in Europe, West Africa, and the Mediterranean. To improve the environmental performance of its fleet and stay compliant with industry regulations before they start in 2023, the company has added StormGeo’s CII Simulator to its fleet performance management toolbox.
Rune Eriksen, Chief Operating Manager, Christiania Shipping, said: “With the new Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rating scheme coming into play soon, we are determined to do our part in decarbonising the shipping industry. StormGeo’s CII Simulator not only gives us deep insights into the CII status of our individual vessels but also helps us make well-informed decisions on how we best can deploy our fleet. The system is very user-friendly and is being used across the organisation.”
Christiania Shipping already leverages StormGeo’s s-Insight log reporting tool for onboard data collection, automated ship-to-shore reporting systems, and comprehensive dashboards. With StormGeo’s CII Simulator, the company expands its capabilities, having what is considered a flexible and actionable tool to collaborate on operational deployment and achieve desirable CII ratings.
With StormGeo’s CII Simulator, Christiania Shipping is already able to monitor the compliance status for an entire year and forecast next year’s CII ratings based on potential future deterioration. The simulations easily reveal any deterioration that indicates the need for vessel retrofits or major vessel conversions, should operational measures prove insufficient.
Espen Martinsen, VP Sales, StormGeo said: “StormGeo is excited to have Christiania Shipping onboard and provide the tools they need to ensure regulatory compliance and reach their decarbonization targets. We have long experience helping shipping companies improve their environmental performance and now offer a user-friendly solution that can help drive the green agenda in the shipping industry even further.”
The CII Simulator allows the user to monitor the current CII performance of the vessel and to simulate different operational scenarios. The CII simulator is part of the Environmental Performance Module in StormGeo’s s-Insight, a fleet performance management solution that ensures vessel compliance and provides simple data reporting systems.
