GTT Group company Ascenz Marorka has been granted Type Approval certification for its shaft power limitation (ShaPoLi) solution by classification society Bureau Veritas.
The solution helps ship-owners and operators comply with the IMO regulations aimed at curbing GHG emissions and reducing ship carbon intensity by 40% by 2030. This is the second certification from a major classification society, which confirms that Ascenz Marorka’s ShaPoLi system complies with IMO resolution MEPC 335(76) and can be used on vessels subject to EEXI overridable power limitation. The solution monitors propeller shaft power and signals an alert in the wheelhouse if it exceeds the EEXI calculated maximum power. The system logs the periods where the limit was exceeded and enables crew to give comments.
The solution can be connected to the Ascenz Marorka’s online platform, therefore providing real-time monitoring and optimisation capabilities to users both onboard and ashore. These features are believed to make Ascenz Marorka’s ShaPoLi a unique solution on the market.
Anouar Kiassi, Ascenz Marorka MD, said: “We are very proud of this new recognition from a major classification which contributes to make our innovative ShaPoLi solution accessible to more vessels. Beyond regulatory compliance monitoring, we offer our customers a comprehensive suite of modules to help them reduce their emissions and optimize the performance of their vessels”.
