Final Event

eShip Final Event

This is an excellent opportunity not only to assess the level of achievement of the project’s goals during the past two years but also to define next steps for the commercialisation of the eShip platform (www.eship.pt) as a web-based application…

Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for New Ships

During the MEPC 62 (July 2011), the IMO adopted the Energy efficiency design index for new ships which establishes an energy efficiency identity for all the new-built ships since 2013. The IMO utilises a specific formula that estimates the CO2…

ESG Metrics

Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII)

Is an operational measure of how efficiently a vessel transports its cargo, essentially in grams of Co2 emitted by (i) cargo-carrying capacity and (ii) nautical mile. The CII calculation is essentially more straightforward, albeit more complex when it comes to…

ESG Metrics

Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI)

The EEXI provides a framework for determining the efficiency of the design of a vessel by expressing its energy efficiency / emissions performance. EEXI regulation relates to existing ships, but each ship type has different factors to consider (the strictest…

ESG Metrics

ESG Metrics belong to the set of future development of eShip

The importance of these metrics relates to: The ENVIRONMENTAL side, because there are increasingly stringent requirements related to emissions from ships The SOCIAL point of view, for the areas of crew well-being, as well as health and safety on board,…

Is it time to reset commercial benchmarks? For instance, should demurrage even be done way with? Should any benefit in fuel consumption savings be shared between the Owner and the Charterer? Is it finally time to move away from NYPE…

Zero Carbon Emissions metrics. The IMO (International Maritime Organisation) has set a target for reducing annual GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions in shipping by at least 40% by 2030 and targeting a 70% reduction by 2050. The IMO, via its MEPC…

Digital Disruption (reference video streaming / Uber, as heavily disrupted segments) is a phrase used in the technology industry to invoke a fear factor amongst players that is not necessarily real. In shipping, digital disruption is not happening. Why? Is…

Trends From Posidonia

Drivers for digitalisation in shipping:(1) Decarbonisation is driving both regulatory as well as non-regulatory issues;(2) the Sea Cargo Charter and Poseidon Principles are equally a driver of digitalisation, together with the need to overcome supply chain inefficiencies;(3) there is a…

Ship-to-shore today has far greater visibility, as autonomous vessel adoption sets its sights on 2035 (common view), triggered by data now available onshore. Currently vessel data is drawn off by the office, where the mainstream decisions and optimisations are decided…
