BSM’s Fleet Performance Centre supports owners to meet upcoming EEXI and CII Compliance

With new IMO regulations on Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index  and Carbon Intensity Indicator taking effect in 2023, BSM’s extended Fleet Performance Centre is supporting ship owners’ efforts in reducing their vessels’ carbon impact.

To meet ambitious decarbonisation targets set out for the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization passed two regulations aimed at minimising the sector’s carbon emissions and environmental impact last year – the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index and the Carbon Intensity Indicator.

Accordingly, shipowners worldwide must take urgent action to comply with the new regulations or face operational restrictions or financial consequences. As a ship manager, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) is committed to play a part in global carbon reduction efforts. Through a holistic process of vessel performance monitoring, decarbonisation management, data collection and data analytics managed out of its own Fleet Performance Centre (FPC), BSM is helping owners navigate the complexities of these requirements that will come into force in 2023.

Preparing for EEXI and CII Requirements

Anil Jacob, BSM’s Head of Fleet Performance says: “These new regulations call for a more proactive approach towards managing carbon intensity while encouraging data transparency. Our aim is to enable our crews onboard, shipowners and charterers to make data driven decisions for most efficient vessel operations that reduces their environmental impact and comply with or even go beyond the requirements of international regulations.”

To meet these aims, BSM is rolling out a series of new technical consultancy services and solutions to help owners in complying with EEXI and CII requirements. In addition, BSM has strengthened vessel performance capabilities at its FPC to include a state-of-the-art, central Fleet Monitoring Centre (FMC). At this 24/7 real-time performance monitoring facility, major fuel consumption contributors such as the hull, machinery, route, and weather are tracked to ensure voyage optimisation, CII compliance and increase vessel energy efficiency. The FPC is engaging with key vessel charterers to establish communication protocols leading to optimisation of voyage planning and execution, which is critical for the CII ratings.
