ABS Environmental Monitor forms part of the class society’s ABS My Digital Fleet risk management platform. The cloud-based application provides reports based on emissions, operation and waste stream data, allowing owners to monitor and improve vessel performance against sustainability and environmental criteria.
The technology has been chosen for 31 of Diana Shipping’s vessels. The company had a fleet of 37 vessels as of February 26, according to its website.
According to ABS, ABS Environmental Monitor allows owners to monitor and track overall fleet or vessel-specific environmental categories, such as emissions, garbage, waste and consumables data and track performance against KPIs in similar areas.
Owners can also view the vessel emissions profile, including total emissions across laden and ballast voyages, carbon intensity, emissions per transport, emissions per distance, and total emissions per consumer.
Scrubber system performance reporting is also integrated, and calculations can be performed in-line with the Poseidon Principles and Environmental Ship Index.
“Through advanced data analysis, this digital solution provides unprecedented levels of insight into an individual asset’s environmental performance, or that of an entire fleet,” said Kash Mahmood, ABS Senior Vice President, Digital Solutions.
“As a prudent fleet owner and a participant in the global shipping industry, Diana Shipping Inc. is committed to the proper stewardship of our environment. We are pleased to have the cooperation and resources of ABS and DSS as we pursue the goal of achieving a more sustainable future,” said Semiramis Paliou, CEO of Diana Shipping Inc.
