MTCC-Asia disseminated Pilot Project results (1)

24/12/2019

Two pilot projects, i.e. Uptake of ship energy efficient technologies and operations (PP EE) and Ship fuel oil consumption data collection and reporting (PP DC), are one of the most important components enshrined in the IMO-EU Joint Project: Capacity Building for Climate Mitigation in the Maritime Shipping Industry.

The overall purpose of implementing PP EE determined by MTCC-Asia is to promote the awareness of implementing the mandatory requirements on ship technical and operational measures for the uptake of energy efficiency, validate the availability and reliability of the machine learning method to determine the ship optimum trim, and facilitate the ships to effectively implement the mandatory requirements on ship technical and operational measures for the uptake of energy efficiency.

Likewise, the overall purpose of implementing PP DC determined by MTCC-Asia is to promote the awareness of implementing the IMO mandatory requirements on ship fuel oil consumption data collection in the shipping industry, support the region to effectively implement the IMO mandatory requirements on ship fuel oil consumption data collection through dissemination of knowledge and best practice, validate the availability and reliability of the collection method on ship fuel oil consumption data instead of emphasizing the quantity of ship fuel oil consumption data collection and ship number that the data is collected from, and facilitate the ships to effectively implement the mandatory requirements on ship fuel oil consumption data collection and reporting.

Over 100 thousand of sets of data has been successfully collected from 15 demonstration ships (5 container ships, 5 bulk carriers and 5 oil tankers, respectively) by MTCC-Asia during the two-year implementation of two pilot projects. The outputs including the guideline (printed and electronic versions), quick guidance (printed and electronic versions), video, E-reporting system and a USB stick which stores all of these outputs are produced based on the efforts and supports from over 120 shipping stakeholders. All of the outputs are to be delivered to seafarers on board in order to share the outputs of pilot projects with the shipping industry as much as possible.
