StormGeo, a leading provider in weather intelligence and decision support solutions for the shipping industry, today announced the launch of a new Carbon Intensity Indicator(CII) Dashboard that provides ship operators with the ultimate digital tool for calculating, reporting, and proactively improving the CII rankings of their fleet.
The new CII Dashboard is a key addition to StormGeo’s innovative software and services suite, s-Suite where it has been integrated into the s-Insight platform.
Developed in response to the industry need for reliable data and calculation methods for the accurate assessment of vessel carbon intensity, the new dashboard will play a vital role in helping ship operators to comply and stay ahead of new CII rules.
The CII is an operational efficiency indicator which measures how efficiently a ship transports goods or passengers in grams of CO2 emitted per cargo-carrying capacity and nautical mile based on its Annual Efficiency Ratio(AER). A CII rating value for all cargo, ro-pax and cruise vessels above 5000 GT must be calculated and reported after 1 January 2023 under mandatory, international rules adopted by the International Maritime Organization(IMO).
Under the new rules a CII rating on a scale of A to E is calculated, with A representing a very operationally efficient vessel. The operator of any vessels that hold a D or E rating, will be required to submit a plan that outlines how the vessel’s CII rating will be improved to a rating of C, or higher, as part of its Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan(SEEMP).
Unlike other CII calculators on the market, StormGeo’s s-Insight combines the provision of CII data for multiple vessels in an intuitive interface, with the expert advice from StormGeo on a consultancy basis on how to improve vessel carbon intensity rankings.
StormGeo’s new tool calculates attained and required CII ratings, and the deviation between the two, for a selected period using necessary vessel factors. Based on the preliminary CII rating, the tool also predicts the year of CII rating deterioration allowing the user to interpret how a vessel is currently ranked versus how it will be ranked in the future when CII rating limits are tightened. A three-day average trend element is also incorporated into the dashboard.
