In January 2019 the International Maritime Organization (IMO)* adopted the legislation worldwide and the first time for submitting reports was 31 December 2019. The new regulation causes some extra administrative work and can be quite time-consuming. With Blueflow reporting is made easy, for example, you can create EU MRV compliant emission reports automatically, and the reports can be submitted electronically in just a few clicks. Not only do you save a lot of time, but you are also sure that the reports fulfil all the requirements and are based on correct data as the human factor is removed.

SOx compliance – think ahead
Scrubber installations are becoming increasingly present in the maritime industry as they are one way to comply with the 2020 global sulphur limit. In time, shipowners with scrubbers installed probably will be required to make an extended annual emissions report, including SOx and NOx emissions and quality of discharge water.
The Blueflow system can be used for monitoring the scrubber system by connecting sensors. All collected data will be transmitted automatically to the Blueflow system that will generate reports automatically on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis, ready for submitting to the supervisory authority.
Additionally, Blueflow sends alarms if emissions exceed setpoint limitations or if the bleed off quality in a closed loop system does not comply with standards. Blueflow provides a continuous monitoring solution for scrubber and filtration system conditions, chemical consumptions, etc.
