ENVIRONMENTAL & ENERGY AUDIT

IMO continues to set and evolve global standards for Environmental Protection and Performance of ships. Moreover, new domestic and international environmental policies become more and more stringent. As such, shipowners, builders and operators worldwide are called to stay on top of all environmental requirements and understand the impact of these measures on maritime transport.

Energy and Environmental Audits for this reason is the tool used to ensure compliance with subject regulations, insure the effective and smooth operation of ships and the organization and promote healthy growth by setting new goals and constantly improving internal and operational procedures.

SHIP ENERGY AUDIT (SEA)

Ship Energy audits are performed onboard or remotely to evaluate current state of the vessel in terms of energy consumption and determine the most cost-effective measures to improve energy efficiency onboard and onshore.

Each Energy Audit is ship-specific and the process includes:

  1. Review of SEEMP Part I & II considering best practices for fuel-efficient operations;
  2. Review of Calculated Indexes as set by current legislation (EEDI, EEXI, CII);
  3. Review of all records, certificates, logs, reports and assessments that relate to Prevention of Air Pollution and evaluate compliance with the requirements of MARPOL Annex VI;
  4. Εvaluation of the inputs and outputs streams of the ship’s energy balance system and estimation of losses;
  5. Proposed measures for fuel saving, implementation and monitoring.

ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE AUDIT (ECA)

Environmental Compliance Audits are performed onboard or remotely to ensure compliance with the Company’s Safety & Environmental Policies as well as the Requirements of National and International Legislation. The Audit program is structured in three main phases:

  1. Phase I, is a pre-Audit Phase involving the gathering and review of all records, reports, logs, training material, monitoring data and assessments;
  2. Phase II is the Investigation phase, it includes but it’s not limited to a series of checks involving the evaluation of operating equipment and processes, physical inspection of equipment, crew competence and awareness;
  3. Phase III, is the Reporting phase, it includes the qualitative and quantitative analysis of all deliverables, reporting to the client of all findings and recommendations and setting follow-up actions which are to be implemented into the existing monitoring plan of the ship and tracked.
