Danish shipowner and charterer Christiania Shipping has signed up to StormGeo’s carbon intensity indicator (CII) simulator to improve its environmental performance and decarbonise its operations.
The chemical ship-owning and chartering company Christiania Shipping currently operates 20 vessels around Europe, West Africa, and the Mediterranean. To improve the environmental performance of its fleet and stay compliant with industry regulations before they start in 2023, the company added StormGeo’s CII Simulator to its fleet performance management toolbox in June 2022.
The CII Simulator allows the user to monitor the current CII performance of the vessel and simulate different operational scenarios. It is part of StormGeo’s Environmental Performance Module under its s-Insight fleet performance management solution.
The CII Simulator will enable Christiania Shipping to monitor the compliance status for an entire year and forecast next year’s CII ratings based on potential future deterioration. The simulations reveal any deterioration that indicates the need for vessel retrofits or major vessel conversions, should operational measures prove insufficient.
“With the new Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rating scheme coming into play soon, we are determined to do our part in decarbonising the shipping industry,” said Rune Eriksen, chief operating manager at Christiania Shipping. “StormGeo’s CII Simulator not only gives us deep insights into the CII status of our individual vessels but also helps us make well-informed decisions on how we best can deploy our fleet. The system is very user-friendly and is being used across the organisation.”
“StormGeo is excited to have Christiania Shipping onboard and provide the tools they need to ensure regulatory compliance and reach their decarbonisation targets,” said Espen Martinsen, VP of sales at StormGeo. “We have long experience helping shipping companies improve their environmental performance and now offer a user-friendly solution that can help drive the green agenda in the shipping industry even further.”.
