Korean Register Launches New GHG Data Management Tool
The Korean Register (KR) has established a new greenhouse gas (GHG) online data management system with the aim of helping shipowners comply with GHG regulations.
Named GHG Emission Authentic Reporting System (KR GEARs), the tool supports data collection plan development, data transmission and data report creation.
According to KR, it can also enhance a fleet’s operational efficiency management as well as support ship operators’ fuel oil sulphur management.
By uploading the collected data directly on the KR GEARs website, users can automatically create their EU MRV Emission Report and IMO DCS Fuel Consumption report, KR said. Other options offered include the calculation of a vessel’s energy efficiency operational index and the creation of a ship implementation plan.
“KR GEARs has enhanced our customer services even further by supporting shipping companies regulatory reporting requirements in an effective and intelligent way,” Jeong-kie, Lee, Chairman and CEO, KR, said.
