StormGeo CII simulator used by Danish shipping company
By Becky Schultz16 November 2022
Danish company Christiana Shipping has developed a trade niche as a specialized chemical shipowner and chartering company, with a fleet of 20 vessels and operations in Europe, West Africa and the Mediterranean. In an effort to improve environmental performance and remain compliant with industry regulations in advance of 2023, the company added StormGeo’s CII simulator to its fleet in June 2022.
“With the new Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) rating scheme coming into play soon, we are determined to do our part in decarbonizing 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 organization.”
Using the simulator, Christiania Shipping is able 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, StormGeo explained. In addition, the simulator allows the user to simulate different operational scenarios.
The CII simulator is part of the Environmental Performance Module in StormGeo’s s-Insight, a fleet performance management solution that ensures vessel compliance and provides simple data reporting systems.
Christiania Shipping also uses StormGeo’s s-Insight | Log reporting tool for onboard data collection, automated ship-to-shore reporting systems and comprehensive dashboards.
