For a long time, Ciaran Holden- Engineering Superintendent at the Africa Mercy, dreamed of having a fuel measuring / gauging annex saving system on-board the hospital ship. This month, his prayer was finally heard, thanks to the Global Durability Fund (GDF) – financial supporter, and KROHNE, supplying the system against a reduced tariff. The system will not only enable the Africa Mercy to operate more sustainable, but also makes the ship future compliance proof. Mercy Ships would like to thank both organizations for their generous offer. Their effort enables us to reach our Mercy Ships mission; to provide medical care for the world’s poorest in Africa.


EcoMATE® MRV improves energy efficiency reporting

  • High accuracy flowmeters
  • Simplified data input
  • Automatic calculation of emission and efficiency data
  • Automatic reporting
  • Compliant with the new EU regulation 2015/757 (MRV)

What is MRV?

MRV is a standardised method to produce an accurate CO2 emissions inventory, through the quantification of CO2 emissions. The key principles of the scheme are to generate robust results using a lean approach considering parameters which are already monitored during normal operations.

Why is this being implemented?

In 2010, the UNFCCC recognised that global warming must not exceed pre-industrial levels by more than 2 degrees centigrade and that, in order to ensure this, GHG emissions would need to be reduced to 50% less than 1990 levels by 2050.

Maritime transport is currently the only industry sector not addressed either through the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) or the EU’s Effort Sharing Decision on CO2, but represents 4% of total emissions and is recognised as the fastest growing sector in transportation.

A green step further

EcoMATE MRV enables shipowners to monitor all vessel types within the fleet with a single integrated tool. It accommodates both manual and online data entry to monitor operational data per voyage, conduct data quality checks and validations, and generate annual reports on a per vessel basis:

  • Configurable model with various fuel consumers
  • Fuel type definitions with emission factors
  • Measurements from mass flowmeters
  • Collect data from external systems
  • Create voyages with events
  • Automatic calculation of emissions and transport work
  • Logging of historical data
  • Full data integrity
  • Reports

Maersk Line PtP program

KROHNE Marine is proud to announce that we get to take part in the Maersk Line PtP program.​

Fuel economy is a key factor for all transportation, and there is no exception in the marine business.

Maersk Line has taken a leading role on the subject in the maritime world. Fuel expenses are typically the main cost in running a vessel. Maersk Line focuses strongly on the above, by planning for high quality measurements to ensure accurate fuel balance calculations. This way they seek truth about their fuel expenses from purchase to propeller (PtP). 

Maersk Line is the world’s largest ship owner. The company introduced us to their plans, and gave KROHNE Marine the challenge of participating in their ML-PtP program. Our task is to give Maersk Line the adequate means to find correct figures for their fuel balance calculations.

Scorpio and Hyundai MIPO Dockyards (HMD) select KROHNE Marine

For the HMD newbuildings being part of Scorpio’s continuous and extensive new tanker program, KROHNE Marine was selected as supplier of Cargo Monitoring System (CMS).

Deliveries from KROHNE Marine are tight and scheduled to start in April 2016. With the large number of ships and gauging devices, the contracts form an important part of the company’s production platform, and a challenge for the engineering team in charge of the deliveries. Currently signed contracts include 8 ships.

The contracts include cargo level radars with local display combined with a CCR computer system for a high level of redundancy on the monitoring side. OPTIWAVE 8300 C Marine radars will be installed on the cargo and slop tanks, with the addition of temperature and tank pressure gauging.

We are proud to have secured yet another contract from Scorpio and HMD. With these firm contracts KROHNE Marine has become a significant supplier for Scorpio fleet and will have delivered CMS for a total of 28 vessels of Scorpios MR fleet. KROHNE Marine looks forward to a continued and long term business relation with Scorpio and HMD.
