Polarcus has recently completed a comprehensive verification process of its emissions monitoring system in collaboration with specialists from DNV GL, the international certification body and classification society.
A weeklong verification process involving experts from DNV GL and Polarcus was recently completed where Polarcus’ procedures, methodology, data and calculations, software architecture, and technical documentation related to the company’s emissions monitoring and reporting were audited and reviewed, Polarcus said.
“This successful audit has led to an expansion of the company’s already extensive library of environmental leadership qualifications,” Polarcus said in a statement.
On completion of the audit, Polarcus has been accredited with five new DNV GL qualifications for calculation methodology of; Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI) for all greenhouse gas emissions, seascape noise, support vessel emissions data, multi-survey models, and modelled, live and actual emission profiles.
Commenting on the achievement, Drew St. Peter, Arctic and Sustainability Manager at Polarcus, said: “This new accreditation, combined with the environmental qualifications previously earned for our DNV GL Triple-E(TM) rated fleet, uniquely positions us to calculate our global emissions footprint. Understanding emissions is key to implementing appropriate mitigations for sustainable operations.”
Polarcus notes that its procedures, methods, data and calculations, software architecture, and technical documentation for CO2, SOx and NOx emissions were previously verified and approved by DNV GL in 2013.
