Textual note taken from MIS MARINE dated December 13, 2023
In a bid to support our clients with their evolving and changing marine assurance needs, the latest updates to our geo-compliance further supports a 360 view of risk management.
The following developments now provide complete transparency and the ability to calculate risk exposure through the latest data applications and maritime technology:
Carbon Intensity Model (CIM)
MIS Marine’s own data model, CIM addresses limitations with the industry-standard Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). It assigns a grade to a vessel that equates to carbon emitted per tonne of cargo carried per mile.
CIM is calculated using various sources of particulars data, along with operational information from geospatial data and weather/tide data. This allows CIM to be calculated precisely for a specific timeframe, unlike CII which only provides a value for the complete last year of operation.
Emission Control Areas (ECA)
Our ECAs layer now displays all current ECAs on the map. Used in conjunction with a vessel’s Navigation History, the map will display where a vessel has entered an ECA.
The Ports Visits layer displays all preconfigured port locations (based on LOCODE), providing visibility of port locations and span within the vicinity of a vessel’s Navigation History. Pre-loaded ‘geo-fences’ visually identify boundaries of each port. If a vessel is identified to have crossed this boundary, the port area and boundary will be displayed on the map.
The Adhoc Zones layer highlights and notifies of any visits to areas of interest (sanctioned and/or suspicious locations or countries) on the map. This list can be amended as requirements and concerns change.
The Dark Activity layer transposes periods of a voyage where the Automatic Identification System (AIS) was disabled on a vessel’s navigation history. Key details will be attainable, including the location and duration of the event, the projected range of possible travel while “offline”, and any change of draught.
This information provides key details for targeted questioning on potential dark activity, such as whether the vessel had the opportunity to make an unscheduled Vessel Stop in a sanctioned country or the opportunity for an STS transfer during the timeframe.
