StormGeo and ClassNK mark significant collaboration to advance maritime decarbonization

Shipping companies that use StormGeo’s s-Insight platform will be able to share their validated emissions data to ClassNK via API, for a seamless verification process.

This process enables shipping companies to maximize their reporting accuracy and accelerate their decarbonization strategy, according to regulations.

Speaking on the partnership, Executive Vice President Sales, Espen Martinsen said, “This new agreement to share data for MRV, EUETS, and broader decarbonization initiatives is not only a significant stride towards advancing maritime decarbonization but is also a testament to our shared commitment to operational excellence and high data quality.”

“We would also like to thank our partners, Wisdom Marine Group and the Turkish Shipowner Association, whose contributions have been pivotal in reaching this milestone” he added.

Class NK, one of the world’s largest classification societies, is actively engaged in a range of activities and services within the shipping industry. These activities involve the promotion of the protection of human life and property at sea, as well as the marine environment.

Dr. Yoshiya Yamaguchi, Executive Vice President, ClassNK, said, "We expect that this API integration will lead to improved convenience for the clients. ClassNK will continue to contribute to maritime decarbonization by fostering collaborations transcending industry boundaries."
