No easy task. But with the right tools—like RightShip’s Maritime Emissions Portal (MEP)—ports can transform emissions and air quality monitoring in-port and in the surrounding areas.
A first-of-its-kind digital solution, MEP harnesses the world’s largest and most comprehensive maritime vessel database to give ports and terminals unparalleled insights into vessel-based emissions and air quality in-port. With an intuitive and user-friendly design, the tool uses AIS location data and innovative heatmap and zoning technology to highlight problem areas with pinpoint accuracy.
Here are five ways RightShip’s Maritime Emissions Portal can transform in-port emissions and air quality monitoring.
Benchmark your current performance and track progress over time.
MEP allows ports to benchmark their emissions and air quality performance and track this overtime. Benchmarking provides valuable insights into areas that need improvement, setting a baseline against which ports and terminals can measure progress, helping to achieve short-, medium-, and long-term goals.
Using innovative heatmap technology to see problem areas clearly.
The portal uses innovative heatmapping technology to give a visual representation of emissions hotspots and trends over time. This is important in identifying areas of concern and assessing the effectiveness of implemented measures. Heatmapping allows ports and terminals to focus their efforts on specific zones for targeted emissions reduction initiatives.
Rigorous and continually updated datasets
MEP combines Automatic Identification System (AIS) data with RightShip’s comprehensive database of maritime vessels and emissions insights. Data updates ensure ports and terminals can make informed decisions and adapt to changing circumstances.
Local community impact
The Maritime Emissions Portal considers the impact of vessel emissions on the local community, measuring 16 key air emissions within your area of interest. This helps port operators to meet regulatory requirements but also build trust with their local communities by showcasing efforts to minimize the environmental impact of maritime operations.
Create a solution bespoke for your port
MEP can be set up for any port, or for individual terminals to monitor and analyse up to 16 different emission types – enabling lasting advances in emission management and reduction.
