The Australian Marine Environment Protection Association (AUSMEPA), in collaboration with RightShip, has developed a Maritime Emissions Portal (MEP) to provide improved ship emissions data to key shipping industry stakeholders.Read More
The MEP addresses the current lack of essential ship emissions data. Through satellite tracking and a big-data approach, the portal empowers all stakeholders including governments, regulators, the shipping sector and the general public, with improved knowledge of air emissions associated with shipping activities in port.
The MEP provides the maritime industry a unique opportunity to define priority projects aimed at reducing ship-source emissions. It provides users with the ability to observe changing air patterns throughout a port and city over the course of a day, week, month or a year.
Measuring the local air quality at a given point in time will effectively be measuring the impact and emissions of individual vessels that call on the port. With more than half of the world’s population now living in cities, the ability to track emissions from shipping through high resolution air quality data will empower citizens, industry and regulators to make informed decisions to create healthier, more resilient cities.
We have partnered with Oceaneering PortVision as the system developer to bring the MEP concept into reality through an interactive platform. RightShip and AUSMEPA welcome the opportunity to work with ports and the wider maritime industry in all stages of MEP development and rollout.
The MEP prototype is complete, and we are currently working with some Australian ports to trial the platform and assist us to develop its functions in accordance with industry needs.
