The Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) is a measure introduced by the IMO to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from ships. In this context, the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) indicates the specific CO2 emissions of cargo ships.
The Energy Efficiency Design Index is shown in a diagram as a baseline for new cargo ships (tankers, bulk carriers, and container ships) depending on their deadweight tonnage in tdw and must not be exceeded. This baseline is adjusted to technical progress at regular intervals, e.g., newer ships will operate with lower emissions. The other ship types, such as RoRo and ferry ships, cruise and other passenger ships, will be taken into account later, as will the large group of special ships (tugs, supply vessels, fishing vessels, excursion ships) since the deadweight tonnage plays no or only a minor role here.
At FleetMon, we have always been dedicated to innovative solutions for the digitalization of the maritime industry. Our emissions calculation allows ship owners, charterers, and shipping companies to easily retrieve their vessels’ emissions and quickly forward them to the relevant authorities.
The Emission calculation option is part of our Business and Enterprise Plan.
Select the ship of interest to access the vessel detail page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on “Emission Log.” Now choose the required period, and you will see the vessel’s CO2 emission at a glance. Values such as the vessel type, speed, draught, course, and distance are required for calculating the CO2 emission for a vessel.
