BSM's holistic approach to vessel performance and decarbonisation

Every vessel is important to us in terms of performance and energy efficiency. We have a dedicated Fleet Performance Centre to improve the efficiency of our clients' fleet through a holistic approach including:

  • Vessel performance monitoring and its management
  • Performance optimisation
  • Decarbonisation solutions
  • Digital solutions development

Staying Abreast of Emission Regulations: EEXI, CII and EU ETS

BSM has developed an Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) calculator to compute the required and attained EEXI values, allowing us to classify the fleet into compliant and non-compliant vessels.

Through our fleet-wide digital twin database, BSM guides clients with non-compliant vessels with solutions to address compliance gaps.

We help ship owners achieve Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) compliance through holistic vessel performance monitoring, combined with advanced analytics and software.

We are committed to play our part in global carbon reduction efforts. BSM firmly believes maximal fuel efficiency and reduced carbon emissions will provide a competitive advantage for our clients, especially in the charter market. Therefore, we decided to go beyond CII regulations and set our own goals for CII performance.

The inclusion of the maritime sector into the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) is a done deal and will be introduced from 2024. Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) is developing solutions to help clients navigate the complexities of the upcoming requirements and ensure a smooth transition into EU ETS.


BSM’s Smart Maintenance (SM) project has been initiated to increase crew safety, asset reliability and lifetime, reduce OPEX, increase Time Between Overhauls (TBOs) and availability of spare parts. This is done by using state-of-the-art technologies such as vibration analysis, drain oil analysis, smart glasses, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machinery fault detection techniques, maintenance process monitoring tools, but also class notations and collaboration with original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
