Bureau Veritas is working with GT Green Technologies with the goal of providing approval in principle (AiP) for their AirWing technology.
he AiP from Bureau Veritas will be an important step forward for the design of the AirWing20 system, which has also been awarded funding by the UK Government’s Department for Transport, through its Transport Research Innovation Grant (TRIG) program.
By working closely with Bureau Veritas and other commercial partners such as PEI TECH LLC, GT Green Technologies is lining up to deliver the first AirWing20 unit for installation on a vessel in 2024.
Further news on a major partnership with a prominent shipowner for the inaugural installation of the AirWing20 system is expected to be announced shortly by GT Green Technologies. George Thompson, CEO of GT Green Technologies, stated that this collaboration solidifies the company’s commitment to delivering the best-in-class solution to the market.
The classification process is an important step in the technical validation of this solution to address compliance with applicable class rules, notations and other regulations, and helps to pave the way for the next phases of development.
