Pioneers in LNG discussed LNG projects and how alliances, partnerships, and technology are driving the transistion to LNG as fuel at the Nor-Shipping event which took place in Oslo, Norway, 30 May – 2 June 2017.
A panel discussion took place at Nor-Shipping 2017 in Oslo earlier in June to explore new ambitions for developing the ocean space, combining the growth prospects and perspectives on global governance
Despite MLC guarantees seafarers the right to decent work conditions, accommodation, food, and medical care, amongst other standards, seafarers can be vulnerable to exploitation and abuse when working in isolated conditions, Mission to Seafarers said.
China Merchants Industry Holding and DNV GL signed a strategic cooperation agreement during Nor-Shipping last week focusing on advancing shipbuilding in the gas carrier, offshore and special vessel segments. The two companies will work together to optimize construction processes and quality control, in order to develop vessels that meet the varying requirements of these markets.
Satellite AIS data services provider ExactEARTH launched at Nor Shipping 2017 a service known as exactVIEW RT and powered by Harris, which claims to be the ‘world’s first global persistent real-time Satellite AIS service’.
Among many agreements signed during Nor Shipping 2017 this week, DNV GL also partnered with Samsung Heavy Industries to develop new designs for LNG carriers. The Joint development project will focus on the development of two 30K LNG carrier designs, one with membrane type LNG tanks and one with type-C (pressurized) LNG tanks.
A large-scale rectangular marine Scrubber was unveiled by MHI and MHPS at the “Nor-Shipping 2017” maritime trade show in Oslo, Norway. The companies claim that the adoption of a rectangular box-shape configuration is a ‘world’s first’ and is able to offer outstanding ease of installation in small spaces and superlative emissions treatment for high-output engines.
At the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo, partners of the “Green Corridor” joint industry project (JIP) presented their plan for developing a LNG-fuelled Newcastlemax design bulker operating on the Australia–China iron ore and coal trade route. The vessel is currently in the process of receiving Approval in Principle (AiP) from DNV GL.
Nowadays, there is a continued need for ship designs to evolve to provide further alternatives to traditional oil-fuelled designs. As new building orders in larger size ranges are expected, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Lloyd’s Register announced at Nor-Shipping 2017 a joint development project to design 180k DWT class bulk carriers.
At Nor-Shipping 2017, NYK and DNV GL presented the first results of an ongoing maritime data center pilot project. The data center collects operational data from NYK vessels on DNV GL’s recently launched Veracity industry data platform, for monitoring vessel performance and condition-based maintenance schemes.
