New version in response to the new Common Structural Rules
ClassNK has released PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) Ver. 2.5.0 in response to the new IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers (CSR BC & OT).
CSR BC & OT, which harmonizes requirements found in both existing Common Structural Rules for bulk carriers and double hull oil tankers, was adopted by the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) Council in December 2013, partially amended in 2014, and applies to bulk carriers over 90m in length and double hull oil tankers over 150m in length contracted for construction on or after 1 July 2015.
Based on requests from ship designers, ClassNK developed PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) with a built-in strong design support function that is completely different to any other software to date. ClassNK released software in February in response to the new rules including the latest amendment, but released the new PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) Ver. 2.5.0 which features even stronger functionality. As a non-profit society that is committed to supporting the advancement of the maritime industry, ClassNK offers PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) to all of its clients completely free of charge.
The main features of PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR) Ver. 2.5.0 are as follows:
