Under the terms of the agreement, Korean Register will provide NTUA students its award-winning software for free, involving SeaTrust-HullScan, a program designed to analyze the structural strength of a ship following the KR’s Rules and the harmonized CSR.
Moreover, KR will also share a software database of all the IMO conventions, codes, resolutions and circulars named as KR-CON, while offer full training practices based on both software packages.
We are pleased to share our technology and expertise with the students and researchers at NTUA. They are likely to use KR’s software programmes when they enter maritime business in the future, but now it will be more familiar to them and will strongly support their studies and research processes in the interim.
...said Joo-sung Park, the head of KR’s Europe headquarters.
Behind the coordination of the MoU was the Ambassador Soo-suk Lim, Embassy of the Republic of Korea to the Hellenic Republic, while the agreement is from now considered part of a wider ongoing collaboration and exchange of maritime technology among Greece and South Korea.
For the records, this is not the first time that Korean Register shares its SeaTrust-HullScan software.
Namely, since its launch back in 2012, more than 22 universities from allover the world are using the software, as it also used in Korean-based shipyards, research institutes and design companies.
Concluding, NTUA is the oldest higher education institutions in Greece and considered to be the most prestigious one for engineering.
