ABS Group of Companies, Inc. (ABS Group) and digital transformation leader Atos announced plans to develop the industry’s first full-service Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) cyber security solution to reduce cyber risk across the global marine and offshore energy supply chain.
ABS launched the ‘Shuttle Tanker Advisory’ report, explaining what the shuttle tankers are, where do they operate, the challenges that they could face in different regions, their design, other machinery equipment, while also focuses on safety and human factors.
During an ABS event at the London International Shipping Week in early September, experts highlighted that the shipping industry needs to develop new maritime technologies that will assist in meeting its targets towards decarbonization by 2050.
ABS, issued approval in principle (AIP) to the conceptual design of carbon fiber LNG fuel tanks, inspired by techniques common in the space industry, exploring whether composite technology, which is lighter and more cost-effective, offers a competitive alternative in LNG as marine fuel designs, principally for short sea shipping.
During the GastTech event, ABS launched an LNG cargo ready notation for Ethane Carriers, confirming that an LNG carrier is capable of being modified into trade LNG cargoes in the future. The project is a joint development between ABS and GTT.
ABS and the American Ethane Company (AEC) have teamed up on a project aimed to design and develop a next generation fleet of Ultra Large Ethane Carriers (ULEC). Under the shipping project, AEC and its partners will build, own and operate a fleet of ULECs to transport 7.2 MTPA of US ethane to China.
ABS and Samsung Heavy Industries will join forces on the use of digital technologies, aiming to streamline designing, building, and classing assets in a joint development project signed on September 17. The JDP regards 3D digital disclosure, data exchange, and the use of analytics to support the new construction process and pilot the survey of the future.
ABS, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hyundai Global Service have agreed on a framework for exchanging of Digitalization and Decarbonization concepts to implement to existing and future designs. This new framework will be an industry first D&D ecosystem between class, shipyard and ship service company.
South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) has secured an Approval in Principle (AIP) by ABS for the design of what it is claimed as the world’s largest Ethane/Ethylene Carrier.
ABS and South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) signed on a joint development project to collaborate on a next generation LNG carrier with advanced air lubrication and smart capabilities. The agreement was signed on 17 September.
