ABS and Chevron Shipping Company LLC took the first step in a pioneering digital fleet management journey with ABS Smart notations for vessels.
ABS joined forces with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to deliver Korea’s first end-to-end 3D model-based Class process, encompassing engineering and survey.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forcefully shown the importance of digitalization and new technologies within the shipping industry, with remote surveys already taking place. Yet, as the industry is now entering the digital world, the challenges are obvious, forcing the maritime sector to rapidly adapt to the smart era.
In a recently launched advisory, the US-based classification society ABS provides information about autonomous functions in the shipping industry and explains what the Concept of Operations (ConOps) document is and how it can be used for autonomous operations.
ABS announced that in an industry first, it is able to conduct almost all classification annual surveys remotely on eligible vessels, after moving to further expand its remote offerings. ABS launched ten remote survey options, with an overall of 28 surveys and audits able to be conducted remotely.
The US-based classification society, ABS recently informed that successfully completed a successful pilot project using 3D digital models for class surveys. Through this initiative, ABS becomes the first in Industry that accepts 3D models for class surveys.
The US-based classification society ABS recently released advisory concerning autonomous functions in the maritime and the offshore field. In fact, the “ABS Advisory on Autonomous Functionality” goals to boost these functions and its major regulatory developments.
3D printing of metallic components has significant potential for maritime and offshore industry applications. In this context, the online procurement firm in marine equipment, ShipParts.com, has signed a research collaboration agreement with Singapore’s Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), and the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) with the aim to prove standards for the certification of metallic components produced by NYP’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC) for maritime application.
ABS Group recently launched an e-learning training platform in order further develop educational tools and provide professional training courses to technical crewmembers around the global. In fact, through this new training initiative, ABS goals to boost shipping industry’s operational challenges.
Common Structural Rules Software LLC (CSRS), a joint venture company formed by ABS and Lloyd’s Register (LR), has launched updates with new functionality added to both the Prescriptive Analysis (PA) and FE Analysis (FEA) applications.
