NYK Line, the classification society Class NK and the power systems provider IHI Power Systems inked an agreement in order to set the world’s first ammonia-fueled tugboat into practical use.
ClassNK released its “Guidelines for Digital Smart Ship”, which stipulates the procedures for class notations for ships with advanced digital technology.
2020 is proving to be a crucial year in the development of technologies and initiatives relating to maritime autonomous surface ships (MASS). In what is seen as the point of departure for regulators, the IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee is set to conclude an initial scoping exercise into the application of IMO regulations in the context of MASS.
ClassNK, leading classification society, launched the second edition of its “Guidelines for Designing Cyber Security Onboard Ships” concerning newbuilding designs targeting shipyards and ship-building owners.
Recently, ClassNK has received several reports for incidents that sea water leakage was detected from distance piece attached to hull on SOx scrubber discharge water line. The design and possible problems are similar for all vessel with scrubber installations.
ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have carried out a joint feasibility study on 3D model based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.
In line with an increased shift to environmentally-friendly solutions as a pathway to decarbonization, ClassNK announced it is joining the International Windship Association (IWSA), which is working to promote wind as a viable propulsion option for commercial vessels.
ClassNK published guidelines concerning autonomous ships and operations aiming to improving safety by preventing human error and improving working conditions by reducing the work load on crew members, and demonstration experiments are being carried out on a global scale.
ClassNK, the leading classification society, certified the Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) of NYK LNG Shipmanagement Ltd. (LNGSM), the NYK Group subsidiary, and its managed LNG carrier Pacific Mimosa; becoming the first CSMS certified by the Society.
Classification Society ClassNK has concluded a joint research agreement for developing advanced condition-based maintenance (CBM); a new maintenance and management system to be used for the machineries of autonomous ships, as well as to further establish a new classification survey scheme based on CBM.
