The shipbuilding company, Hudong-Zhonghua was awarded with an Approval in Principle (AiP) certificate from DNV GL for its largest gas-fueled 25000TEU Ultra Large Container vessel (ULCS) design at the CSSC booth. The award ceremony was held at the Marintec China trade fair in Shanghai.
During Marintec China trade fair in Shanghai, DNV GL inked a cooperation agreement with Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Limited (GSI) to launch a project to enhance welding non-destructive testing (NDT) efficiency through the automatic detection and assessment of radiography testing (RT) digital images.
Classification society DNV GL has unveiled the new class rules and the class notation ‘Gas Fuelled LPG’ for ships using liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as fuel with the aims to accommodate the growing industry interest ahead of IMO 2020 and the overall decarbonization of the industry.
The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a crucial role in the shipping industry and the development of digitalization, and is an element of compositional architectures like digital twins, smart cities; Yet, IoT still faces challenges and a feeling of uncertainty.
Digital Twins emerged as a technological trend in the shipping industry a while ago, but now the sector acknowledges this technology as a powerful combination of models and data, which represents a giant leap from first efforts at modelling complex systems.
In line its “Technology Outlook 2030” report, DNV GL focuses on the mitigation of CO2 emissions and how the industries can deal with, looking for ways to recycle CO2, capture the emissions and store them, proposing the launch of negative emissions technologies to tackle the issue.
DNV GL’s “Technology Outlook 2030” outlines future technologies and their impact on the shipping industry, focusing on how these technologies will affect various sectors, from the shipping industry to energy or food sectors.
DNV GL focuses on the changes made in June 2018, concerning the operation of the crew conducting the annually required class test of the standby generator functionality without class attendance needed, resulting to a better flexibility.
The Norwegian Maritime Authority met with DNV GL to discuss on developing an ultrasound system to check the keel bolts in wooden vessels, in order to avoid pulling them. Although, several studies have shown that ultrasound system has limitations and may not provide the right results, it still may be the only method to avoid pulling the keel bolts, the Authority commented.
DNV GL announced a new system designed for modern LR2 tankers, with easy-to-clean corrugated tank walls, deep-well pumps and high-performance tank washing machines. Notably, the new class notation is mainly intended for new ships since some criteria, including stripping efficiency, are subject to specific test requirements. Nevertheless, it may be awarded to existing vessels as well, if they meet the criteria. The new ITC rules have been published in July 2019, with an effective date of 1 January 2020.
