Classification societies are the “helping hands”, that exist to ensure industry meets regulations and operates with the safety and quality that all stakeholders demand of it, said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, DNV GL CEO Maritime, while mapping out how class can help maritime navigate the new digital reality.
Norway-based weather forecasting company StormGeo and classification society DNV GL announced the signing of an agreement to consolidate their fleet performance solutions under one banner. The consolidation creates the largest vessel performance data set and developer team in shipping.
Several hackers are pretending to be high-level executives in the shipping industry to launch ‘whaling attacks’. These attacks aim to steal credentials or even compromise the system. These hackers are targeting various types of employees with social-engineering. Whaling attacks are not new, but they grow, with the FBI noting that these attacks resulted in losses of more than $12.5 billion during 2018.
Gard Club in collaboration with DNV GL explain what are the possible cyber threats and how we can mitigate them or prevent them. Cyber threats are dynamic and can quickly change, for this reason seafarers must be very careful, in order not to put their personal or the ship’s information at risk. Namely, the easiest way for cyber criminals to attack is through negligent or poorly trained individuals.
Last week DNV GL and Klaveness Ship Management report that they conducted the world’s first digital survey on board the container ship MV Bardu. The survey gave full insights into the maintenance data from the vessel through live dashboards. The dashboard tells how many maintenance jobs MV Bardu has had in the last year and how many jobs where done before and after on due date.
Moss Maritime, in cooperation with Equinor, Wilhelmsen and DNV-GL, have developed a design for a Liquefied Hydrogen bunker vessel. The vessel design comes at a time when hydrogen is developing into a viable solution. The LH2 bunker vessel has cargo capacity of 9000 m³, with a cargo containment system aimed to enhance insulation performance and meet strict safety requirements.
A new research by DNV GL, showed that companies’ resilience to volatile market conditions will be put to the test in 2019. This will happen because business leaders expect the industry to commit to greater investment to meet hydrocarbon demand. 67% of senior oil and gas professionals believe that larger, capital-intensive oil and gas projects will be approved.
For terminals in the world’s biggest port cities, adapting to the mega container ships constitutes a major challenge. Namely, according to Jan-Olaf Probst, Director Business Development DNV GL, terminals must have the capability to deal with peak workloads, and handle large numbers of containers in a short period of time.
In the past, the Luxembourg-based company CLdN Ro-Ro, decided to build the world’s biggest short-sea ro-ro vessels. Celine, after one year of operating, has fully met her owner’s expectations. The former, along with sister-vessel Delphine, incorporate high technology from other vessel types and are LNG-ready.
2019 kicked off with the data collection on fuel oil consumption, alternative mechanisms to comply with the 2020 Sulphur cap, the EU Ship Recycling Regulation, the IMSBC Code 2017 amendment as well as amendments designating North Sea and Baltic Sea as ECAs. With many more regulations and developments still yet to come, nations from all across the globe, ship operators and crew are going through a key period because of ten major issues that will have significant impact over the next ten years in the shipping industry.
