An industry partnership comprising Eidesvik Offshore, Wärtsilä Norway and DNV GL announced the closure of the FellowSHIP research project, which has been exploring the use of battery, hybrid and fuel cell technology in the maritime industry for over 15 years.
As the shipping industry is trying to find ways to reduce emissions, the European Union and IMO have announced regulations which require from operators to collect and report their ships’ fuel consumption. To assist in this, DNV GL released a combined reporting and verification online tool.
A new feasibility study, led by Sandia National Laboratories with naval architect Glosten, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and DNV GL, assessed the technical, regulatory, and economic feasibility of a coastal research vessel powered solely by hydrogen fuel cells, to make marine research pollution-free.
US-based trade giant Cargill announced the launch of ‘CO2 Challenge’ which aims to find and scale new technologies capable of reducing a ship’s gross CO2 emissions by 10%. The initiative, focused on decarbonizing the shipping sector, is being launched in partnership with DNV GL.
Nearly two-thirds (64%) of oil and gas sector leaders expect to increase or sustain spending on gas projects in 2018, as the sector prepares for gas to overtake oil as the world’s primary energy source in the mid-2030s, according to a survey by DNV GL, which reveals a growing confidence in the case for gas.
DNV GL unveiled the final reports in a study which demonstrates the commercial and technical feasibility of the offshore wind market In India. Co-funded by the European Union, GPCL and ReNew Power, the FOWIND project is intended to enable organisations to make future investments in the region.
DNV GL developed the first type approval scheme for the use of aluminium cables and connectors onboard vessels. Aluminium cables have been tested in a pilot installation onboard the Olympic Artemis, a multi-purpose offshore support vessel. The survey indicated perfect connections and DNV GL granted the type approvals.
Over the last years, cyber security is turning into a key area of concern for all industries and sectors, with the maritime industry making no exemption. Craig Reeds, CISSP, Cyber Security Senior Consultant DNV GL – Digital Solutions, provided the seven steps to a cyber attack, exploring a change in the way that hacks are being performed.
The short video-issued by DNV GL, aims to raise awareness into cyber risk and how it can affect ship operations. Hackers today are becoming more and more sophisticated, so by the time someone realize that something goes wrong, it is usually too late. This is why cyber security is an issue of mindset and culture.
Classification society DNV GL announced that it released its first class notations, aiming to help shipowners and operators protect their assets from cyber security threats. The new class notations are called “Cyber secure” and they will be published on 1 July 2018. The Cyber secure class notations have three different qualifiers: Basic; Advanced; and +.
