Ammonia as a ship fuel presents additional risks when compared to conventional liquid fuels such as LNG, LPG, and methyl/ethyl alcohol, but it is possible to lower these risks by developing alternative and additional requirements to the existing IGC Code, according to a new report by Korean Register.
The Korean Register recently issued world’s first Cyber Security (CS Ready) class notation for a very large liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carrier to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).
The Korean classification society, Korean Register (KR) opened a new LNG fuel and bunkering simulation center at its headquarters in Busan.
Hyundai Mipo Dockyard along with Korea Maritime Transport and the Korean Register shake their hands and inked a MoU for the Joint Development Project (JDP) of a 1.800TEU class container ship.
The Korean Register recently granted an Approval in Principle (AIP) to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for its LNG dual fuel propulsion car carrier. In fact, the AIP covers two pure car and truck carriers vessels with a carrying capacity of 7.000 and 8.1000 CEU (car equivalent units).
Classification Society, Korean Register (KR), completed a comprehensive cyber security survey onboard the chemical/oil tanker Songa Hawk and certified the ship to be fully compliant in all areas. Following the survey, the Marsall-Islands flag vessel becomes the first ship to acquire this type of certification. The company has inked a five-year cybersecurity contract with KR in 2018, covering its fleet of 23 vessels.
The Korean Register issued its cybersecurity newsletter focusing on cyber security issues which play a major role in the shipping industry, affecting operations and seafarers. KR presents the example of wireless LANs, which are vulnerable to different attack methods than wired LANs.
In its February 2020 newsletter, the Korean Register informs that the cyber security type approval has been developed based on international standards such as ISA 62443 4-2, IEC 61162-460, and inspect cyber security level and function of cyber systems including remote access equipment; integrated control and monitoring systems on board the ship. The security requirements and their levels are verified on 12 categories and 124 requirements.
In its February 2020 newsletter the Korean Register informs that that the goal of the OpenWeb Application Security Project (OWASP)’s Things Internet Project is to help manufacturers, developers, and consumers further understand more accurately the security issues associated with the Internet of Things and help users make wiser decisions in terms of security when building, distributing or evaluating IoT technology. Namely, in the infographic provided, OWASP informs about the ten vulnerabilities concerning the IoT.
In its February 2020 newsletter, the Korean Register introduces wireless networks in relation to their vulnerability and potential countermeasures. It is said that wireless networks are often used in environments in the existing concept of wired LAN expansion; and most of them are composed of the form of connecting wireless AP to existing wired LANs and installing wireless LAN cards to clients. Thus, the separation of wired LAN and wireless LAN is not considered at all- KR stresses that this constitutes a security problem.
