Lloyd’s Register, Classification Society, is collaborating with Seabury Maritime, LLC, the global maritime investment banking and industry advisory company, to help the shipping stakeholders make key business decisions on digitalization and decarbonization issues based on the operational and capital expenditure challenges they face.
Stena Rederi, a part of Swedish shipping company Stena AB, and German Glovis Europe are to collaborate in an attempt to operate car and truck vessels in Europe. Both companies have filed documents with the European Commission’s competition authorities to launch their partnership that will operate short-sea transport services on pure car and truck carrier vessels in Europe, according to Lloyd’s register.
According to Lloyd’s Register, the new rules will support innovation in the sector by establishing requirements for which compliance can be demonstrated through the application of risk-based assessment techniques.
Lloyd’s Register announced that it classed the first personal, composite submarine, the DeepFlight Super Falcon 3S, in accordance with its Rules for the Construction and Classification of Submersibles and Diving Systems.
By working together, LR and ABS have provided fully up-to-date straightforward tools for the whole industry to use when applying CSR.
Lloyd’s Register and the new Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine, Singapore (TCOMS) have agreed to jointly develop technology, infrastructure and skills necessary for future marine and offshore systems, digital and data innovation, and robotic autonomous systems in a marine environment.
Lloyd’s Register and Keppel collaborate to enhance semi-submersible designs. Co-funded by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, the project will use Lloyd’s Register’s ‘NewWave’ simulation tool and Keppel’s in-house semi-submersible model test data to develop “Numerical Wave Basin” in order to improve both safety and performance of new semi-submersible designs.
The joint development project was signed on 15 March in Seoul by General Electric (GE), Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Lloyd’s Register’s (LR), and is the latest step in the development of gas turbine powered ship designs suitable for deep sea, commercial applications.
LR has announced a new global certification framework which will help manufacturers and end users of equipement achieve ‘best practice’ in additive manufacturing and a route to certification. Accelerating the use of certified products made by additive manufacturing (AM) techniques at a time of low oil prices will help onshore and offshore companies gain commercial advantage through cost efficiencies and repeatable quality engineered components.
LR awarded the contract for classification of the first ever vessels ordered by a Danish ship owner to the new Harmonised CSR (CSR-H)
