RINA released a statement according to which CSR Europe – a European business network for the Corporate Social Responsibility- has launched ‘CEOs Call to Action’, which addresses to those CEOs and companies throughout Europe that consider sustainability as a central and qualifying element in their way to do business.
As RINA informed, the new ISO/IEC 20001-1: 2018 will replace its previous edition, which will stop being valid on September 30 2021. The transition period for the new IMO has started on September 30 2018. The standard aims to ensure guarantee service management integrated and aligned with different corporate strategies.
RINA has released a new version of its electronic logbook. This tool is the first to use blockchain technology to provide a traceable record of ship data for shipping companies who want to showcase their commitment to integrity and transparency across all operations.
RINA announced that it coordinates SecureGas, a new EU-funded project, to rise the security and resilience of the European gas network. Thus, European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program has funded SecureGas, under the grant agreement no 833017, to ensure the security and resilience of the EU gas network.
According to One Sea’s press release, three major industry players joined One Sea boosting the future of autonomous ship technology in the maritime sector. Specifically, Inmarsat and MIT (Monohakobi Technology Institute) joined One Sea as full members, whereas RINA, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to become an associate member.
RINA presented its new digital equipment called the Kiber Helmet, which is a wearable device, to be used by onboard field engineers that connects them with inspectors and specialised experts ashore. Multiple people can participate in a support session and the session can also be recorded for later playback or training.
RINA, the Italian Classification Society, focused on the matter of noise coming from vessels, as the majority of noise is emitted underwater, thus the public is unaware of the problem. Yet, marine noise results to the interference of animal’s ability to hear, having a huge impact the reproduction and survival of animals.
Innovation has been crucial for the industry, as research in materials science and engineering asks for new processes. Amongst the innovations, are the powder-based processes. Manufacturing techniques, as powder metallurgy boosts the production of components for industrial sectors, as aerospace. Therefore, the aim is to lighten these components but not decrease their mechanical performance.
Solar Heat Industrial Processes deployment is very low because of economic competitiveness, low prices of fossil fuels charged to industries and to the complexity of their integration in existing industrial processes. SHIP2FAIR project aims to solve this issue using competitive and environmentally friendly solar technologies.
RINA will conduct a study on “Research needs on the use of Earth observation data for the benefit of renewable energy exploitation and deployment.” The study aims to provide the European Commission with an in-depth analysis of how Earth observation data are currently used in six renewable energy sectors.
