Piraeus, Greece, 30 March 2021: Propulsion Analytics, a Greek high-tech company providing vessel and engine performance evaluation applications, and DNV have received funding from Innovation Norway to develop a Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) application for ships. The project will result in an innovative CBM service for ships, with validated methods and accredited tools that merge thermodynamic modelling with artificial intelligence to diagnose machinery system faults and predict performance in marine powerplants.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) received an Approval in Principle (AiP) from leading classification society DNV for the DSME Rotor Sail System, an eco-friendly ship technology applicable to large oil tankers and LNG carriers.

DNV GL, the world’s leading classification society, has joined the Smart Maritime Network, an initiative dedicated to supporting collaboration and standardization in the development of IT systems for the shipping sector. Bjørn-Johan Vartdal, Head of DNV GL’s Maritime Incubator, and Magnus Lande, Head of APAC for Veracity by DNV GL, will also join the Smart Maritime Council.

DNV GL, the world’s leading classification society, released a white paper – “Closing the safety gap in an era of transformation” – at a press conference today. The white paper identifies a looming “safety gap” between shipping’s existing approach to safety risks and its ambitions for greater digitalisation and the adoption of alternative fuels.

DNV GL, the world’s leading classification society, has awarded AYRO an Approval in Principle (AiP) for its Oceanwings 3.6.3 wind assisted propulsion system for ships. The Oceanwings 3.6.3 system is designed to enable ship owners and operators to leverage wind energy to improve the energy balance of individual vessels and fleets, thereby significantly reducing carbon emissions.
