An urgent change of mindset and a massive redirection of spending from carbon-heavy investment into clean energy is needed if an affordable transition that meets the Paris Agreement is to be achieved, says DNV in its special report: “Financing the Energy Transition“.

Keppel Technology & Innovation (KTI) has received a verification certificate for a 3D printed deck mounted type Panama Chock (SWL150Ton) from DNV, the independent energy expert and assurance provider’s Global Additive Manufacturing Technology Centre of Excellence in Singapore. The component, which is intended for non-class maritime applications, is the world’s largest 3D-printed shipboard fitting.

Production of ‘farmed’ aquatic animals will more than double from 30 million tonnes per year (Mt/yr) liveweight now to 74 Mt/yr in 2050, according to the independent assurance and risk management company. DNV’s first Marine Aquaculture Forecast warns, however, that production will not meet demand in mid-century unless the industry tackles key sustainability barriers to growth by 2030.

DNV, the independent energy expert and assurance provider, has made one of the first awards of its additive manufacturing (3D printing) quality certification to a major international service provider. DNV certification supports the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) technology for greater cost and efficiency benefits while maintaining safety across the global oil, gas and energy industries.

DNV has published new procedures designed to provide the required safety level in transporting CO2 by pipelines and strengthen the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects. This follows the outcome of the CO2SafeArrest joint industry project (JIP) between Energy Pipelines CRC (Australia) and DNV. The work has been supported by the Norwegian funding body CLIMIT and the Australian Commonwealth Government under the Carbon Capture & Storage Research Development and Demonstration Fund.
