Oslo, Norway, 27 September 2018: DNV GL Noble Denton marine services has released a new edition of the ST-N001 Marine operations and marine warranty standard, the industry’s most comprehensive standard for the warranty approval of marine operations, covering all different asset and operation types.

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO of DNV GL – Maritime, presented Lin Ou, Chairman & President of Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co., Ltd, with an approval in principle (AiP) for the “LNG JUMBO”, a new LNG carrier design with GTT MK III Flex Cargo Containment System, at the SMM trade fair in Hamburg today. The flexible, efficient and environmentally friendly design was developed by Jiangnan Shipyard in cooperation with ship designer MARIC, GTT, DNV GL and major equipment manufacturers.

DNV GL and Menon Economics announced that China is the top international shipping nation according to their new report “The Leading Maritime Nations of the World”, which was presented at the SMM trade fair in Hamburg today. The study benchmarks the 30 leading maritime nations around the world in four key maritime pillars: shipping, finance and law, maritime technology and ports & logistics, in an attempt to understand the key drivers behind national maritime success.

The pressure is on for the shipping industry to reduce emissions. In the last few years, both the European Union (EU) and IMO have introduced regulations which require ship operators to gather and report their vessels’ fuel consumption. To help make this reporting process simple, speedy, and streamlined, DNV GL has introduced a combined reporting and verification online tool.

As the shipping industry continues its push to reduce emissions to air, classification society DNV GL announced a new class notation for exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS). The new notation, Emission reduction (ER), will cover not only scrubbers for removing SOx, but selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems for removing NOx. The new notation will be published in July 2018.
