ABS and HHI optimise LNG carrier design

ABS and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have completed a joint development project (JDP) to develop an optimised liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier design. The JDP resulted in a new LNG carrier hull design, as well as optimisation of the machinery, electrical and piping arrangements. The project further developed new rule requirements and introduced a simplified...

DNV and Nakilat enter JDP to improve vessel software reliability

Nakilat, DNV, and a group of yards and system suppliers have teamed up on a joint development project (JDP) to elevate software reliability and maintenance during shipping operations. Vessel functions rely heavily on computerised software-based systems that are becoming more complex, automated and integrated. Software failures or reliability issues can now result in significant safety...

Oil viscosity a primary factor in EAL suitability finds ABS-led research

A Joint Development Project (JDP) between ABS, Vickers Oil, and Imperial College London has found that oil viscosity is the primary property to be considered when selecting a suitable environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) for use with stern tube bearings. The study evaluated EAL properties relative to traditional mineral oil-based lubricants and concluded that the viscosity...
