KR launches SeaTrust-Frame3D software

Korean Register (KR) has launched ‘SeaTrust-Frame3D’, a grillage structure evaluation software for ships. SeaTrust-Frame3D enables a complicated ship structure to be simply modelled by representing it as a grillage structure. The software allows the designer to conduct and analyse structural strength and rule-based buckling strength evaluations, the results of which are displayed as 3D images,...

KR launches class notation for underwater radiated noise

The Korean Register (KR) has developed new ‘Guidance for Underwater Radiated Noise’ to help protect marine ecosystems by reducing noise from ships. Underwater radiated noise is becoming a more serious issue as the size and speed of ships increases to handle high volumes of seaborne trade. The noise from ships’ engines can cause significant disruption...

KR awards AiP for Korea’s first onboard carbon capture & storage system

The Korean Register (KR) has awarded approval in principle (AiP) to Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and Panasia for their ‘onboard carbon capture and storage system (OCCS)’. The technology captures the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted in the exhaust gases generated from the internal combustion engines of ships. The optimised wet absorption type carbon dioxide capture device...

KR SeaTrust-HullScan interfaces with NAPA Steel 3D model

The Korean Register (KR) and NAPA have successfully created a ‘live interface function’ for their respective software programs KR SeaTrust-HullScan and NAPA Steel. The function allows real time synchronisation of a ship’s structural data from the NAPA software to KR’s SeaTrust-HullScan. KR SeaTrust-HullScan is a technical software that performs a structural analysis of oil-tankers and...

KR releases new class rules for membrane-type LNG carriers

The Korean Register (KR) has developed new class rules that completely revise the existing structural rules for membrane-type LNG carriers. The new class rules apply the concept of EDW (Equivalent Design Wave) based on direct load analysis to determine structural arrangements and scantling that meet the structural strength, buckling and fatigue strength criteria for various...

KR grants design approval to DSME’s Solidus

The Korean Register (KR) has formally granted design approval to DSME for the company’s Solidus LNG cargo containment system. DSME and German chemical company BASF developed a high-performance and environmentally friendly insulation material in order to significantly lower the LNG boil-off rates. In addition, to prevent any LNG leakage from Solidus, and to maximise the...

Korean Register moves to e-certificates

The Korean Register (KR) has moved to IMO-compliant electronic class and statutory certificates across its classed fleet. The new paperless certificates will cut administrative tasks for customers, saving time and costs and reducing human error. KR also expects electronic certificates to reduce loss or damage to original paper certificates and minimise Port State Control (PSC)...
