Classification society DNV GL in late December awarded Korean shipbuilder Daehan Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (DHSC) an Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuelled 115,000 dwt Aframax tanker.
The AiP is part of a joint development project (JDP) undertaken by DHSC and DNV GL focusing on LNG powered vessels.
“We believe the completion of this joint development project will allow us to take a competitive position in a challenging market. Eco-friendly designs enabled DHCS to win newbuilding orders. The result of the JDP will be another enabler for us to strengthen our marketing strategy,” said Yong-Duk Park.
“We appreciate DNV GL’s efforts to ensure a successful JDP. Widening and deepening the technical expertise is essential to achieve DHSC’s vision to be the best medium-sized shipyard in Korea. DNV GL is the right partner to accomplish this.”
DNV GL reviewed and verified drawing packages related to gas-fuelled systems submitted by DHSC.
“We are pleased to deliver this AiP to DHSC after an intensive six-month project and successful completion,” said Vidar Dolonen during the AiP presentation ceremony.
“We appreciate that DHSC has chosen us as a partner in the project, trusting our expertise in gas-fuelled ships. This AiP is another concrete indication that the shipping industry is progressing in reducing its environmental impact.”
