ClassNK releases new guidelines for OSVs

03 Sep 2010

ClassNK has released new guidelines specifically for Offshore Support Vessels (OSV) and other workboats.

The new guidelines, which are being released in both English and Chinese, compile all of the ClassNK rules applicable to the construction and survey of tugs, OSVs, Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) vessels and other work boats. Designed to be a complete and easy to use reference for work boat designers, builders, and operators, the new guidelines include complete chapters on work boat construction, installations, and positioning systems, as well as specific requirements for specialized work boats like fire fighting vessels.

The release of these new guidelines come as part of ClassNK’s continued expansion into the global work boat market which accounted for nearly 25% of the newbuildings classed by NK last year.
