DNV GL adds gas bunkering notation
A new class notation for gas bunker vessels has been developed to ensure safe fuel transfer operations from one ship to another in and around ports.
Until now, the development of standards guiding gas fuel transfer operations in ports has lagged behind, as the maritime industry focussed on developing standards for gas fuelled ships rather than bunkering arrangements.
DNV GL’s new notation addresses safety concerns in this field and covers gas bunker vessels design and additional requirements to support the development of gas fuelled shipping and bunker operations in ports. The rules are flexible and include a variety of gas fuels as well as the configuration of bunker transfer systems.
