DNV GL hails launch of new rules
Efficient, flexible and future proof: Class society DNV GL believes its new rules, published today and coming into effect on 1 January 2016, set a new industry benchmark.
One major change is the introduction of equivalent design waves (EDW) to calculate environmental loads – a more cost-effective and precise method than full spectral analysis, requiring less computational resource.
Modern tools and software have also been integrated, making the rules responsive to future developments. New technologies including battery installations and hybrid propulsion concepts, gas-fuelled readiness and LNG bunkering vessels are also supported through additional class notations. The rules simplify new designs by providing 38 defined ship type class notations, while any documentation and certification requirements are summarised throughout the rules.
Remi Eriksen, DNV GL group president and CEO, said: “The engagement of our customers and industry stakeholders has been overwhelming. From our initial discussions, through the review and external hearing process we have received invaluable input and we are deeply grateful for the consideration and enthusiasm of all involved.”
Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO of DNV GL Maritime added: “I’m proud we took advantage of the unique opportunity to have a fresh look at our rules and have created a new industry benchmark. I believe this new rule set gives us an even better basis to deliver the safety, efficiency and quality our customers expect.”
