CSSC and DNV GL have begun a strategic partnership with a focus on developing future-proof solutions and competencies for shipping in a variety of fields including alternative fuels and environmentally friendly technologies.

Focus areas will also include new vessel designs to meet the IMO greenhouse gas targets, digitalisation and cyber security. Other areas of research and exchange are the design and building of large offshore floating structures, deep sea mining and agriculture, and ocean research activities.

Under the agreement, signed during the Marintec China trade fair, DNV GL will support CSSC in their project engineering, construction and installation process by offering classification, certification, verification, consultancy, software and joint development services to the shipbuilding group.

“When the largest shipbuilding group in the world and the leading classification society are joining forces to promote smart manufacturing, new ship research and development, and clean energy utilisation, then this is of benefit for the whole maritime industry,” said CSSC’s chairman, Lei Fanpei.

During the trade fair, DNV GL and CSSC group shipyards also announced several joint projects, including an AIP to Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard for the design of a gas-fuelled 25,000 TEU container vessel, which would be the largest ship of its type to date, and a JDP with Huangpu-Wenchong Shipbuilding Company for a new energy-efficient 5,000 TEU Panamax container ship for the fast-growing intra-Asia trades.
