Vidar Dolonen of DNV GL with Yong-Duk Park, CEO & President of DHSC AiP certificate award ceremony at DSHC

Korean shipbuilder, Daehan Shipbuilding (DHSC), has been given approval in principle from DNV GL for a new LNG-fuelled 115k dwt Aframax tanker.

Daehan now has an approved design and source technology that can satisfy the sulphur cap regulations which will take effect on 1 January 2020. DNV GL participated in the joint development project, reviewing and verifying drawing packages related to gas-fuelled systems submitted by Daehan.

Mr Yong-Duk Park, CEO and president of Daehan, said: “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.”

Presenting the approval in principle, DNV GL’s Regional Manager of Korea & Japan, Vidar Dolonen, said: “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.”
