Jan 04 2019

DNV GL has awarded Daehan Shipbuilding (DHSC) an Agreement in Principle (AiP) for its LNG-fuelled Aframax design.

The new joint development project (JDP) undertaken by DHSC and DNV GL focusses on producing a design that is tailored to the emerging regulatory and market trends.

“We believe the completion of this joint development project will allow us to take a competitive position in a challenging market. 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,” said DHSC’s president and CEO, Yong-Duk Park.

“We appreciate DNV GL’s efforts to ensure a successful JDP. Widening and deepening the technical expertise is essential to achieve DHSC’s vision to be the best medium-sized shipyard in Korea. DNV GL is the right partner to accomplish this,” he added.

DNV GL reviewed and verified drawing packages related to gas-fuelled systems submitted by DHSC. “We are pleased to deliver this AiP to DHSC after an intensive six-month project and successful completion,” said DNV GL’s Japan and South Korean regional manager, Vidar Dolonen during the AiP presentation ceremony. “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.”
