DNV GL awards AiP to Daehan Shipbuilding for LNG-fuelled Aframax design

As the maritime industry continues to build on its efforts to reduce emissions to air, LNG as a ship fuel is attracting a great deal of attention across many ship sizes and types. The new joint development project (JDP) undertaken by DHSC and DNV GL focussed on producing a design that is tailored to these 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 Yong-Duk Park.

As a market leader in the global Aframax sector, Daehan now has an approved design and source technology that can satisfy the sulphur cap regulations which will take effect on 1 January 2020.

“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,” said Mr Park.

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 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.”
