Similarly, the fully-integated MAN HyProp ECO frequency drive for DE operation system will control the rotation of the five-bladed Alpha propeller. Notably, both auxiliary engines are double-resilient seated.SILENT F designationThe DNV-GL’s SILENT class is the first set of rules for underwater noise emission from vessels ever published. It provides owners of acoustically-sensitive vessels with concise, realistic criteria regarding underwater noise-emissions. It also gives environmentally-conscious owners an opportunity to

Thyssenkrupp Wins 3D Printing Approval

The international accredited registrar and classification society DNV GL has awarded thyssenkrupp, German multinational conglomerate, first additive manufacturing  approval of manufacturer certificateThe shipping industry is looking to take advantage of additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, to print spare parts, thereby reducing lead times, costs, stock requirements, and environmental impacts. Certification ensures that AM part users can have the same confidence in an additive manufactured product as a conventionally produced one.The newly issued certificate makes the thyssenkrupp

DNV GL Launches Renewables Certification Ops in U.S.

With the U.S. offshore wind industry poised for rapid growth, DNV GL has established a Renewables Certification office in Medford, Mass., to meet the growing demands for certification services. While the U.S. is still a generation behind Europe in the exploitation of offshore wind energy resources, it could catch up quickly, as, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), there is the potential to install 22,000 MW of offshore wind projects in the U.S. by 2030. Much of this activity is taking place in the Northeast, with Massachusetts and New York setting aggressive targets and leading the

will both dramatically benefit from Hydrone-R and the entire Hydrone Program in the years to come”, said Saipem E&C Offshore Division COO Stefano Porcari.“We are proud to be the forerunner in this technology. Our extensive qualification test campaign has been thoroughly scrutinized by DNVGL and other reputable experts in order to attain a third-party qualification for subsea resident use by November 2019. Having something that can intervene in an autonomous way will reduce vessel costs and the overall carbon footprint for sure, but it will also improve the uptime of a subsea asset
