Leading classification society DNV GL announced that Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) INTELLIMAN Ship software complies with the EU-MRV and IMO-DCS regulations. DNV GL issued a factual statement confirming compliance in a ceremony at the SHI R&D Center in Daejeon, South Korea.
SHI has been developing smart ship technology since 2016 and it has been applied to certain ships including LNG carriers and large container ships. The INTELLIMAN Ship is an integrated smart ship solution which facilitates data management from fleet operation to life-cycle service both on shore and on board with the latest ICT in a cloud data center developed by Samsung Heavy Industries.
The EU-MRV and IMO-DCS software in INTELLIMAN Ship is an optimized solution to respond to CO2 emission reduction regulations: EU-MRV and IMO-DCS, which came into effect in January 2018 and January 2019 respectively.
“We are working to provide our customers with useful smart ship solutions. As a result, we have developed effective solutions for meeting demands of maritime environmental regulations through collaboration with DNV GL. We will continue to focus on developing safe and environmentally friendly smart ships,” said Yong Lae Shim, Vice President of SHI Ship and Offshore Research Institute.
DNV GL’s Software advisory team in Hamburg assessed the compliance of the Samsung’s INTELLIMAN Ship software with the EU-MRV and DCS regulations, including the corresponding standard templates, by remote testing the monitoring-reporting process in terms of both content and functionality. DNV GL also confirmed that the software can be used as a recording and reporting tool fulfilling the requirements of the EU-MRV and DCS regulations, and is applicable to all ship types built at the SHI shipyard.
“We are pleased that SHI asked us to work with them on the verification of this software. The IMO DCS and EU MRV will be important regulations in terms of shipping meeting its carbon reduction goals,” said Vidar Dolonen, Regional Manager of DNV GL Korea & Japan. “At DNV GL we are always working to help our customers make the right decisions and prepare for compliance with upcoming regulations. The support from our Software advisory team in Hamburg shows how DNV GL’s global network enables us to provide our customers service efficiently, utilising the best expertise from around the world.”
