IRClass Opens Maritime, Shipbuilding Centre of Excellence

Indian Register of Shipping has launched a centre of excellence in shipbuilding and maritime sector to support commercial ship design for seagoing, coastal and inland waterways operation in India.

Established in association with India’s Ministry of Shipping and Siemens, the Centre of Excellence in Maritime and Shipbuilding (CEMS) was formed in view of demand of various industries within the maritime sector, the current market scenario and the effect and needs of Sagarmala projects.

“For IRS it is a watershed moment to be entering the area of skill development in Maritime and Shipbuilding, both synergistic and complementary,” Arun Sharma, Executive Chairman, said.

The centre will support various Indian shipyards for their ship design needs for basic design and detailed working design for production. It will also study the market needs and develop appropriate ship designs catering to the requirements for the development and growth of Indian shipping considering the needs of ship owners and operators in the country, the classification society informed.

CEMS will deploy an industry-relevant skill development program, and equip students with employable engineering and technical skills in the areas of ship hull design, ship detailed design, shipbuilding & maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO), product lifecycle management (PLM), and advanced digital manufacturing-factory concepts.
