South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and classification society DNV GL have signed a framework agreement under which they will cooperate on future projects and technologies.

The two sides’ joint development projects (JDPs) will address the shipbuilding and offshore plant industries.

“Through the JDPs with DNV GL, we aim to develop new technologies to meet the needs of our clients and further provide the direction in the shipbuilding and offshore industries,” Sung-Geun Lee, DSME President & CEO, said.

“We strongly believe the joint research of these two global technical leaders will provide a significant platform to achieve these goals.”

Planned joint studies include 3D model hull approval, the estimation of allowable wave heights for a 174,000 cbm LNG FSRU, and a structural safety assessment for Solidus, which is an LNG cargo containment system developed by DSME.

“The agreement is an extension of the technical partnership that has been in place for decades,” Remi Eriksen, DNV GL Group President & CEO, said.

In the context of the enlarged cooperation, DNV GL presented DSME with a general approval for ship application for the Solidus LNG cargo containment system.

“The Solidus design improves the newbuilding productivity and significantly reduces costs, making it a big step forward in developing the LNG carrier industry for shipbuilders and suppliers,” Sung-Geun Lee added.
