  • Cyber-technologies for future hull surveys

    Today, assessment of the structural condition of a vessel mostly takes place during survey, i.e. during physical tank entry. New inspection techniques such as drones and self-localizing cameras could enable cost efficient full visual mapping of tank condition on a 3D ship model.

  • Bureau Veritas Introduces New Technology Solution

    Bureau Veritas has announced the launch of the Veristar AIM 3Dasset integrity management system, based on technology partner Dassault Systems’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

    The new solution combines a digital twin of any marine or offshore assets with smart data in a collaborative environment. Veristar AIM 3D will be used in the design, development and implementation of the operational lifecycle, to reflect and predict the condition of any asset, or fleet of assets. The solution supports risk-based inspection and condition based maintenance approaches.

Shipping: The role of classification societies

An important group of organisations that exert considerable influence on the design, construction and safety of ships is the Classification Societies. Classification is defined as ‘a division by groups in order of merit’. These societies work for the benefit of ship-owners, cargo-owners and underwriters in order to ascertain if a particular ship represented a reasonable risk.

Digitalizing class services

The digital transformation of assets and information flows is currently one of the greatest changes in shipping, spurring automation of existing processes and functions and positively impacting upon safety and environmental performance. Ships are becoming sophisticated sensor hubs and data generators, and advances in satellite communications are improving ship connectivity, allowing for a massive increase in the volumes of data transferred at ever-lower cost.
