CCS-DNV Technology Institute Inaugurated

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
CCS-DNV Technology Institute, a joint venture between the two leading class societies - China Classification Society and Det Norske Veritas, was recently inaugurated in Shanghai. The institute is the first of its kind in China. It aims to support both the maritime and offshore industries on various laboratory and research challenges. The first phase will focus on coating testing to respond to the IMO rules on PSPC. The institute’s coating laboratory performs testing according to the IMO’s PSPC requirement of prequalification testing of coatings for seawater ballast tanks. The practical testing is to simulate exposure by submerging samples into a tank of seawater and replicating the movement of the ship for 180 days. The Institute will expand its laboratory services into fuel; lube oil testing and materials and strength during the next phases. [Source: http://www.oilonline.com]
