DNV Cleans Up With Millennium

Friday, March 17, 2000
The premiere vessel to be built to DNV's new voluntary class notation Clean Design is Royal Caribbean International's (RCI's) Millennium - the first of a new series of green ships for RCI.

Currently under construction at Chantiers de l'Atlantique in St. Nazaire, France for the RCI-owned Celebrity Cruises, the vessel will include DNV's new design, placing it at a formidable position environmentally.

In order to comply with a variety of ship types and trading patterns, two class notations - Clean and Clean Design have been introduced. Comprised of three main areas, such as: emissions to air, operational discharges to sea and accidental discharges to sea, the Clean Design function is the stricter of the two.

Clean is designated for vessels in deep-sea trading, while Clean Design is geared toward ships trading in coastal waters and short-sea shipping, particularly for cruise vessels and ferries.
