ClassNK Sets New Record for Class Entries

Thursday, January 27, 2011

ClassNK announced its final register statistics for 2010, revealing that nearly 20 million gross tons were added to the class society’s register this past year. The announcement came following a meeting of the Society’s Classification Committee, which certified that 664 vessels totaling 19,650,486 gross tons were added to the ClassNK Register in 2010. The number marks a new record for the Society, surpassing its previous record for new registrations of 18,494,843 gross tons set in 2009.

As in previous years, newbuildings made up the majority of the additions to the ClassNK Register accounting for 88.1% (585 vessels) of all new additions on a vessel basis and 90.6% (17,807,446 gross tons) of all tonnage added to the register in 2010.

The ClassNK Classification Committee also certified the status of ClassNK’s total register, confirming that the Society had 7,347 vessels totaling 179,478,084 gross tons on its register at the end of 2010. This represents a net increase of more than 10.6 million (10,613,799) gt, or a more than 6% increase over the Society’s year end figures for 2009.

Reflecting on the impressive statistics, ClassNK Chairman and President Noboru Ueda stated “Since assuming the role of Chairman and President in 2008, I have made it my mission to improve every aspect of our operations as a classification society, and I believe our strong results in 2010 are a reflection of this renewed commitment. With this strong vote of confidence from the maritime industry, I intend to further expand our efforts to provide even better service to the global maritime community.”
