Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS), an IACS-member classification society and NAPA, a leading software house for ship design and operation today announced that RS will take NAPA software into use to be able to better serve their customers.

Further expansion of RS presence on new and traditional markets demands first-class software tools to enhance client’s satisfaction. Shipyards, design offices and engineering companies require their drawings and calculations being reviewed and assessed by Class in shorter time with no compromise on quality and safety. NAPA software facilitates achievement of these goals. During design review of a newbuilding project or during existing ship modernization RS will use NAPA to assess and approve various calculations, such as stability calculations and statutory compliance.

Wider use of NAPA in RS will make data transfer between design bureau and classification society easier, and review of the calculations less time- and labor-consuming processes.

“We believe the RS transition to NAPA will bring us additional competitiveness by enabling to provide classification services in less time and with higher quality. It is very likely that use of NAPA by RS will promote the adaptation of this modern software application to the Russian market where shipbuilding industry is ramping up,” said Pavel Shikhov, RS Chief Operating Officer.

”NAPA has a long history of cooperation with the leading Class Societies, maritime authorities, design agencies and shipyards globally. NAPA software has been type approved by RS for a number of years, and we are very pleased to welcome RS to the group of NAPA users, as well. We are convinced that now when RS becomes a user of our software, we will together be able to support the Russian marine industry in a very effective way,” said Carl Johan Schauman, Vice President of Sales, NAPA.
