Demand for ICOMIA's KEEL-CHECKER

Monday, July 11, 2011

The ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations) Secretariat is pleased to report a significant industry interest in the recently-launched KEEL-CHECKER. So far, the Secretariat has received over 130 enquiries regarding the online software.

KEEL-CHECKER was launched in March of this year. It is a tool for assessing whether keel designs are within the parameters of the new standard ISO 12215 Part 9, which has gone into Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) voting. Although the new standard has still a few months to go until publication, many organizations already require compliant keel designs. KEEL-CHECKER was developed by Dr. Robin Loscombe, a member of the ISO working group and a senior lecturer at Southampton Solent University.

“This initiative by ICOMIA and Southampton Solent University has been shown to be of significant value to the industry and we shall be completing other similar projects within the near future,” said Tony Rice, ICOMIA Secretary General.

The software can be downloaded free of charge from the ICOMIA website. To access the KEEL-CHECKER, contact the ICOMIA Secretariat on info@icomia.com.
