As part of the strategic cooperation agreement signed between SUMEC Marine Company Ltd. and DNV GL last year, SUMEC’s New Dayang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. and DNV GL have agreed on a Joint Development Project (JDP) to update the Crown 63.5k Bulk Carrier design. 

The agreement was signed at the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo.

The JDP will include the application of the new harmonized common structural rules (HCSR) to the design, as well as a focus on improving the energy efficiency of the design, particularly in the ship board machinery and electrical systems. Additionally, the JDP includes a more general evaluation of different propulsion systems for bulk carrier designs in general, in terms of future environmental requirements that can impact CAPEX and OPEX.
